You came into my life so tenderly..
Our friendship was oh so heavenly..
We grew to love each other..
I loved you like my brother..
Oh the memories..they will never die..
The vacations we took, the fun we had, New York City..Florida..P-town (Tea Dance every day).. New Orleans..the many DECADENT Mardi Gras Balls we all went to..oh what a ball we had!!!
All that we shared..The daily Phone calls, your College Degree, your Business, your great Recipes, your friends & family, Our Decadent Shopping sprees, Our secrets & our goals..How can I ever forget?
I will never forget your Smile, your Laughter, your Loving Gererosity, your Encouragement, always there for me.. always reaching for that star!
You had big plans, a beach home for all of us, you had dreams..you had the worlds greatest lover..you both were so very happy..the world was yours...
Life dealt you a full deck..but it was not meant to be
Frightening memories..your diagnosis, your fears, your illnesses, your vanity, yet thank god you never "looked sick"..
My encouraging you to go on..Knowing I was losing you..Your health was failing quickly..It hit you so fast in a matter of only a few weeks..You were so afraid..I knew the end was near..
I prayed for you..I Loved You..not wanting to let go of you, yet I knew I had to..
Our last Phone Call..Oh, I will always treasure that..You were so weak & in pain yet you remembered to call Me..Then you were gone the next day..to a better place..
My heart is still broken..I will never forget you Jim..you are always in my heart & forever "The Wind Beneath My Wings"!
