I like the positive idea.  It brought tears to my eyes but it's ok.

1.  He'd do the Jerry Lewis walk down the hall when we'd get home from a dinner out all the way to our apartment and then racing to the bathroom when we got in.

2.  Singing in the car on a road trip while he turned up a song we both liked and grew up with.

3.  The paper hearts he'd cut out and hang from the chandelier in our living room.

4.  Trying different restaurants together

5.  Watching TV in a puppy ball with our Westie on the bed

6.  Going for walkabouts with our canine son

7.  How he'd stop the car on a scenic ride so that I could take photos.

8.  When he'd bring me flowers for no other reason than he thought I'd like them.

9.  When he'd make a Christmas card out of the photos I'd taken during one of our trips.

10.  When he'd ask me if I wanted to fool around when I was very sick and looked awful.

I Love you Sweetheart and I am forever yours!  

Wow great idea and some of mine are similar.

1. The way he said my name.

2.  How he tried to ignore me.

3. Holding his hand.

4. Sitting at the beach surf fishing.

5. Hikes in our nearby park.

6. How he danced to Motown.

7.  Slim Jims and Beer

8. Telling me over and over the types of trees while we walked, no matter how many times I asked.

9. Having coffee together.

10. Arguing over were to travel.

It has been 1267 days since you left.  Damn.  Miss you love you.

  1. Hearing Jeff's voice. Hearing Jeff snore. The smell of Irish Spring soap on his clean body. Jeff's ( formerly annoying) music. Jeff's touch. Jeff's humour (same as mine). Being loved and held. Jeff's Giants and Mets. Jeff's ringtone on my phone. Always being asked "What's for dinner?" Being loved, wanted and needed by your best friend. Why did you leave me?? Why did God take you first? You were 82nd Airborne, surrender was NEVER an option...I miss you more every day, my Jeffrey, my love, my life..for 32 days in the SICU you faught a battle that defied all odds 68 hours in Hospice and I was sitting outside your room having a smoke while your Jump Master called and your jump wings turned to those of gilt and gossamer as you soared through and above the playgrounds of your brother eagles into the arms of God. Jeffrey T Chappina 26 July 1962- Monday 13 November 2017.

Why did God take you first?? Why?? You always knew I was ( and still am ) nothing without you. My life is a neverending hell..I am "living" with Heather..Our Grandson hates me, Ty still hates me, even Nureyev wants little to do with me..When God took you he took everything except my body that's now rotting from the inside out.

All the bull sh**...'tis better to have loved and lost...etc...," God never gives you more than you can handle"...REALLY??!!.."For everything there us a reason"...Footprints in the sand??...your favourite...NO!!! "Only the good die young"...BINGO!!!

1 Our kiss goodbye and saying I love you to each other before leaving each morning

   Our kiss goodnight and saying I love you to each other before going to bed each night

2 The pursed lip pouty look when I annoyed her, sometimes on purpose hoping for the look.

The way she said my name when she really wanted me listen and pay attention because what she wanted to say was very important.

3 How happy she would be every time I came home with flowers.

4 Calling at lunch to see how her day was going.

   Calling each night to let her know I was on my way home.

5 Her strength of will, fierce independence and wealth of faith. Her counsel.

6 Sitting in the grass in the park, side by side, watching football practice, even though that was many years ago.

7 Holding her hand.,

8 Those quiet tender moments together that only we shared.

9 Her drive to be doing something, to go, go, go even though at times it wore me to a frazzle.

10 My best and often ONLY friend for 32 years.

MaryAnn, you gave my life purpose and meaning, I am lost without you.

Keeping it to just ten? 

Ok... challenge accepted:

-I miss Ed's brilliance and his insight. We were each other's blind-spot coverage. And I miss being able to rely on that. Alot. 

-I miss being asked "So...(trying to be casual) any thoughts on dinner?" It used to aggravate me to no end but over the past year or so, I had made peace with it all. Now I miss cooking for him. (big sigh)

-I miss his beautiful hands, his face, his physical presence and looking at him. I never stopped having a crush on him.

-I miss his voice...and he was often LOUD. :-) 

-He was my favorite date. I miss our errand running and evenings out. We never ran out of things to discuss. 

-I miss the way he would walk out to greet me when I got home from work (he worked from home). I regret that I was EVER on the phone with friends when I got home from work. :-/ 

-He was a hobby pilot and a complete weather nerd. I miss hearing about what clouds were what, what and where the winds were coming from etc. He would always know whether or not it was a good night for lighting a fire based on the direction of the wind. I used to make a gesture like a beanie propeller above my head when he would talk about the weather and he would smile. 

-I miss his crooked kisses. He had permanent nerve damage after a bout of Bells Palsy and when he puckered up to give me a smooch, it was crooked in the most adorable way. 

-I miss the way he/we bought everything in bulk even though it was just the two of us. 

-I miss his hand resting on my hip while he watched me making dinner.

I miss the security of the life we had, the plans we had and that he was my best friend.
