My dear hubby, 1 year has past since you left all who love and cherish you.
My life is so different these days, I miss you so much its painful. I know you are
with out pain or suffering and this I am grateful for. I don't know what its like to suffer with Cancer,but seeing others that I love suffer with it makes me realize that I did not want you to suffer any more. I love you my darling and miss you so much, I know we will be together one day,you are my heart.
Affectionately yours.
your bride

Melanie, Nicholas, and John Robert

We are all obviously very sad knowing David's physical presence is no longer with us. Tim was especially sorry to hear of all your loss as he had a special bond with the other "white" spouse when we all got together. We didn't spend as much time as we would have liked but the times we did were a lot of fun and meaningful. David has a special place in our hearts and will be missed. We love you Mr. Makeover!

All our love always, Tim, Teresa, Caitlin and Mallorie
