“On August 12 2019, I lost my best friend, my husband, the best part of me and my whole life. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear. I held you in my arms for a little while, but will hold you in my heart forever. Now all I have are years of wonderful memories and your pictures in a frame. I think of you with love every day and those memories are my keepsakes that warm my heart.”
