lost my husband some years ago We celebrated our 10-year anniversary in 70s and we were looking forward to many more years to come, but God had a different plan. I miss him every second. He left me with 5 beautiful children and lots of sweet memories. I try to be strong, but it’s difficult not to shed a tear.I feel encouraged knowing I’m not the only one who has lost a life partner and soul mate. I find my comfort and strength from the Holy scriptures and remembering how he loved and I can’t never forget how much femi loves me BUT today he has come back @officialfemiphillips @olabisiomolara8 @rotimiashiwaju
