"Frank. my sweet heart and love, I miss you so much!" You are my strength and inspiration every day. I think of you and long to talk it over with you. You left so suddenly that I didn't have time to prepare. I know you are singing with the angels in Heaven and one day I will join you again and we will sing again. Our Anniversary will be here this month May 31st and I will pick a beautiful red rose from the rose bush you gave me. Just like you would have done.
