Dee - When I hear a song you loved, or see an animal you said was cute (which is every animal in existence), my urge will be to cry, but I’ll try and smile with the thoughts of you. For I am loving you now just as I always have. You were so good to me. I’ll forever keep a mental scrapbook of our life together, a collection of memories and the thousands of things I loved about you. I’ll turn to these mental pages frequently, enabling me to indulge the love I feel for you. We cannot add memories now, but I’ll always treasure the ones you gave me. Your love made me complete. The need for me was always simple - just all of your love for all of my life. The perpetual and toughest thing I’ve ever faced – missing you. Love, Pat
