40 and Counting

I remember walking through the Volusia Mall holding your hand shortly after we found out you had cancer. We had been married less than two years and were staring at a tremendous obstacle already. As the seriousness of what we were facing settled over me, I looked at you with tears in my eyes and said, "I'm not ready for you to be gone yet. We just got started." 

Here we are 17 years later--longer than any doctor probably would have given us--with so much life together behind us and even more in front of us. As we celebrate your 40th birthday today my thoughts are still the same. I can't imagine this life without you. Hang on baby because we're just getting started.
