Guess this is really real. I never in a million years thought that you'd ever be taken down by anything. Your the strongest man I know. It's so humbling to learn that your gone. Guess we're not all invincible.
Well we've been through alot....alot of good times, plenty of bad times, love and hate, more love than ever hate.
When we met, it was euphoric for both of us, we were blinded to the outside world and only saw eachother. I swore I'd never love another soul the way I loved you. Things were great for awhile, but we slowly lost respect for eachother...2 alphas vying for control is never a good scenario. But there was always the need for each others solace. I think this has been the longest we've ever gone without speaking in the last 3 years. I miss the sound of your voice.
I'll never forget the million miles of roadtrips we have travelled. Between, dump trucks, rental cars and stolen uhauls, we've definitly travelled more miles than I probably ever will again. We had so much fun tho, singing at the top of lungs to every song, stopping in every town to try weird food. I will never forget how much I hate oysters lol.
Geez rick, I'm so angry at you for letting this happen. Even with miles between us, I never thought that my phone calls would go unanswered or my day not interrupted by you text bombing my phone. Things that were absolutely taken for granted before now.
I will never forget the lessons you've taught me. I've learned so much from you and our relationship. You showed me unconditional love. It didn't matter the hardship we went through, at the end of the day you had my back. Even when our lives took different directions, we always checked on eachother. I've gone weeks without talking to virtually anyone and it's no big deal, if I fell off the end of the earth, you'd be the first to notice. That meant alot to me. Rick, you said you'd love me forever and you made good on that. Thank you. I'll keep my end as well.
We have so many photos and memories of all our adventures, some good, some bad. I'll forever keep them in my heart. I still have all your letters you wrote me. And I'll read them again and again to keep you close. Jynx is lonely without you, he misses you showing up with random things and riding on your shoulder all day. We will all feel your absence. Untill we meet again, I'll miss you and love you forever.
Your babygurl xoxoxo

Ps. You still didn't give me the code for my bike lock and now I can't unlock my bike....
