Message: Nothing is ever going to be the same without you, I can't believe you're gone. I'm really gonna miss you, going to miss talking on the phone about "The Bachelor"¬? during the show with you and you teasing me because I always say I'm never going to watch it again, and you would say "that's what you said last year"¬? and laugh. My heart is hurting losing you and even though we never said it enough I love you and I hope you knew that!
