“Nine months ago today my heart stopped beating. I woke at dawn to find you gone, our bed was empty on your side. You were in my chair - you didn’t wake me to say good by. You left like a whisper. How can I go on without you? For sixty years you were as close as my next breath. What can I do? How will I do it without you?”
