In my 5th year of widowhood

In my 5th year of widowhood, I've not met anyone that I would consider her equal so it appears I'm destine to be widower to the end of my time on this earth. That's OK with me because on the bright side, I have had the pleasure of knowing and living with a kind, beautiful lady for 37 years. During that time, I never thought anything would ever happen to her and assumed that she would always be there. Unfortunately, in the day to day struggles to get things done and meet the scheduled obligations one do not realize that you have taken things for granted until it is too late. I wish I had spent more time with her and the family instead of solving problems and meeting deadlines. I did not realize how much I would miss her until after she was gone and it was to late.

As I once said, I truly admired so many things about Chris as a person, my best friend, my wife, and my partner. She was without a doubt the nicest person I have ever known. She truly cared about others taking the time to help them through a difficult times with no questions asked. Her friends have told to me that she was indeed a special person that genuinely cared about people and animals. Chris would always go the extra mile to ensure the karma was right and everyone was happy. She still helps me through difficult times. My temperament gets in the way occasionally until I remember her kind and gentle ways of resolving problems and suddenly things are all better.

The grieving has subsided but she will never be forgotten and I'm sure all of you miss her as I do. In remembrance of Chris I have prepared a small tribute to celebrate her birthday on Saturday (06/06/2015).Chris has been gone 5 years this coming November 10, 2015 and she would be 71 old on June 6, 2015.
