Wow, I didn't expect any likes on my rambling. I ended up turning that into a poem since I accidentally made so much rhyme in there. Want to hear it? Lemme go copy and then I'll paste it here...
I was working as a nurse when Darrell and I met first. At CRMC, on floor 4 E, that is where we met. He called me at work within a day after he left. There was no talking just the car radio playing. Luther's "Here and Now" loudly blaring. Through the phone he showed me how he felt (lol.๐Ÿ˜Š) Was a special moment for me, how it made my heart melt!
God, how I miss him SO dearly! My heart and my soul aching so fiercely!๐Ÿ˜ข
Rest in Peacel! MY Darrell and know my love is forever!
I'm just sitting here listening to that special song reminiscing of all the wonderful days of us being together. From 8/8/08 on, it was "Darrell and Heather." Lord, how painful and how hard it is to breathe!! Forget COVID-19, this grief is killing me!
It's been 6 weeks and 3 days since I've seen his handsome face. I can't help but listen to our favorite songs and cry, just knowing I'll be without him for the rest of my entire life. What do I do in order to carry on with my heart and soul so severely distraught? What can I do to ease this intense pain? Life as I knew it has now forever changed and can NEVER be the same! All I have to hold is the memories but, oh; how precious are these memories to me!
To all who read this, God bless you and keep you! And, cherish the very people that you love for all too soon we perish. We just never know when our time has come. Don't leave "I love you" unspoken, soon your chances will be gone. Unavoidable is the inevitable but our love we will carry on... ๐Ÿ˜ข
Darrell Glenn Davenport, I LOVE you with all of my heart and soul, so strong! When you return to get me, I'll be ready to go! ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œLove Always, Your devoted wife, Heather Davenport
๐Ÿ•†12/23/65-2/14/20๐Ÿ•†
๐Ÿ’8/8/08-2/14/20๐Ÿ’

If you like this, please let me know. Thank you! And God Bless you all! โ˜บ
