Tim, I think of you every day. I cry for you every single day of a broken heart. I miss talking to you every morning. Its been almost a year since youve left me and I still cant get over the fact that you’re gone. I love you so much Tim,
I never stopped loving you. You were my bestfriend. You were my true love and our love will still be treasured with all of the beautiful memories that we had shared together. I never loved anyone so much in my life. I believe you were and are my only true love. There will never be another person like you Tim. I love you and miss you so much.

Happy Birthday Tim. I miss you with all of my heart. I will come and visit you more. They say as time goes on, It gets easier. That’s not true, Not true at all. My heart aches for you and no one will ever take your place. I will visit

Love, Your other Half.
