To my love: Never in a million years would I have thought I would have a soulmate at 19 years old. You came in my life and took in both me and my son to love and cherish forever, you finally gave me your mini me last year, July 26. Its so hard to believe she will be walking soon and turning one, but I’m so happy you were here for us and I know your still here to help guide me from up above. We talked about so many things we would do with the kids and family. I promise I will still do everything you wanted to do. I’ll make sure to teach the kids everything you taught me about cows and trucks. I know I will try my best to stay strong. I know its going to be so hard. We all miss and love you so much and just wish you were still here. Thank you for all the memories, laughs, gifts and things you did for me and our family. This kind of love is the one I will cherish for the rest of my life. I will forever be Mrs. McGill and you will forever be my first and last love. I’m honored and blessed to have had the most amazing life that I wish was longer with you my forever best friend. Death could never separate us. I know no one will love me as much as you did and our kids. So, this isn’t goodbye, this is see you later baby…
P.S. I’m sorry I still haven’t learned to drive the tractor correctly yet. – Love your wife and kids.
