Donnie…

We are proud of your accomplishments and sacrifices in a life that became a struggle. Our hearts ache as we go on without you! We cherish the good you left behind, and forgive all else. Our comfort comes from knowing you are now at peace, and that we will see you again! Rest easy...

I miss the way your breathing smelled when my head was on your chest.
I miss the feel of my hand in yours, so strong and firm.
I miss the way your foot would seek out mine under the blanket.
I miss the sound of your voice and your laugh - if I concentrate, I can still hear that beautiful baritone...
I miss the way you'd kiss my forehead and pat my bottom when you'd pass by me in the kitchen.
I miss the way you'd always open the door for a lady - especially me, your lady.
I miss the way you'd love our daughter, making her feel like the center of your world.
I miss the way you'd brag on your other two babies,loving and admiring them more than they could know.
I miss listening to our favorite songs together...singing along and appreciating the soundtrack of our memories.
I miss feeling my chest pressed against your back as you so expertly navigated your motorcycle through the city streets, making me feel as one with you, kept safe like I was your precious cargo, and so carefree.
There's so much more to say about what I miss - I could go on for the rest of my life telling you about it all...I know I'll go on the rest of my life feeling it all.

I just miss you. But I know, as I see the end of the first year without you, that the beginning of the second brings me that much closer to being with you again.

Until then, I'll go on loving you.

May 5, 2002. Our first date. The beginning of us. What a ride it was...I think of you today, full of memories and love. I miss you so much. Isabella misses you, too. I wish you were here to see her grow. We love you.

Dear Daddy, I miss you so much! It's kind of hard to live without you. My friends are blessing me though.I love you to the moon and back. I wish you were with me for your birthday. I'm excited to visit you in the morning! Love, your Stink Stink aka Isabella :-)

It's your birthday, babe, and my heart hurts that you aren't here to celebrate it with us. I sit here, remembering your birthday last year. We were at Lopez with the kids...remember? What a good night that was. Lopez holds lots of good memories for us over the years, doesn't it. The last time I was there, it was for Krysten's birthday. They sat us at the same exact table as where we sat for your birthday. I was the only one who was there alone...it was almost like that was you, somehow reminding me and showing me that you were with me...

The kids & I are going to breakfast in the morning, and then we'll come visit you...and our hearts will continue to ache.

Happy birthday in heaven, my beloved. I miss you.

Nine Years...

2/18/15 - our 9th anniversary. Never did I think it would be this way. Divorce? Maybe...hoped not, but it was considered. This? Never. I miss you and I am sometimes angry for things that happened during our time together. If there's anything I've learned, it's that life is way bigger than us....sometimes, we don't have the force to rock the boat even a little bit...it's going to do what is planned for it to do. Other times...we have way more control over it than we realize, and through our inadvertent, seemingly insignificant actions, we are able to change the course completely. Sometimes, we're even able to tip that boat right on over. That's how I have been feeling these last few months without you....the boat is tipped over and I'm barely treading water. But - I'm learning to swim again. I'm holding on to the memories of our love...the good times and the tender moments and the real love that was and always will be there. I am thankful every day for it. I love you. I miss you. Happy anniversary in Heaven, baby. Until we meet again.

Baby, there are moments when I miss you so much I can't stand it. Tonight is one of them. I am doing the best I can, going on without you...keeping your memory alive...but I feel incomplete. Even when you and I were apart, you were still here - I could hear your voice anytime I wanted. I could get a hug or a word of encouragement...oh, what I would give just to hear your voice, telling me how you love me so. I miss you, my friend...I miss you desperately.

I'm moving forward, in your name...in your memory...for all I could and did do for you, and for all I couldn't...for all the ways I was everything you needed, and for all the ways I wasn't. Your truth is in my heart - I know that you know this. Nothing in life severed our connection...death won't do it either. I feel you and know you are with us, every single day. Rest in your peace...knowing that you will never, ever be forgotten. We had a conversation once...you asked me to help your kids know the real you - not just the you who suffered the wounded soul - but the real, deep down wonderful you. I'm doing that, the best I can. They love you. I love you. Rest easy, baby.
