Honey, I thought about you yesterday and today, I cried, the tears just came. I am trying hard My Love to be strong, but the sudden loss of you has left a big gaping oozing hole inside my heart and very soul. I am not sure how I can move on, but then again in some aspects, I really don't want to. I fear that if I let this pain slowly go, so too will your memory, but then, no. I know you will always be a part of me for as long as I live and breathe here on this Earth. Your love, your spirit has imprinted itself on every fiber of my being. God has claimed you, but your spirit seems to live on here with me. I swear there are times when I can smell your cologne, hear you whisper in my ear when I have doubts, and I can almost feel you gently pushing me onward on those days when I feel like I can't go on alone. I love you, I loved you then, I love you now, and perhaps I always will.

My husband, my friend, my FOREVER LOVE. I remember everything that happened to us over the beautiful 22 years I was blessed to have shared with you. Always had a joke to make me smile, no matter how lame it may be. You always were there when I needed a shoulder when this crazy old world would bring me down, and respected my need at times to just be closed off and alone with myself. Always patient, always gentle, always so full of life right to the bitter end. You had a love for your country like that I had never known and you taught me so much Love, you taught me how to take the lumps of life and brush them off but to learn a lesson from them so as not make the same mistakes again. You showed me the beauty I held with in and you brought that out to the surface, you put the light you marveled at into my eyes when I smiled. Even in the bad times, you always held my hand and my heart. I remember the pride you showed on your face when our Daughter was born, "Daddy's little Alien" that was the nick name you gave her because when our Nikki was a newborn, her eyes were so dark blue that they were nearly black and almond shaped. Then when I had Austin, you missed his arrival, but when you came home to us, you loved on that boy like he was the best thing in the world. As he grew and you watched him, walking around silently studying things, you called him The Little Professor. Then we had our last boy, and you didn't want him to be named after you completely, so I named him Johnathan, you just wanted him to be called John. I remember when you thought you were alone with him when he was just four days old, you spoke with him and told him that you were proud of him and his brother and sister and told him that when he grew he had to look after his mom when daddy was working. You called him your little side-kick. Though each child had their own unique nick names from you, one thing was always blatantly clear you loved your children with ever fiber of your being. Just as you loved me, My Love. You may be resting now in the arms of Angels in Heaven, but know this My Love, I will keep your memories tucked safe inside my heart and soul, and I will cherish the time we had together as precious memories no one can steal. Rest peacefully My Love, and know I will be with you soon, may take a while but I will be with you once again! Just protect us and watch us from Heaven. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS MY SWEET MARINE!
