    I have sat for weeks thinking if I should post something on here. I look at it often throughout the day. Your obituary was the hardest thing I ever had to write. I sit and talk to you all day everyday. You are still with me every where I go. I see it. I hear it. I feel it. You told me many times that you couldn’t go on in this world not knowing that we would be together in the next. You told me I had to believe it too. You cried telling me how you felt. We promised each other we would go together . Yet you left me behind. I promise I will find the truth. I promise we will be together again. You are my soulmate. My one true love. My always and forever baby. You are my husband. My life. My happy ever after. You are the best part of me. I’m so divestated your gone. But I know we will be together again soon. I hope your mind is finally at peace. I love you so much. I miss you every second.
    Until we are in each other’s arms again. My husband my love .
    Your wife
    Crystal Dawn
    Mrs Fife ❤️💋❤️💋
