“John, my love, my high school sweetheart, my world, and most importantly the father of my babies. I have no words for what I am writing, this doesn’t feel real.I’m sure I’ll constantly be thinking of things to say about you. You made me the happiest gal in the whole world. You made me see the best in myself and gave me the life I wanted for us. I’m going to miss you everyday of the rest of my life. The kids will miss you dearly and will know everything about you. You are my everything and will always be. I know you are still with me and the kids. I’m sure Aurora was waiting for you at the gates of Heaven. I bet she’s another spitting image of you. I love you unconditionally. There is still so much we had left to do, but we’ll do it when we meet again.

Rest in paradise my sweet love”
