“When I lost you, I lost myself too. I wish I could see you one more time walking through the door. But I know that is not possible. I will hear your voice no more. I want you to know that this adversity of hurt and avalanche of pain coming from losing you has broken my heart in pieces. I can’t understand why someone so precious to me had to die. In my next life, I pray I will walk hand in hand with you, pour out my heart to you. You will never be alone. I will be with you every step of the way. Rest in peace, my dear boy.”
