I think of you always; how you missed out on life; you are still my best friend. I tried to live it for both of us. Life has had its ups and downs and I am thankful for each day that I'm here. I still cannot comfort your mother as she still grieves for your loss. Your father has joined you and lays next to you. We will meet again.
