    Darling,

    I’m slowly adjusting to life without you, I feel so lost.  It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.  I thank God that He bought you into my life for 54 years.  So along with the tears, there are smiles just remembering you and the sweet and funny things you did.  I could’ve not asked for a better husband. The children couldn’t ask for a better father.  If success were measured by how much one was loved, you were a giant!
                                           I will loveyou forever,  “Cindy”
