I need you
MY love, you were so happy when Bubba straightened out his life. He's working, married, and next week his child will be born. All I could think today when the doctor was telling us that little Gabby would be here next week was "oh my I need to call Leroy". But, I can't call you.
You should be here to celebrate this monumental milestone. You always had so much faith in him even when I didn't. You'd always remind me I'd raised him better than that and he'd come around. You had more faith in me and him both than I ever could.
Now, when all is right in his world, you are not here. I need you to share this joy with me like you shared all the strife. It's just not the same without you here.
I miss you so, my love. Nothing is right in my world. Everything is off center. June 23rd the world tilted off it's axis and it will never be normal again.
I'll make sure Miss Gabby knows of you and your honor. She'll know how you loved her father and held out a belief in him always. She'll hold you in high regard even though she's never met you.
I love you baby and miss you so. No joy is quite the same since I'm unable to share it with you.
