My husband, Dean, was taken from this earth unexpectedly on my 41st bithday. He was the most wonderful man and father. I miss him so very much that the pain is so overwhelming, nothing can ever replace the emptyness that is in my heart. Anyone who knew him could not help but love him. He was a gentle soul and truly my soul mate. He died alone and cold and the thought that I never got a chance to say goodbye is tearing me apart. He is gone, but NEVER forgotten. We were married 23 years. Dean, I love you with all my heart and always will.
