On the eve of our last normal night together so many years ago. I remember everything as if it were a movie. What we did ,where we went, what we ate. It was a regular evening, never realizing it would be our last. I thank god for the children you gave me as a reminder of the goodness in the world. I miss you every day and will love you until my last breath. Your Ali.
