In my thoughts,
In my life...

"I talk about him, not because I can't move on,
I talk about him because I am his and he is mine,
And no passage of time will ever change that.

My reply was simple, Yes! until the very last breath I take.

Grief can only exist where there is true love..."

Others may be there and listen
but I walk alone down this path

I am honored he left this life loving me."

"If you know someone who has lost a very important person in their life
and you're afraid to mention that person because you think you may make them sad by reminding them of the loss of their loved one...
your not reminding them, they didn't forget that they are gone.
What you're reminding them of is that they lived and they are not forgotten.       and that is a great, great gift.

You are one of a kind and I love you with all my heart."

I came across a picture of you and I today,
The tears just stared falling, but I couldn't turn away.
I closed my eyes and I was there, that day so long ago.
I saw your eyes so alive and still shining bright.
I swear I heard your laughter as I looked upon your face,
That golden and contagious sound that nothing can ever replace.
It brought back such sweet memories of how life used to be...
Each picture now a time machine...that brings you back to me.

I love and miss you so much."

"Grief, I have learned is really just love,
It's all the love you want to give, but cannot.
All of that unspent love gathers in the corners of your eyes,
the lump in your throat, and in the hollow of your chest.
Grief is just love with no place to go.

I love you...
Forever loved ~ Never forgotten"
