So I’m living my life as best I can, only not as we had planned it. Life’s not the same without you but I get by day to day. Heartaches and tears are still with me, they just won’t go away. I know you will be there Frank, when my time on earth is through and all the heartaches and the tears will be gone, when I’m at last with you. In loving memory of Lesley-Anne who sadly passed away on November 18, 2018. Those we love don’t go away, They walk beside us every day.
