Thinking of you today it's hard to believe you're gone and almost a month already. Feels like I just held your hand, saw your smile' and kissed your head. The grief of loosing you has come in waves. I get sad and try to stay positive by hearing your voice and all the things you said to me this past year about knowing how much we love you and how special you feel and how loved we all are from loving on you and receiving your love. It means alot to me that you shared your feelings with us.I know you were in pain and God wanted to take that away from you. I wanted you here but that was for me and what was best for you was to be free and no longer suffer not just in your physical pain but the sadness you felt not going to the ocean and being 20 minutes away or not getting to do all the things you love and enjoy not being mobile. I know that was so hard for you. But you were strong and held on long enough for my Mom to get to say goodbye and that's all I could have wanted. I knew you were gone and just the machine was keeping you here. Its hard to let go of a man so special as you are. You are at peace now with our Father, daughter,son in law, brothers, sisters, and parents . I pray you wake up and see the ocean everyday now Papa. We love you so much Please watch over us you will be truly missed. Love always Jess
