In Loving Memory of

Dear Dennis,

It's been a little over two years since you died. You were sick for so long, and I knew your suffering had to end. The brain tumor was so cruel to you at the end. But when I finally told you that it was ok, you could go see the angels now, you opened your eyes after being in a coma for two whole days. A single tear slid down your face, and you stopped breathing. Your pain and suffering were over. But mine was just beginning!

I miss you so much! It doesn't seem like this is ever going to get easier. I am so lonely. You were to young to die at 44, and I was too young to lose you at 41! Dennis, when we met, you saved my life. You were aware of all of the hardships I had been through, but you loved me anyways. You turned me into a kind and loving person. We had a great life together which produced three beautiful kids. But 24 years together was not long enough,and then life was cruel to me again, and it took you away from me.

I don't know how I can go on, or why? I am so lonely, and most of our good friends have turned away from me. Couples don't like to do things with single people. My days are filled with thoughts of you. You were my best friend, my confidante, my everything. I go to work, come home, go to bed, and repeat the day over and over. I only have bad dreams about you. Could you please send some sweet dreams about the good times that we have had? Could you please help me to learn to be happy again? I tried therapy for one year and it helped slightly. Send me some signs so I can know that you are watching over me. You were such a wonderful person on this earth, and I cannot believe that God took you away. He should have taken me instead of you. You were the better person. But I am trying, really trying. I just need a little reassurance that you are out there watching over me.

I will love you always, Dennis. I miss your sweet smile, your warm hugs, and you great sense of humor. I even miss your snoring! I will never forget you, and I will be with you again someday!

Jodi, Steven and Kelly miss you tremendously! They are all still grieving in their own ways. You were a special dad to them, and no one can replace you.
