There are too many things I need to remember, too many things I need to say. Memory being what it is, I am putting these things here for both of you. I love you both more than you can ever know, perhaps until you have your own children. And when you do hold that child in your arms for the first time, think back on your mother and I – this is how we felt, how we feel about you both.
Life is too short and my only regret is that I was not able to have you sooner, so that I could spend more time with you, see you grow further. I cherish every moment with you both, I long for more time with you every day, my greatest joy is your affection.
This is what happened, and why.
