My Bill,

Honey,
I am so fortunate to have had your precious love for the last five years. We had made plans to spend the rest of our lives together. It never mattered to us where we were or what ar were doing., as long as we were together. We are and forever will be soul mates.
Jesus brought us together and our love for each other grows deeper with each day.
I am so proud of you...how strong you remained through your illness.
Thank you for trying so hard to stay with me. Our love is forever and I will join you as soon as I can.
We said our marriage vows and God honored them. Jesus was proud of our love and commitment to each other. We not only had an eternal love for each other...we really liked each other.
I am so grateful that God answered my prayer and allowed me the privilege to hold you and show you my love when you were living your final moments in this world.
OUR LOVE WAS A RARE GIFT FROM OUR LORD....AND IT IS AN ETERNAL LOVE
Bill., I miss you more than I can handle and not having you with me hurts my entire being.
Bill., please hold me...hear me...stay as close to me as you can. MY LOVE AND RESPECT FOR YOU ARE FOREVER...EVERLASTING.
We both knew that Jesus brought us together and not even your death can alter our love.
I have no idea how to live the next moment without you...the HURT is so consuming. So you and Jesus must hold me up until I can be with you again.
I know you are still close to me...you can hear me and touch me. NOW YOU TRULY KNOW HOW VERY MUCH I LOVE YOU BECAUSE YOU CAN LOOK INTO MY HEART.
Every day I will be blessed from knowing you and sharing the last five years of my life with you.
Please ask Jesus to bring me to be with you soon because we are truly one and will not really live until I am holding you again.

Honey...I will see you soon and you are and will remain my soul mate forever.

With all my love...Carolyn ... Your Meg
