Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow, but remember me in every tomorrow. Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles, I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

Although my leaving causes pain and grief, my going has eased my hurt, and given me relief.

So dry your eyes and remember me, not as I am now, but as I used to be. Because, I will remember you all, and look on with a smile. Understand in your hearts, I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

As long as I have the love of each of you, I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.

honey u made my life worth living and i am so proud to have shared 8 of the best years of my life with u. i am so sorry u had to suffer so long before u left and i thank u for letting me know before i had to remember u that way. i will always hold u in my memory as the beautiful and too humble, funny , enough intellect for ten people, chivalrous, selfless, caring,kind, loving,loyal etc etc best friend i could've hoped for. i may not be your wife on paper but ur name on my body is as permanent as my love is now, and always has been. i told u on our second date u were necessary to me for lack of a better way to describe how i needed u in my heart & in my life. i still feel the same. i told u so many times how i was sooo lucky. in ur absence i struggle with feeling unlucky. i have to just remind myself that not many people could live in eachothers head,-- finish one anothers thought/sentences or share comitted love that we both were sure of from the 2nd date. we struggled from the get go with health issues but none of that changed how we felt. i love u more than myself even in death and there os no second in any day that exists without thoughts of u. our love is infinite and travels beyond confines of space and time. but u already knew that. see u soon babe i promise.
