The Very Last of My "One Year Ago Todays"
« on: March 17, 2015, 08:01:22 PM »
My Kenneth was buried, one year ago today.  Before the burial, we had a private viewing, just for the family, and they all gave me a little extra time to be alone with him.  So, one year ago today, was the very last time I ever got to be near him, to touch him, to look upon his face.  How desperately I wanted for him to be able to open his deep, brown eyes, so full of mischief, so I could look into them, yet again. More than anything, I wished I could see him smile at me and that we could tell each other how much we loved one another, once more.  I loved his dimples, I loved his voice, I loved his warmth, but that day, he was just so cold and so....gone.  I sure do miss that man.   :'(

Thank you, my dearest Kenneth, for loving me and for giving me the best 13 years of my life.

Oh, hon. ((((HUGS))))

Thank you for sharing your journey with us, I'm sending you hugs today.
I can't look at the stars they make me wonder where you are.

And if I know you at all
I know you've gone too far

Thank you, Kamcho.  It would be an honor to stand anywhere with you.

Thank you for the hugs, as well, anniegirl.  In my opinion, one can never get too many hugs.
