  1. Well I cooked Thanksgiving dinner for the first time. Well not by myself, but with the help of our friends and family. I so miss you. All I want right now is for a hug from you. You just to hold me close. I miss your warmth. I’m trying so hard to hold it together, but some days it is real work.
    Love you always, wish I was with you.

  2. John,
    I can’t believe the news I heard yesterday. Cheril died. She was supposed to be getting her hair cut with me but instead she was dead at home alone. I can’t believe this. I so wish you were here to help me cope with this. Although we lost touch, I still considered her a great friend. I can’t believe both of you are gone now. I hope that you are together and she is giving you a hard time.
    I love and miss you so much.
    Love always,

  3. Honey,

    much that you were here. They are growing up so fast.
    Love you always.
    Your honey bunny.
