Karl's Thoughts...

I still keep his Facebook going, we need to have it. The kids and I still write lil' notes to him on his wall, telling him about our day, our frustrations, our dreams, our love and how much we miss him.
Maybe he can't see it, maybe he can.
It really doesn't matter. It helps us cope and that's all that's important.

This is what he has had on his profile since the beginning of his FB page.

"I am nothing special of this I am sure. I am just a common man with common thoughts. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, that has always been enough

Married to my beautiful wife Kim for 30 years,soon to be 31, on april 19 2009. im still a psycho, but with a direction in life. Love to make people laugh. Im very intense about what i do, maybe to much.Love motorcycles,nascar,go 88!and driving tractor trailers across this beautiful country. Loyal, Loving, and Faithful. Just dont piss me off. Its not pretty! Oh Yeah Sober and Drug Free! you also must be this to hang with me."


Funny thing is he always remembered to change the years we were married {were? Shit, that again} but he never remembered to change the date {year}, no matter how many times I'd remind him. Just another one of those things some couples might have thought annoying, but I always thought it was cute. :)

He also had this in his fave quotes...

"Favorite Quotations To Thine Own Self Be True.
faith,hope, and love kim said it !

~~~~A girl asked a boy if she was pretty. He said no. She asked him if he wanted to be with her forever. He said no. She then asked him if he would cry if she walked away. He again said no. She had heard too much, she needed to leave. As she walked away, he grabbed her arm and told her to stay. He said, 'You're not pretty, you're beautiful. I don't want to be with you forever, I need to be with you forever. And I wouldn't cry if you walked away, I would die.~~~~"


Even though he'll be gone three months on Tuesday, days like today, when I find a little something on the road during my morning "Vinny Walk" that was definitely something that would catch even my ADD attention, and reading the words he wrote again, in my heart it's like he is still keeping that spark alive.

I miss that beautiful man with every ounce of my broken heart.

I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes, a lump in my throat, and pain in my heart. But...a smile is also on my face. Thinking of you, dear friend, and wishing I'd become a friend of Karl's on his Facebook. Sounds like has a great one -- and glad you guys keep it up with messages to him. I love his quotes and sayings!! :)

Luv ya...

Huh - that last post wouldn't let me put my name after I clicked on "Name/URL". FYI, it is from Shiela. :)

I would be such a lucky woman to find a love like you had with your "Vinny". ALthough he's gone from your physical presence, it must mean so much to carry that love and to still be able to read his words from his heart.
Thank you for sharing with the rest of us.
