We were together longer than some people are married. You taught me how to relax and have fun, and not to be so serious all the time. I remember all the fun times we had and the crazy things we did. Sometimes we'd laugh so hard we'd cry. I'm going to miss your laughter, your smile and your hugs. When you left this earth, a part of me went with you. We'll be together again someday - for eternity. Until then, may the Angels and those who preceded you, watch over and comfort you. Love and miss you
