4-years ago today I had to say goodbye to you. At 44 & 47 years old, neither of us were ready for this, but God's timing is always perfect. A lot has changed since then. The girls are now young ladies. I'm not the same person you once knew. When you left your earthly home you took 1/2 of my heart with you. My heart had to find a new normal because it couldn't "Move On" like so many people who still had their spouse told me to do. Your departure showed me who my real friends were. In time I made a new set of friends, the kind that have your back through the bad times as well as the good. Darlene McKinney, you are missed here on earth. I am forever grateful for the 19 + years we had together.
