"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."

"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."

"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."

"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

But I will always hold your heart in my heart.

I love you..."

"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"

"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.

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.

My wish is different...
I wish that you were here with me.   I love you with all my heart."

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."

"I would like to write a song, a sweet and simple song
And if I do it right, it's the only one I'd sing
Because it would bring me everything I need
A song that I could sing you back to me
A miracle of page and pen
You would hear it and be here again
And always and forever there would be
A song that I could sing you back to me...

Sherry loves Butch ~ Forever and ever"

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 5th September 2016

"I didn't know that day would be our last
Or I would have to say goodbye so fast
I'm so numb, I can't feel anymore
Praying you will just walk through that door
And tell me I was only dreaming, and that your not really gone
In a world where heroes come and go
God just took the only one I know
So I'll hold you as close as I can
Longing for the day, when I see your face again
But until then...
God must have needed another angel around the throne tonight
Your love lives on inside of me and I will hold on tight
It's not my place to question, only God knows why
I'm just jealous of the angles around the throne tonight.

I love you ~ forever and ever."

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 3rd September 2016

"Missing you more and more everyday...I know there will never ever be another you...My love forever and ever."
