July 25, 1970 - May 24, 2008

You were everything to me and my heart is forever broken.  
You will always be the one true and great love of my life.
Thank you for your love, the life we shared, the cherished memories,
and most of all for our three beautiful children.  
We miss you so much!  
Rest in peace my darling.
