We always heard the first year of loss was the toughest. For that first year, every day was the first without you. November was the hardest so far, with your birthday and our anniversary among the days.
You were our rock, our foundation and our compass. You still remain so. Your legacy will always be your children – Theresa, Mark and Sarah Jane. You loved nursing, but raising the kids and motherhood were your true calling. What a terrific job you did. I am so proud of you.
We miss you terribly but we are happy that your suffering and pain is over. As I promised you, your dog Marley will continue to be taken care of to enjoy that quality of life you wished for him.
Enjoy your reward in Heaven with our Lord and your mom and dad.
Missing you, BDT.
