This year I started a new relationship with the most wonderful and kindest man I ever met. He was the most giving and caring person to those he felt needed it more than he did. He loved his family and children with all his heart, and has shown me the most love and caring that I ever knew. This Sunday the good lord felt he needed him more than I did and took him home. Bill I will always love you and I miss you very much.ReplyDelete
Love always, your Kate.
