    I had my fun days with you and will never forget them.. our paths turned different directions after 19 yrs…..You got a daughter and grandson and granddaughter from this and i got another son .. We still stayed friends off and on. Our sweet Matthew died on us at 43..It was a hard thing to deal with..I was by your side the last day of your death praying for God to ease you pains and fears and just to be a support for you.. In the end you seen I was there for you for hours because we had been knowing each other for many years and you were the father of my children.. I held your hand and told you don”t be afraid and told you I love you and Jesus loves you.. You fought so hard to stay but yet wanting to go. Now my child love RIP and you have peace and no pain anymore .. All bad times are over . see you later. Marty
