I saw you today, standing up there with her as she tried to hold back every tear. You stood by her rubbing her back saying “Baby you got this” when she stood there talking about you. I saw you today, laughing at every single one of us crying because you’re gone and none of us were ready, telling us to “suck it up wimps, I’m fine” and just danced around the room. I saw you today, standing there besides your brother with a beer in your hand looking at the pictures they set up of you telling him each story of the ones he was pointing out and he laughed like he heard every one.
I saw you today, standing proud as they folded your flag, as they saluted your flag.
I saw you today, you walked right up to me and looked me in the eyes and told me to Love more, be more, and do more, hold my babies tighter and kiss my husband slower. You told me that you are here for me when ever I needed you, and that you’ll always listen and to never take a day of my life for granted. You just gave me a hug and walked away.
None of us were ready for you to leave, all of us wishing for more time, But we are happy you are better now walking, dancing, and jumping around drinking a few beers. You touched so many peoples hearts and lives, You are such a great person, husband, father and friend and you will be so incredibly missed.
I saw you today and I hope to see you again someday.
