Hey hubby,
Tomi I miss you and love you so much. I’m so glad we choose each other. I’m glad I became your wife. That really made each other happy. I will miss that one question I always ask you “ tomi what do you know? And you always answer “ that I love you”. You was always my protector. Please continue to protect me from heaven. ❤️ I love you. I see you on the other side. I’m proud to say that you are my husband. And you was a fighter.

I love you baby.
Your wife,
Samantha St.Upery Touchet.
