    You were there, Even days and n months after your death you still are there. When I needed a ride you were there, When my furniture broke you were there, when I locked myself out the house you were there. I guess because there's a place in my heart ❤️ that share many memories of our encounters. You are missed I can never have that feeling of being around you and treated like love again like when you would open my door or come to my rescue or blow your horn at me to let me know your in my presence. I Thank God for allowing us time together. Prayers to you ! RIH
