In Memory

It's hard to believe it's been a year since God took you home. And I know that you are with me and that I'm not alone. I think of our life and know we were made to be together. At first I was so lost without you, and could only think of all I missed. I miss so much, your smile, your touch. I thank you now for the things you taught me, about the house and the car that I didn't want to learn. And the strength you encouraged me to have when things went wrong. I also thank you for leaving me with two replicas of yourself in your daughter and son. The memories we made as a family now help to sustain us. You were with me for more than half of my life. You were a good husband and you were my life. You'll always be in my heart and you'll always be with me. And I know you're in a better place and even though I can't see your face I know you're smiling down on me...saying everything's okay. Love always and forever, Your wife Mary Daddy, you'll always be in our hearts and in our minds. We thank you for the strength and love you gave us. We love and miss you. Nichelle and Jamaal A year has come and gone since God took you home to rest. We miss you so much and are thankful we were blessed...for you were the best...son, brother, uncle and friend. Love Always, Mom, TJ, Blanche, Carl, Nadia, Aaron, Michael, San, David and Margaret
