On Sunday November 8th, 2020 at 5:03 am I lost my best friend of 32 years, My Husband of 26 years, the best Father to our four boys, Kyle Wayne, Kevin Michael, Brendan Matthew and Casey James and my heart and soul.
32 years ago, this young boy walked on my school bus and right into my heart. I knew the minute I saw his smile that I was going to marry him someday, so much so that without knowing his name I wrote in my diary that I knew I was going to marry this boy and when I did I would treat him like a king.
I clipped a horoscope out of the local newspaper that said, August 1988 will be a memorable one for you, I still have the newspaper clipping today. On August 27th, 1988, my forever love asked me to be his girlfriend and 6 years later asked me to be his wife.
Together we have been through the trenches and we have fought many battles, but through it all we never lost site of our love for each other. I always told him as long as we had each other we didn’t need anything or anyone else, I used to sing the growing pains theme song to him, siting that as long as we had each other, we had the world.
Immediately after getting married, we started our beautiful family and became mom and dad to four of the most amazing boys. We always took pride in what a terrific job we did raising them, and we would high five each other and say we were the best team ever. Erik would say “there is no other couple in the world like us babe, no one has what we have.”
I do not know if anyone could ever know or understand how much love I have for Erik, I love every little thing about him from his head to his feet, his good moments and his bad moments, because no matter the moment he was him. I love Erik’s strength, his confidence, his passion for life, music, and his family. With Erik there is always a lesson or a story in everything he does and everything he does is from his heart.
Erik is my soulmate, my best friend, my teammate, and the love of my life forever.
I love you Erik with all of my heart and soul, I love you so much. You will always be my forever love and babe your always in my heart.
