It’s hard to believe your no longer here. Words cannot describe how this makes me feel… You’ve passed on to the other side, though I wish you could still be here with me… You were a remarkable man, Dependable, loving and caring… You were the centre of my world. You were one in a million to me… You made me laugh, you made me smile, you were my companion and dear friend… You were a wonderful husband from beginning to end. Forever will you live on in my heart and mind. Forever will you live in my thoughts and never die. With love always, I remember you with fond memories, I think of you… I’m grateful for the times we had together, I’ll cherish my memories of you forever
