To My Husband Frank
I miss you so much
You are my best friend
I will always remember
All the wonderful loving times we had
I always felt so loved and safe
I know that you are my Soul Mate
I didn’t want to say goodbye
But now you are in a better place
Where sickness and pain
Will no longer hurt you.
