It's bittersweet to think that the last time I sat outside with my typewriter, I was writing an emotional poem expressing my love to you. I now sit on this same concrete step, trying to write my goodbyes to the love of my life. As I'm typing this out on paper, I can now truly feel the gut-wrenching pain of my hemorrhaging heart, my blood still spilling out of the gaping hole made since you left me. Every breath I take is another finger jab into the center of my heart that is somehow only functional enough to keep me alive and apart from you. With all this pain I have, I am still so proud of all the things you were able to accomplish in your life, and I'm grateful you chose me to be the one by your side, enjoying and experiencing the ride with you.
I am so happy and enlightened to now witness the effects of the lives you changed you were not even aware of. Those you touched, loved, cared for, defended, and helped fight their demons of suicide; these are all people whose lives will go on paying forward the love, care, and wisdom you taught
"It's a love story, baby just say yes." them all in the process. Surviving you has led me to uncover the perceptions you had about the world around you that were correct. I have also found heartbreaking truths regarding things you were mistaken about. I'm glad you've been with me to see how many people truly cared about you and have come in flocks to help lift me up during my devastating grief of losing you.
I hope you know that I don't expect you to be putting in all the heavy lifting work of haunting me as I will forever have you in my heart and mind. You will always be the better half of me, my critical thinker, my consoler in chief, my goodnight kiss, my gentle whisper in the morning sun, and you will always be my beloved husband.
Have a great day at work, baby.
That target in the sky is lucky to have you,

I would like to take the time and express my true sorrow at the loss of your husband/son/brother/father/family. I do not know you or your family. Your letter to Nate was beautifully written and heart felt. It brought tears and deep ache in my heart. I wish that you did not have to walk this path as this type of loss (as any) is so profound and filled with the unknown and what if's (coming from experience). However, I believe that Nate feels your love and I hope that your memories of him give you peace in the days and years to come.
(I grew up in Utah & I always look in this section of tributes)
With all sincereness, I am SOOO sorry your loved one has crossed over the rainbow. Your tribute is one of the Best, most Tender that I have ever read. I feel your sweet Nate close to you, watching over you. May the Gods & Godesses watch over you all, carry you allm and shower you all in peace.
I am not known to you or the family. But I would like to take this time and express my true sorrow at the passing of your family/son/husband. Your letter to Nate was well written and heart felt.
They "say" that time heals the heart, Or maybe it just helps us deal with things differently. Remember the good times or feel their presence.
But I am a firm believer we will see our loved ones again. And I DO know that they are with us, keeping us safe from harm. Just always listen with your heart.
Best wishes - You are in my thoughts and prayers.
