It has been 5 years ago today that we last saw each other and sat on the bench by the pool, and talked about the last 25 years, and how the next decade would be our very best. My heart will always ache for you and the special love we had for so long. Nothing could have ever come between us but one's passing. I love you so very much, and always will. You are truly a love and a loss like no other.

I long to see you again in heaven. I am sure my many questions will be answered then.

I listened to your voice again this morning on a ski video. It was so sweet like so many things about you. I miss you and LOVE YOU with all my heart and soul so very much, and always will. My heart aches every day for you.

Your Adoring Husband.

My Darling Charissa,

Today would be 29 years together here on Earth. What a wonderful 25 years we had. I know and comfort in that you are in Heaven now doing God's work and celebrating with my Mom, Father, Sister, your brother and father and other loved ones. I miss you and love you so very much.

Your Soul Mate.

Hello Carissa from Danbridge. I have questioned God ever since. We had one of the closest most wonderful marriages I have ever seen and all my friends felt the same. Mountain Harbor Inn was her favorite place, so I go there on her birthday. that is not the first message in a bottle.

I would rather not use this guestbook to communicate. If you want to contact me, you can go down a few entries and click on contact me.

I am happy to share with you. I hope you are blessed with love. It is truly a wonderful thing to have.
