  • I’m not sure how to navigate this life without you, but I you will guide me from Heaven. The memories will remind me of the bond we have, and 46 years of time spent laughing, crying, listening to music, leaning on each other, marriages, births, losses, and joyful times. You will be missed everyday for the rest of my life. Save me a spot up there! Until we meet again….

  • In your life you meet a lot of people. Most are just acquaintances but there are those rare occasions you meet someone that you call a friend. You were as good a friend and person as anyone could ask for. You were there for me during the lowest point of my life and I never forgot it. You will be greatly missed and the memories I have of our times together will always be cherished.
