    I remember your last words… ” love you so much, ” I wish I knew if you heard me say it back…” I still feel i can’t move on. We fell down in tears making eachother laugh. You made me so happy and could always make me smile. I was comming… You and God know what we had. Ill be seeing you, and be ready, I’m gonna have to smack you around a little before I grab on to you & never let go
