  5. Sarah(your wife) says:

    To my love: I never felt true love until I met you. You made me so complete. I don’t know how I am going to go on without you. I will miss my “good morning beautiful” text in the mornings, the huge hugs you gave me while whispering in my ear “it will be okay baby.” I could go on and on about what i will miss about you. Whoever did this to you they will be caught. The boys were ready to head down and take care of business because you always taught them to take care of each other. they will be caught and I will be at every court date and try to get the max sentencing. I promise you that. I love you so much my husband until we meet again. Love, your wife!

    It’s been almost three years. October is months away, I know, but I still think about what happened a lot. I wish I had called you when I had the chance. Wish I’d talked to you more.

    I wish I had gotten a chance to know you the way the people in your life did… I would have given anything to know the you that they did.

    I was going through old pictures from storage the other day, and I finally found it; the picture of you holding me when I was a baby. You looked happy. I like to think you would be happy if you were still here, with the things I’ve learned and done these last few years…

    I wish I could call and talk to you and tell you everything that’s changed… and I wish I could hear your voice on the other side of the line, telling me you’re doing okay.

    There’s a lot I wish… but more than anything, I wish for your peace.

    Thank you, for the short time I got to know you, if even for a little while. Thank you for making peace with me, and giving me a chance to know that you loved me.

    I’ll always remember you for that.

    Good bye, Dad.
