My dear, I want you to know that you were given a very great gift by having John in your life and I know that you realize that he is better off now. I want you to take care of yourself and please know that I love you and think of you so much.

I am so blessed to have known such a generous, peaceful man. You were always so wonderful to my mother and I never had to worry about her when you were near. I am going to miss our Rummy games (even though you always won), our phone chats, and watching you play with your little buddy, Maggie. I appreciate all you did for my mother and I know she loved you so much.I look forward to meeting you again. I will win next time we have a good game of Rummy - even if I have to cheat. Love always,Melanie

I will miss you my love. You have truly been a caring, wonderful husband and dear friend. I am so sorry that you had to go through this, but I know that you are so much better off without all the suffering and all of the pain. I know that you are in a better place with all of your loved ones. You can run through the grass, you can climb your apple trees and you can be in paradise and not have to worry about what is going on here anymore. I love you,Nancy
