I just wanted you to know it’s going to be hard to walk this journey without you. I now know you are my rock and I am finding out you are everybody else’s rock as well. Everybody misses you and loves you as much as I do. You left me too early in life. I know how strong, and compassionate you are to family and friends. At this time I just want to let you know you touched so many people’s lives. I just want to say thank you.
Your loving Husband.”
