Dear Sweet Love,

It has been 14 months today since you left your love ones to enter your Heavenly home where there is no more pain or suffering, only JOY, HAPPINESS, PEACE and LOVE. As I said each and every time I write to you, I miss you so very much and wish you were here with me, I know you are here in spirit and there are times I feel your presence in a room or a brush of my hair when there is no wind blowing,I know it is you still here with me keeping an eye on me and keeping me safe. Enjoy your day and as always remember I will be loving you always and forever.

Your Loving Wife,

Dear Sweet Love,

Just sitting here watching a Christmas movie and thinking about all the times we would sit in the den watching movies together and think about all the times we had spent together and our love for one another that no one could ever end, because we loved each other more than life it self. The holidays will be sad again this year without you and Foxy girl here with me, but with God's love and grace I will make it through another year. Spent Thanksgiving with Elaine and Bill, but it was not the same without you to celebrate with me. Keep smiling down on me because I will be smiling up to you each and everyday as I have promised you I would. Until we see each other again, I will be loving you always.

Love Always and Forever!!

Dear Sweet Love,

Happy Thanksgiving (a day late). I am at Elaine and Bill's for Thanksgiving and was unable to get on line yesterday. It sure is not the same without you here to share in the hoildays with me. Please continue to keep an eye on me and remember I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL. I am sending you a smile today and everyday.
Until we meet again, I will be loving you always.

Love Always and Forever!!

Dear Sweet Love,

It has been one year today since you left your loved ones and entered your Heavenly Home with our Lord and Savior. Oh, what a sight that has to be, to be in the place where there is no more pain, suffering or sorrow, just HAPPINESS, JOY, LOVE and PEACE. It is still so hard to believe you are no longer here with your family and love ones who love and miss you SO VERY MUCH. I miss all the hugs, smiles (you would give to me when I would walk into the room), kisses, your voice, phone calls (just to say how's your day going) and especially all the I LOVE YOU "TOOTS". I would love to hear your voice and see that smiling face of yours, but until that day comes, I will just hold on to ALL the wonderful memories I have of you and all the good times. Until I see your smiling face again, remember I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART, and NO ONE will ever take your place in my heart or in my life for that matter. I would love to see you and Foxy Girl running around with each other, I miss her so much, but I guess God thought you needed her more than I did. Sweet Love, fly higher and higher with the Angels today and enjoy your new home with all the wonderful sights you are getting to see that the rest of us can only hope to see one of these days. Please continue to keep an eye on me and keep me safe. I will visit your grave today and release a balloon as I have on the 30th of each month for the past year, and wish I could see you and say I LOVE YOU, DEARLY. Until I see you again (as that is God's promise for each of us) I Love and Miss You SO VERY MUCH.

Love Always and Forever!!!

Dear Sweet Love,

It has been eleven months today since you entered your new home in Heaven. Just to say I Love You and I Miss You is an understatement of how I really feel inside (which is empty without you here with me in person). This house is SO empty without you and Foxy Girl. As always, I go through each and everyday wanting you here with me and wishing I could see your smiling face, kiss you and hold you so tight and never let you go. The past eleven months have gone by so slowly for me, it seems like a really bad dream and that I will wake up and you will be here with me, but then I realize that is not going to happen not until our Lord and Savior calls me to my Heavenly Home and then I will get to see you again, so until that day comes, I WILL BE LOVING YOU WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL!! Please continue to keep an eye on me and keep me safe. I will be looking toward the Heavens and smiling daily, just to let you know I LOVE YOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER!!!

Your Loving Wife,

Dear Sweet Love,

Today is my birthday and I will miss hearing you tell me Happy Birthday and I Love You Toots!! I will go on with my day as I have been doing for the past 10 months without you here with me. Elaine and Bill came by and took me to Red Lobster to eat for my birthday, wish you could had been here with me to celebrate. I visited you grave today after Elaine and Bill bought me home. It is still so hard to believe that you are longer here with me in person, but you will ALWAYS be with me in my Heart and on my Mind each and everyday. As always, please continue to keep an eye on me and keep me safe as I go on without you. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER!!!

Dear Sweet Love,

I MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH, IT IS SO UN BEARABLE WITHOUT YOU HERE WITH ME EACH AND EVERYDAY!!!! It has been ten months today since our Lord and Savior called you to your Heavenly Home. I continue to go thru out my days and go thru the motions of daily tasks but there are some days I just want to give up, but I know I have to keep going on and wait for the Lord to call me home to be with you and Foxy girl. Oh, what a wonderful day that will be for me to get to see you and Foxy and the rest of my family and friends that have gone on before me. It's Labor Day week end and I plan on going to Elaine and Bill's for the week end. I wish you were going with me to enjoy so family time with them, but I know that is impossible, but you will be in my heart and on my mind as always. Please continue to keep an eye on me and keep me safe. I LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH, SO UNTIL ME MEET AGAIN, I WILL BE LOVING YOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER!!!!!

Dear Sweet Love,

It has been nine months today since you left your earthly home and entered into your new Heavenly Home with you Lord and Savior. As I have said before, I Miss You More and More each and everyday, as the days come along they seems longer and longer to me without you here with me in person. This house is so empty now without you and Foxy Girl here with me. It has been three weeks today without Foxy Girl, I sure do miss her a lot too. At least when she was here, I had someone to come home to each and everyday and it was such a Great Pleasure to me for her to be waiting at the door for me when I would come home (and look at me as to say, I missed you mama, so glad you at home). I have no idea how I make it through each day without you here by my side or without Foxy Girl. My world is SO empty now and I just have to keep going on without you and Foxy. To say I Love You just doesn't seem like enough anymore, I wish I could say those words to you in person and have you hold me so tight and never let my go. Please continue to keep an eye on me and take good care of Foxy Girl for me. Until I meet you and Foxy again, I Will Be Loving You Both Always and Forever!!!

Dear Sweet, Sweet Love,

It is with a truly broken heart and an empty soul that I write to you today. Our Little Foxy Girl is now in Heaven with you, she passed away this morning in my arms at 4:40 AM. Her vet told me in January that she had early stages of Renal Failure, I ask her how much time I had left with Foxy, and she said it could be 3 weeks, 3 months, there was no way of knowing for sure, well I at least had her for six months to give her ALL THE HUGS AND LOVE I could and believe me I did just that and I am truly Thankful for the time I did have with her till the end.
She has been a sick little girl for the past few weeks. I went to Florida to visit Linda and Ray and while I was there she got to where she wasn't her self and had trouble walking. Linda and I took her to the Banfield Clinic in Florida on June 25th and then again on June 26th, she was dehydrated, so on these two days, they gave her an IV drip to get some fluids in her. Foxy just wasn't drinking water like she should so as to flush out her kidneys nor was she eating. I had tried everything I could for her. When I got back to Roanoke, I took her to her regular Vet at Banfield on June 29th, and once again they gave her an IV drip to try and get her fluid levels up. I brought Foxy home and she seems to be doing okay, took her back to the vet on July 2nd for a follow-up visit, she had gained one pound (which was a good sign) and once again she seem to be feeling better. This past week-end I just could not get her to eat or drink anything, so I was feeding her and giving her water as best I could. The past Sunday (June 30th), Foxy vomited everything I feed her plus her water. I gave her a bath on Sunday, and she just laid in the tub, she really didn't care what I was doing (you know how much she didn't like to get a bath).
Foxy had an appointment this morning at 9:00, and I just knew that Dr. Houck would ask me if I wanted to put her to sleep, and that is one thing you and I talked about, how hard it would be to do that when the day came, so I prayed all night and also had family members and friends praying for me that God would just take her in her sleep, but she nor I slept at all. I held her in my arms from 8:00 PM last night until she took her final breath at 4:40 AM. She would look up at me as if to say (what's wrong mama), and I told her it was okay for her to go on and be with you, mama and Steven, that I would be okay (but that will truly take a long time). I also promised Foxy that I would not get another pet (it just hurts TOO MUCH to lose them). So my Sweet Love, our Little Foxy Girl is now in Heaven with you, mama and her Uncle Steven.
I took Foxy to Oakey's this morning and had her cremated, as that was your wish, and she will be buried with me when my times come to join the both of you (which was a wish of your's too). Foxy is sitting on the kitchen table as I write this letter to you. I would love to have seen the look on your face as you greeted Foxy Girl into Heaven. I now have another Angel to watch over me daily as I go on without our Foxy Girl. Please keep an eye on my and take good care of Foxy (which I know that you will). Until I meet you and Foxy Girl again, I Will Be Loving You Both Always and Forever!!!

Your Loving Wife,
"Toots"
