Thinking of you my sweet Kevin. Please bless, help and watch over Tyler. He is the most amazing son. He is so good to me. I know you are so proud of him. He just gave me the most beautiful roses like you always did. Also please help Ashlee. She did enjoy video games but has nobody to play with. I feel so bad for her. She is being neglected by those she shouldn’t be neglected by. She was hurt by her 2 friends and now again. She has had more trials than anyone I know. I don’t understand why. She is the sweetest little girl and deserves so much more. She is so much like you. She is non judgmental, kind and a heart of gold.
Thank you for always loving me so deeply. I know death didn’t change that.
I’m so thankful to your family who have been so supportive of me remarrying because they know you didn’t want me to be alone. I love you my sweetheart. Always and Forever
