I've never turned during bad times or when you had financial difficulty. I did my best to be there for you when you were ill. I'm guilty of not always showing it properly but I've always loved and cherished you. My plan was forever. I may not have brought home riches, been a hero, did all my tasks... I probably could have been kinder at times, and I probably could have been gentler at others. I was wrong in so many ways but I was right in one. I've always loved you. I've always expected to be with you forever. It was special to me that we were such good friends in addition to husband/wife. Throughout good and bad times I looked at it as being in it together. We dealt with everything as a couple. Going to bed with you angry at me was so much better than going to bed with you nowhere around. I can't laugh, cry or cherish you if these vows meant nothing.
