"It's so difficult to believe five years have passed today since we lost you. Life has been a struggle without you. I remember when my family moved to Boyd you said the first time you saw me at the skating rink in a red skating skirt you made up your mind you would marry me! The past week I have thought if Alvin was here he would get help for me, but I would not want  to bring you back to suffer the horrible cancer that took you from us. One day soon the Lord will take me to join you, my Mom and Dad and so many others. That will be the most wonderful blessing!"
