Rick six months ago yesterday I married you. That was the best day. You were and still are my heart and soul. I still wonder how did I get so lucky to have you in my life and love me. I was blessed every day by your presence. I miss you so bad. I hope one day to be reunited with you. I love more today than yesterday but not as much as tomorrow
