"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"

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 11th July 2017

"Love is not something you can go out and look for,
Real love finds you, and when it does, ready or not,
It is the best thing to ever happen to you...

Your loss was the hardest thing I have ever had to survive,
But the love you left behind is what keeps me going.
My love for you is forever and always."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 8th July 2017

"My loss is not a test
My loss is not  a lesson
My loss is a loss...

I only miss you when I'm breathing..."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 1st July 2017

"I remember you...
I can picture you, like a photograph in my mind.
I can see your smile, I can hear your laugh
I remember you...
When I'm all alone, I tell you things, I talk out loud
Since the day you left
I remember you...
And even when I close my eyes
Like a beautiful dream, you come back to life
I feel your love and I feel your light
And I will forever remember you."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 23rd June 2017

"Butch, I used to think I couldn't go a day without seeing your face or
hearing your voice...
Then that day arrived and it was the hardest day of my life,
but then the next day was even harder, and I knew with a sinking feeling
it was going to get so much worse and it wasn't going to be okay for a very long time. Because losing someone you love isn't just a one time thing,
it happens over and over again...
I lose you every time I pick up your favorite coffee cup or whenever
that one special song comes on the radio, when I find one of your
t-shirts in the laundry. I lose you every time I think of kissing you,
hugging you or holding your hand, I miss holding your hand so much.
I go to bed and I lose you, when I wish I could tell you about my day.
And in the morning, when I wake up and reach for the empty space
across the sheets, I begin to lose you all over again. The loss is never ending and I know it will never change. I love you with all my heart forever and ever."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 17th June 2017

"Being someone's first love is wonderful,
But being their last love is priceless...

I will not hide my grief for you,
Because I never hide my love for you...

I close my eyes and speak to you in a thousand silent ways.
My love for you is never ending ~ Forever and ever."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 12th June 2017

"Butch,
My mind knows you are in a better place,
Where there is no pain and you are at peace.
I understand that...
I just wish I could explain it to my heart.

It was always easy to love you,
A lifetime with you would never have been enough.
My love for eternity. And in your words  "I will see you someday"

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 4th June 2017

"Yesterday started out as just another day, but it turned out to be one of the best days ever. While working on your little red truck, Don, who is the only person you ever allowed to touch any of our cars, was looking under the truck and found a small black folder, when he handed it to me and I opened it there was a beautiful note inside. The only way I can describe it is as someone said  "That is sadly wonderful"  I was crying happy tears and sad tears all at the same time, sad because I knew you were thinking you would not be here, and happy because you wanted to make sure we knew how much you loved us and that we would be together again someday. Thank you for giving me something so special, I will treasure it forever. I love you and miss you every minute of every day.

When two hearts are meant for each other
no distance is to far, no time is to long,
nothing can ever break them apart."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 26th May 2017

"He is in every beat of my heart
My Angel up above, who I miss every moment of my life.
The one I want to hug so tight and never let go.
The one who is never more than a thought away.
You are loved, remembered and missed every single day.
I love you with all my heart ~ Forever and ever.
Remembering our Anniversary and wishing you were here."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 26th May 2017

"If I could visit Heaven, even for a day,
Maybe for a moment the pain would go away.
I would put my arms around you and whisper words so true,
that living life with out you is the hardest thing I have ever had to do.
No matter how I spend this day, no matter what I do,
I will be forever loving you. Happy Anniversary my Love."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 21st May 2017

"As I sit here and whisper
        " I Love You "
I believe somehow, somewhere
         You can hear me.

Missing someone is your heart's
way of reminding you how very
much you love them."

"Butch, I remember the first day with out you here...
And I have never been the same.

Love and miss you more and more everyday
Always in my heart ~ Forever on my mind."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 9th May 2017

"No one is ever truly alone...
The ones we love and have lost
echo always in our thoughts, our words and our hearts.
And what they did and who they were become apart of all that we are
and all that we will be forever and ever.

Butch, I close my eye and speak to you in a thousand silent ways.
I love you and miss you with all my heart."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 2nd May 2017

"Butch,
My mind still talks to you and
even though my soul knows you are at peace,
my heart still looks for you everyday."

"I am the rememberer, the one left behind to keep your memory alive in the hearts and minds of all those who love and cherish you.
I am the one left to preserve all the beautiful memories you left behind.
Yes I am the rememberer and I will forever be...

I still feel the pain and loss as much today as the day I lost you.

In memory and celebration of Butch, who made this word a
bright and beautiful place. I will love you ~ Forever and ever.

"Another Easter without you and I miss you so much. Every holiday seems to get harder to face without you here. We always had the best holidays and you would always make them so much fun. I miss everything about our life together and if I had one wish you would be with us today and every other day. You are my heart and I will forever feel cheated that we didn't get to spend the rest of our lives together. Someone ask me how long they should wait before they took their wedding ring off and I thought, why would you ever want to. My wedding ring is a symbol of the life we shared together and I will never take it off. It means the same to me now as it did the day you put it on my finger and that is where it will always stay. I love you and miss you with all my heart and I am so thankful for all the beautiful memories you left me with. Always on my mind and forever in my heart."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 15th April 2017

"Today, I heard someone whisper your name,
but when I turned around, I was all alone.
Then I realized it was my heart telling me how much
                   I love you and miss you.

               I am not a widow, I am your wife.
I will never be a widow, I will forever be your wife."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 13th April 2017

"I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with you...
And then I realized you spent the rest of your life with me.
I feel blessed because you loved me until the day you went away,
And will keep loving me, as I will keep loving you ~ Forever and ever."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 5th April 2017

"I look and out of the corner of my eye and for a moment
I think it is you I see
In the silence of that moment
I hear you call my name
I close my eyes and for a moment
I can feel you again beside me
Then my heart realizes that it can not be
And for a moment the grief overwhelms me
My soul longs for what use to be
When you were still here beside me
Death has taken you, but neither time nor death
Can ever take away our love and memories."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 2nd April 2017

"I wanted to walk through life together
Leaning on each other so neither one of us would fall
But one of us did fall and my world crumbled and fell apart
I miss you everyday of my life. My world will never ever be the same.

I may not be able to hold your hand in my hand
But I will always hold your heart in my heart.

I love you..."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 31st March 2017

We never stopped holding hands.
We never stopped kissing.
We never stopped dancing.
And we never stopped loving each other.

I love you for eternity,"

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 22nd March 2017

"Butch,

Is it wrong to cry now that
You're in Heaven...
When on earth you
Brought me such joy.

Is it wrong for me to cry
And then smile when a
Sweet memory of you comes to mind.

Is it wrong to wish you back
When all your pain is over and
Heaven holds you safe.

Is it wrong to tell you that
I love you and miss you every day.

I love you, Sherry"

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 17th March 2017

"I just found a memory in the corner of my mind
I just saw a picture, it flashed before my eyes
Of dreams we shared together and a future we once had
I just wiped a teardrop that was falling from my eye
Followed by another, as I began to cry
I gazed to Heaven, That Heaven up so high
I see a light that shines for me, My Angel in the sky.

I love you and miss you with all my heart ~ Forever and ever"

Every day without you, since you had to go
Is like summer without sunshine and Christmas without snow
I wish that I could talk to you, there is so much I would say
Life has changed so very much since you went away
I miss your smile and your touch, you are forever in my heart
And with every Christmas memory I feel you close to me
And though you're far from sight I'll search for you among the stars
That shine this Christmas night.

I don't need an Angel on top of my Christmas tree,
I already have one in Heaven watching over me."

"Missing you at Christmas...
There's a place within my heart
A place where all my memories are safely tucked away
It is the perfect place for me to go
For words could never explain how very much I miss you
And now that Christmas is here again
It's where the sweetest memories of you are found
Missing you more than you could ever know
Today, tomorrow and forever.

Most people want presents under their Christmas tree.
My wish is different...
I wish that you were here with me.   I love you with all my heart."

"Butch,
Missing you today and everyday of my life.

Never Forgotten...
You'll never be forgotten, that simply cannot be.
As long as I am living I'll carry you with me.
Safely tucked within my heart, your light will always shine.
A glowing ember never stilled throughout the end of time.
No matter what the future brings or what may lie ahead,
I know that you will walk with me along the path I tread.
So rest my angel, be at peace and let your soul fly free.
One day I'll join your glorious flight for all eternity.

I love you and today I am remembering all the wonderful Thanksgivings we have shared. You are forever in my heart."
