Happy Birthday! You would have been 44 years old tomorrow. I heard you this morning whispering "I'm here" waking me up at 3:15 this morning. I hope you didn't think I'd forget that tomorrow is your birthday - how could I? I said a short prayer for you so you can continue your life in the afterlife in complete peace and harmony. You are the gift that keeps on giving; when I'm down, I remember what you used to say to me "just be grateful that you are alive and healthy." Then, I snap out of it. I am grateful that you were in my life for 12 years and that you were an awesome father figure in my son's life. You were always good to him, as a matter of fact, you guys got each other...more so that you guys would talk smack right in front of me. Looking back now at it, it cracks me up!
Thank you for the time together and for teaching me lessons that now I truly appreciate. Thank you for loving me and Jonathan unconditionally despite of what others might have thought about me. I will always love you - you might have died but our love has transcended, you carry it with you into the afterlife and I hold you in a special place in my heart. PLEASE continue to put in a good word for me and the rest of our loved ones still here on earth - we'll need all the help we can get. Not goodbye, see you later.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU, MY BROTHERS & SISTERS AND THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO SHARE A PIECE OF MY HEART WITH YOU. BE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR LOVED ONES AND NEVER FORGET TO TELL THEM YOU LOVE THEM.
