I have searched for words, thank you. Thank you for creating the perfect human for me. You created a great man and I am so blessed to have had 9 years with you. My heart aches as you left too soon but my heart also rejoices in you're no longer in pain and are with the ones who went before you. I know we will meet again. I will always celebrate you as we shared the same birthday. I will continue to love and cherish our family.
