My heart is broken. You have always been a part of me since we met so long ago. I have so many fantastic memories of our time together even though we could never be forever. We were unconventional. We made each other laugh. You taught me about Nebraska Football. I will never forget you demonstrating the Fumblerooski at Thanksgiving. You taught me how to read all the details in a horse race program. You were Talented, Funny (you made me laugh to tears), Handsome beyond belief, Smart, Silly, and yes…Romantic. I’ll never forget all the little notes and drawings you would leave for me around the apartment. There will never be another you for me. I know that I was blessed to have you in my life for a short period of time and now I know what we have all lost. I wish I could have held your hand and told you everything would be ok. I’m here with you in my heart and Chris, you are free. I hope to see you in my dreams. Love Pam
