Although our first year of marriage was a little rough, our love for each other pulled us through. Every day I spent with Vanessa I loved her just a little bit more. Why? There were so many reasons to love Vanessa. Let me tell you a few:
Vanessa was the kindest person I ever knew, one of the few people I have ever met that could never knowingly wrong anyone.
Vanessa was one of the few people I have ever met who achieved her greatest joy from seeing other people happy. She lived every day trying to make me happy and she succeeded.
Vanessa could never see a stray animal without wanting to take it home. I remember the day we saw a van throw a pit bull puppy out on a major highway. Vanessa stopped, picked up the puppy and took it home, without blinking an eye.
One thing I can say about Vanessa, she made me a better person. Knowing her has made my life better, richer...
Vanessa died after a long battle with Diabetes and Kidney failure. She was the strongest woman I have ever known, the most loving wife I could ever expect to have. She was everything to me and I will never forget her.
