Remembering Our Love ❤️ You were chosen today. You're learning how to fly. The world took you away, and I will try not to cry. And you chose me today to try to be strong 💪🏽, so I will try not to cry and say that you're gone. When I'm feeling alone, I will remember OUR LOVE ❤️, You are up near the stars looking down from above. You said: Remember OUR LOVE ❤️ and in a moment you will see that I'm still here beside you when you're thinking of me. @rdugg35 I loved you before I knew you were @nataliecoleofficial son. I married my best friend. The love of my life. I am sad to see you go and there is no prayer that I can pray to bring you back. I wish we had more time. No one can replace the memories we shared. The love we had. And the child we made. I can't imagine what life will be like knowing that you are gone. I am grateful to have known you. Been apart of your life and your very first ❤️.
