"Dear Micheal:

It is almost your birthday. It has been a little over a year since you left us and I think of you every single day. Some days I think I can hear your voice with the wind blowing in my back yard. I visit your resting place often because it is the only place I can find close to you. I know that you know how much I have loved you over the years we were together. I cherish the last hour of your life that we spent together. I am so lucky that I was the one with you those last moments. I miss you terribly. I still love you as much today and I did the last time I saw you. I know in my heart that you loved me like noone else. I should have listened to you all the times we talked. There will never be any other man in my life or any other man that will hold my love they way you continue to do. I know we will see each other again. All my love to you. Jodi"

"Dear Michael

It has been so long since I have kissed or touched you. It is now Christmas and I am sitting here tonight remembering all of our Christmas times that we spend together. I miss you so much. There is not day that goes by that I don't speak about you or wish that I heard that "Hello Sunshine" phone call from you. I visit you every week and have planned to be buried beside you. You blessed my life so much and you continue to bless me. You once told me that you would be mine forever. I hold that conversation with me daily and pray to see you when it is time. I want you to know that I am doing well with my career. My life is very full with my children and granddaughter. I can still smell you and your breath and I can still feel your touch on the last day that we were together. I pray that I can be the person that you were. I miss you and love you as always."
