My Special Love

It has been five years since I kissed you goodbye, but the love we shared continues to give me strength to move forward.

Yours was the shoulder I leaned on, the hand I held, your eyes sent the message that never grows old. The memory of your smile still warms my heart. You were everything that was special to me. I miss you with all my heart.

You will always be my “Special Love!”

Your loving wife, Donna
