Terry it hurts so bad to be here without you. I don’t know if I can do it. Oh my God please help me

Posted at 05:40pm
Hey baby. I love you. I’m going to make it. I don’t know how to live without you here but this morning I knew I would We miss you so much. Dean is helping me a lot he comes by to check on me. I loved talking to Debbie she was really sweet and had her own celebration for you the next get of the funeral. She asked me your favorite drinks songs bands what u liked to do. Funny you know my answer and that is what we all did. We chilled with bob listened to Pink Floyd and told stories of you on the porch you and Dean built We blasted the woods with the music on Maegans speaker. You would have loved it. I planted a tree that evening for you. It’s my Terry tree but if you were here you would have told me not to plant it so it’s in the way when I back up to porch with groceries 🤣 see baby I need you. I don’t know how to do the day without you so I don’t do a lot I sit at the table tv on low for noise stay on cell doing something or talking on phone look at your pictures talk to you a lil cry listen to music especially Tupelo Honey Wish you were here. Count on me. Sail away and when a man loves a woman I know you don’t remember our first dance to that one n it’s too funny it’s okay I remember. I remember your soft gentle kisses. You were the best kisser I remember your physical strength breaking pickle jars or holding me so tight not realizing you were hurting my arm cuz you went out of your way to be sure you never hurt me. I remember your long legs and big hands We loved holding hands and I remember doing it recently in the car I remember dancing in the kitchen or just holding each other I always felt loved I knew how much you loved me though we were so tired sometimes I forgot only recently. I know you wanted to get back to me and most of your reasons to get back home was me. My reason for fighting for you two weeks to come home was for me to have you and because you are the best and you wanted to live. It’s okay now I don’t want you to have to do this pain though I know you are stronger than me you could but we both know you wouldn’t go to doc n not want to be in nursing home n maybe would have drank more than you should. I won’t since don’t like it enough I will lean on God and family n friends and get things ready for Josh before I go. You know what a good man he is and what’s happening with the others so I’m leaving everything to him maybe few little personal things to grandkids in Tammys care til grown I’ll leave some of your family’s things to Dean n Debbie. I’ll make sure the right people get dogs. I think Josh should have Taco Rascal moose n baby girl. Tammy should take Gracie and I’ll figure out Toby n daisy. Sissy got my keys back for me. I’m done being treated bad. Period never will even speak til she no longer drinks or other n take responsibility for her actions. I love you my kind chilled gentle handsome strong tall big brown eyed bear hugging Terry Bear

Our summer fling turned into 26 years of true love. I say goodbye to my best friend, my lover, my life. God help, because I cannot do this one even a little bit. Til I can hug you kiss you and dance with you baby once more. Next time we meet hold me in your arms and make me safe again.
