    Your Wife (Michelle Coston) says:
    Dear Allen, I keep hearing that over time not being with you will get easier but I just can't seem to find that peace. Everyday I pass a place, hear a song, see something that reminds me of us. The 7 1/2 beautiful years we spent together just wasn't enough when I dreamed of spending a life time with you. I am so jealous that you are not here beside me but I try to remember that you are with our Heavenly Father and when the day comes for us to be together again I will be busting the gates of heaven wide open to be with you and at that time can't anyone keep us from being happy TOGETHER! You showed me how to stand strong and what life is really all about. Together we are still one just like the first day I met you. You are in a better place Allen. Away from all the cold bitterness that people bring upon each other and for that reason I know without a shadow of a doubt you are at peace watching over me. I want to wish you a happy birthday and tell you just how much you are missed and loved. Love you wife, Michelle <3 <3 < 3
