To my Chuckie Flow

My partner in crime

My one of a kind A husband like no other

Our long life memories together will never fade

And I thank God for that

Although we had our ups and downs we still woke up to each other everyday

We shared plenty laugher and good memories

Yeah all times may have not been nice, but that never stopped our love or made us think twice I know how much you loved me

Just as much as I loved you

And each time I think of you

Just know I’ll miss you too

Love your wife Joan
