This month marks 4 years since you left. I pray every day and miss you always! Tomorrow I turn 38 and I wish so much you were still here to enjoy a glass of wine with me in person, because I've been waiting to tell you a piece of news, but I wanted to be sure. In your letter you said to wait for that next wonderful husband and that you knew he was out there just waiting to find me. So, here it goes I met someone. He is nice and treats me well, and I know that you would want that for me. He also comes with a child, and somehow I feel like my prayers for a child were answered. I lost hope for having kids in the last few years, but maybe the blessing is in raising a child and not necessarily having one of my own.
I will always miss you!

I miss you, so very much! You extended grace to me in every circumstance and I always knew that I was safe with you. I wish Heaven had a landline, so I could hear your voice just one more time. I love you to the stars and back, Gussy! Always have. Always will.

Today, I struggle. I've been teary-eyed for a few days now. I miss you so much! Honestly, I look forward to dying because I get to see you again. Everyday I put a smile on my face and go about my day acting right, because if I don't I'm "not over you". I wish so much that people around me could realize you never get over this kind of thing. I live as a widow every day, and some days I have no fight left. Some days I have to screw on a smile and seem great, but inside I cry and I miss you. I pray, struggle, sleep and then I wake up every day to do the same thing. It feels like the Groundhog Day over and over and over again. Nothing I accomplish means anything because you're not here to share it with. I'll be ok, because I don't have a choice but to be, but I miss you and I always will.

I miss you, sometimes more than other times. I'm trying to make peace with my new life, but I think of you often and wonder how we would have been. A week from today is our anniversary- it would have been 7 years...and you've been gone 2.5. If anyone would have told me then that we would never make it to 7, I would have never believed it. I have faith that God has a plan, so I will wait for someone to walk into my life, and give me some peace. It would be nice to know the Gus I thought you were existed some place.

Annie got married today. I wish so much you could have been here, but in every step I felt your presence and I know that you will watch over us. I attached a pic here for you to see it. I love you more!

I can't believe it's been two years! I miss you as much today as ever. Life is very different for me now. I speak on Suicide and minister in prisons...your death changed everything, sweetheart.
I am graduating with my Masters in May and oh how I wish you were there to see all that. I also went on to a doctoral program, which I start this summer. Everything I do, I wish you got to see. You were my everything.

P.S. I loved you more.
