Hey y'all. I wanted to check in here, for those of you that read this that hadn't heard yet. Yesterday I lost my husband, my best friend of 18 years, and the father of my children. This was sudden and unexpected, and we are all heartbroken over this loss.
We met when we were 12 years old, in the 8th grade. Our choir director matched us up to sing a duet at the upcoming talent show, and we have been inseparable ever since. We didn't date until the summer of 2001, and as soon as we started, I knew we were going to get married. This April would have been our 8th anniversary. I will miss sharing my life with him, sharing my every day with him, laughing with him, and I sure will miss his cooking. I can cook from a box. *trying to grin*
Here are the most recent pictures of him...the first one was in September at the Alamo:
This one was at the music program at school. I adore this picture.
Please pray for all of us, but especially my boys in these coming days and months. They adored their daddy, and there's a big empty spot in all of us right now. I don't really know what to say, other than thank you to the entire Splitcoast and stamping community for the amazing outpouring of love that has been gushing over us all day. We are so lucky to be covered in prayer by so many, and we appreciate it more than words can say.
I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I will try to post as I can. Hugs to all of you.
