Farewell My Love

I have been wanting to begin my blog again for some time and now is as good a time as any. Since our life has unexpectedly suffered a tremendous loss, I feel the need to address it and begin our new phase with a tribute to one of the most hilarious and loving men I have ever known.

To My Incredible Hulk (for those who used to read my blog - you understand the reference).

Every Time.....
I watch a Jim Carrey movie
I hear our wedding song
I glimpse a man in camouflage shorts
The family turns on "The Burbs"
I look into our daughters eyes
U2 comes on the radio
A silver mustang drives by
I encounter a good looking bald male
I shed a tear
I pet Sammy
I see the #14
I kiss our girls goodnight
I lay my head down on my pillow
I breathe

I will think of you! I love you so much and cannot wait until we are together again.

You made me cry a significant amount of tears with that. I totally was thinking the same thing about Sammy and I was afraid to say it to you. I am glad you said it.

I love you. Missing "the Hulk" with you, although I am certain I will never know quite how much you miss him. I am here for you.

Alicia that was beautiful. Its good to have you blogging again... it makes me feel closer to you and girls even though we're far away. We get in town on the 9th and leave the 13th! So, let me know when you're free and Rhea and I will clear our schedules :)

Tara - Where it says, "Everytime I see the #14 - that is Tony Stewarts number for Nascar. I could never forget Nascar!
