It's so hard to believe that one year ago today you slipped through my arms and made your journey to the other side. I wonder why the reality that you will not be coming back is still so surreal. I thought that maybe by now I could think of you without tears burning my eyes. I still think that when I walk through the door you will be there or when I need help with something, all I have to do is call your name and when I go to bed at night you will be there right beside me as you always have been. I still reach over at night to put my arms around you, but you are not there. Will I ever get used to this, probably not, will I ever forget all that you were?NEVER. So with tears in my eyes and an ache in my heart know that not only today but ever day you are in my thoughts and my love for you is still as strong as it was then. I know you loved me and still do as I will always and forever love you......always, sparky

It's so hard to believe that it has almost been a year since you left us. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and feel that emptiness in my heart. Nobody could have ever prepared me for this, or any one, how we would feel without you, sometimes it is just so surreal. At times I just can't find the words to express how much I miss you, but I think you know. I will forever be yours and forever love you.

I miss you so much, I can't believe it's been almost a year. It feels like just yesterday, when you where last here. Olivia is so big I wish you could hold her. Xoxo

Wishing my darling husband a Happy Birthday
AJ Anderson 9/27/55 - 3/17/12
Dear Lord:
If roses grow in heaven
please pick a bunch for me
Place them in AJ's arms
and tell him they're from me
Tell him I love him and miss him,
and when he turns to smile,
Place a kiss on his cheek and hold him for a while.
Because remembering him is easy
I do it every day
But there is an ache within my heart
That will never go away.

I love you and miss you so very much my darling
Happy Birthday, always

My darling AJ, It's been 5 months and I am still waiting to wake up from this dream but I am realizing that it's not gonna happen. I miss you more and more each day and at times find myself talking to you just to find that your not here. You are always in my thoughts. Your little sister(Ruthann) is graduating from Nursing school today, I know how proud you would be of her but I am sure she knows you will be there looking at her and feeling very proud and sending her your love. Not a night goes by that I don't say good night to you as we had always promised and we always look for that bright star of yours to make sure you are still there. There have been a lot more times when listening to music that one song or another comes on that reminds me of us, sometimes bringing a smile to my face and sometimes tears to my eyes. I am as always missing you with all my heart. With all my love, always and forever, Sparky.....
