Oh babes, where have you gone? Have you made it to the other side? Are you looking down upon us now, sitting there on the right side of God and giving guidance of how the angels roofs should be constructed? :) I miss you more than you shall ever know. You gave me strength and inspiration. You showed me the world. The places we visited, the memories of our time spent together, will never ever be forgotten. From our very first cruise together where I gained at least 10 pounds. To the Navigator of the Seas where you proposed to me on Valentine’s Day on bended knee on the balcony under a full moon and had the occasion planned so perfectly. To Istanbul, the Azores, Malta, Bruges, Italy, Spain, Alaska and New England to name just a few. Your generosity could never be repaid. You were hard on me but you had your reasons. I always told people we would get divorced before we got married. You were a porcupine. But you were my porcupine. Bristly on the outside but with a soft, tender, gentle heart on the inside. I am so glad we found each other. Your screen name, Gr8soul4U was so appropriate. Michael, thank you for all you did for me and giving me three wonderful children. Hailey, Obie and Drifter love and miss you dearly. But we know you are now in a much better place. Where there is no strife and never any type of pain. Just everlasting love with the Almighty. He cherished you so much He called you home. Although we are crying here on Earth heaven is rejoicing because one of their angels has returned. I love you and always will. Thank you for being true to yourself. You touched so many lives in so many different ways. Thank you for reaching out and touching mine. Forever your Sweets aka Meatball.

Dan and Jia
