without expectation of anything in return. Your Kindness knew no bounds.
Thank you for taking a small disadvantaged child and giving her the love and focus of your life.
Thank you for all the dogs and cats and other assorted creatures that you rescued. Thank you
for crying when they passed on.

for always trying to make it better. You were the most wonderful friend and lover that a man

of watching your own loved ones live and then slip away.
