As I sit here on the 5 month mark today of losing my wife, I have been reflecting on our 21yrs together. Not one time am I saying my marriage was perfect, but for us it was a perfect match.We got married because we were both ready to settle down and raise a family. We loved each other immensely. I remember our first date, I took her out supper and then we went shopping for baby clothes.over the years we grew so close that we could finish each others sentences, and with just a glance we would know what the other was thinking. We shared a bond that I will probably never have again with anyone. I married a woman with a heart of gold and as big as the sky. I am so much a better man because she chose to love me.This woman was the love that I always looked for and dreamed about. As I sit here today and think about our life together , I am well aware that it was way to short a time for us. I am also thinking about our many conversations about life in general. How she would tell me that I have a big enough heart to make people happy, and that it what I should do. So to my Wendy on this day, I will make a promise to do the best I can with the rest of my life, and to make you proud to have been the love of my life, I love you the most as I have always told you babe.
