Today would have been my third wedding anniversary. While I have spent the past week speculating on how I would spend this day (see “Three Cheers for Three Years”) I have decided that regardless of what I do, that I will spend it being better, not bitter.
So….today, I will go to your grave and say “thank you”.
For giving me the happiest six and a half years of my life.
For teaching me about DnD and Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, and a million other things I never would have given a chance otherwise.
For making me laugh and smile almost every single day.
For being the supportive, knowledgeable, loving father to Luke.
For showing me that I am stronger, more capable and independent than I ever thought I could be.
For giving me Gwendolyn.
I wish we could have had more time, but even forever wouldn’t have been long enough.
I love you more than there are stars in the sky.
