2011-06-15 15:09:28I just can't believe you left me. I am trying to deal with this, but it is really hard. You took me totally by surprise. Nevertheless, you meant a lot to me and my children. You will always hold a special place in my heart. I have great memories of you. I can still hear you speaking and singing with me. My friends and family that met you can really feel my pain. You are a warm and loving, and protecting man. Love Always...
