It was the most surprising, humbling and greatest joy of my life to have found you in 2008. You scooped me up, my darling soulmate, and I was thankfully able to return the love and kindness you showed me during those, my darkest days. In the decade to come, I would learn -- for the first time in my life -- to care for someone else more than I cared for myself. You were the closest thing I will ever have to a father ... a best friend, a soulmate. I should have done more. There is not a day that passes that I don't think of you. My breath catches in my chest at the thought of you. Daily. You are the inspiration and beating heart of my life. You are the proof of the inequity of the universe. No one so kind should ever have been taken from us. We love you, Donny. You changed our lives. We will never be the same. For the rest of my days, I will live less fearful of all that lies ahead. Thank you for taking care of me, even after your passing. Thank you for Cindy, who has worked so hard to see that your final wishes were carried out. I love her and only wish she loved me as you did. It's been over two months, and I still marvel that I am here on this world without you. I do not wish to be most days. I will see you soon, my love. We have more adventures yet. I love you and will think of you till the day I die. Thank you for everything you have taught me about life and love, about priorities and responsibility, about humility and self-sacrifice. I would do it all again, Dad. That's what you've always been to me. I love you more than I love this life. And I will see you soon.
