Oh my sweet friend Kim. My heart goes out to you. I know you will miss him terribly but remember he's in a better place. When Dad passed away I used to get so mad when people would tell me that cause I was mad dammit and I wanted him back, but.....in my heart I knew he was dancing around the throne of God, so probably, if I'm being honest I was a little jealous. Well probably a lot jealous that Jesus had him and I didn't anymore. Its been almost 2 years and I still think of him at least 50 times a day. You've had the best times with your Bill, wow 17 years. Time flies. Know that he see's you and doesn't want you to be sad. I love you and am sending huge virtual hugs from Texas! Fly high Bill Gordon and thanks for loving my friend completely!
