"I still miss you, terribly.  Life just isn't life, without you.
I wish you were here.  I always will."

"Jan, I wish you were here.  Some days, i pretend you're just out somewhere, at work, away, shopping, and you'll be back soon.  But, you're not.  I get through the Holidays, mostly by pretending they're not.  And, i think its beginning to sink in.  You're gone.  I won't ever see you again.  Hold your hand.  Kiss your cheek. Smile, and laugh with you.  All of our little in jokes, stories, our history.  I'm less than half what i was.  But, life is still going on, I guess I will too.  The worlds not as much fun, but, its still there, and i still have to deal with it.  I miss you, love.  I wish you were here, so I could tell you how much. Sleep well my dear."
