How Do I Begin…

I don’t know what to say.

I certainly don’t know how I would say it.

How could I tell you what I feel in my heart?

How can I explain to you what this means to my family?

Can I possibly make you understand how unexpected, surprising and meaningful this is?

Can I share with you how emotional your dear friend has been every time he thinks of you?

I don’t know how it happened.

I wasn’t there when it all started.

How could we ever begin to repay you?

How will we ever get a chance to show you?

Can I tell you that I know we will meet again someday?

Can I let you know that until that time you will be a part of our family forever?

You should know that it was beautiful.

You should know that the words were emotional and heartfelt.

I know that you will be there to hear us when we need to talk to you!

I know that you are looking down on us and will be caring for us from the other side.

Did you ever hear me when I told you that I loved you?

Did you feel it when I smiled at you and hugged you?

I didn’t have as much time with you as some, but the memories will last me a lifetime. Apple Pie moonshine at Christmas.  Zombie Killer in the YMCA parking lot.  Shots in our basement at our wedding.  Hugs, Smiles and Laughs that will comfort us when we miss you so much we want to cry.

How do I begin to say Thank you?  How do I begin to tell you how grateful I am to you?  How do I begin to let you know how much you were loved?

I guess this will have to do.
