"Hi Sweetie, I watched a movie last  night , it was about a lady dieing from cancer. It made me think of you (which I do all the time anyway) but more while watching the show. When you said to me, "I'm scared" Oh my Sweetie, I wished I had seen the movie before that time, I would have known what to say to you. My Darling, you're home now and I will see you again. Love you constantly.
Your Cutie."

You cried.. which, of course, made me cry.. not a dry eye in the place that day (not a dry eye here either while I type this note to you). Miss you lots and lots. xo"

"I'm not even sure of how to start this note Sweetie, It's been 16 years since I met you and it just doesn't seem that I can live on without you, and yet here I am, still lonely since your passing, still loving you, still wishing........,This day was supposed to be wonderful for us for years to come, but it wasn't to be. Remember that shoe darling, well it fell with a horrific thud. But Sweetie, I don't blame you, it was not your doing. If only we had known, My heart, my soul belongs to you and will always.
On this day, our anniversary, it's especially hard to take known the fact.
So long my darling, till we meet again. You are always on my mind and in my heart!
To my Sweetie from you Cutie."

Your Cutie"

"It's been awhile, it's not that I don't miss you, it's not that I don't love like crazy, It's not that I don't say to you "Good Morning Sweetie," every morning, it's not that I don't say "Good Night Sweetie" every night, It's that every time I think of you, I can't help but be angry, lonesome, and wanting you by my side. I know which will only happen in death.

As always, your cutie."
