    I love you, Honey. None of this seems real to me. I miss you so much!! I can't even begin to imagine life without you. I wasn't ready for you to go. It came way too soon. We had our share of differences over the years but through the mercy and grace of God He so amazingly let us express our love for one another in the last moments of your life here on earth. I will remember our final words until I die and join you again in heaven. I love you, I love you, I love you and although you could barely get the words out and the sound was coming from deep within you every time I said I love you, you repeated them back to me. God gave those moments to you and me so we could know how very much we loved one another. Those were the last words you uttered in this life but I know you're in heaven now waiting til we meet again someday in a place with no more pain, no more sorrow, no more cancer, no more cross words, no more sin but a perfect place that God has planned for His children where there will be perfect peace and where we'll never die but be in the presence of Jesus forever and evermore. I love you, Honey and my heart is breaking because you are not here with me and the boys.....your "muscle dog" Oreo and your "best buddy" Bingo. I'm thankful for the years we had together, for the good times and the bad. They went by way too fast!
