    It is with a heavy heart that I sit hear to write my final goodbye to you. I can’t imagine my life without you as our center. There hasn’t been one wonderful event in our lives that you haven’t been a part of and that alone brings sweeping tears to my eyes. You have been this family’s heart and without you we will be lost. Your spirit and your love will carry on in every one of us (especially me: I have your namesake, who I can see each and everyday) I know that you are in a better place with those you have lost, I know firsthand how this makes you feel. I can feel the smile on your face and see you holding all of them. I just hope in your final hours that you know it killed me not being there in person to kiss you and tell you we will be ok. Mom will be ok, Aunt Betty will be ok, Uncle Eddie will be ok and mostly, that in your final hours your sons were there to wish you fairwell to know that in the end, you got what your heart most wanted: your family together!
