My soulmate, and best friend.

Jay, I’m so grateful for the time we shared. I love you so much. Although we met when we weren’t the best versions of ourselves, we helped each other grow and clean up… Present day, we were doing everything right, and living our dream in our new city! Both working full time jobs (and you worked SOO hard). Plans every weekend! We were both almost 3 years clean, and literally everything was perfect!! You had one slip up but that was it. I didn’t see any signs, triggers, anything letting me know that you were slipping again.. And maybe I was in the wrong for thinking you were doing good just because I was doing good. I should have never assumed. I miss you so much. One thing I’m so grateful for is all of our adventures and the places we visited together. You took me everywhere. You taught me things I would have probably never learned without you. You made me appreciate so much more in life.. Our time together was short, but well lived.. For now I’ll ride the wave and see you when you. Te Amo ❤️🙏🏼
