My day off today, so I visited Gary's grave in Hamilton. The weather was awful, rain, rain and wind, however the weather has never stopped me from visiting before. I laid a fresh bunch of flowers, a mixture of roses and lily's. Had my usual talk with Gary and said a little prayer. I am not sure if anyone else visits Gary's grave. I visit frequently and have not seen any other flowers left on his grave. However as long as I visit Gary knows I still love him.

Another day at work completed. Can't believe June is nearly upon us. June is a special month for me. It was 21 years ago in June I met Gary. Those years have just flown in.

May 2016 Gary and I was holidaying in one of our favourite holiday resorts Olhao in Portugal. We stayed at the Real Marina Residence Apartments. The apartments were first class. What Gary liked about Olhao was that although it had tourists, at this time of the year it was not over run by tourists, more importantly Gary could totally relax on this holiday. We could eat out at the local restaurants which were a short walk away, or we could visit the local fish, vegetable and fruit market and buy food to cook in the apartment. The weather was just right for us at this time of the year. Of course we ate a lot of fishy dishes. On this occasion we met up with two friends of one of his sons. We went to a lovely marina restaurant and of course I had my usual Lobster. The food was lovely. One thing that Gary did near the end of our holiday was that he informed me that he had booked another holiday at the apartments for the following May 2017. I remember thinking that he had never done this before. Although we always booked a holiday in another country later in the year usually September he had never booked so far ahead. At that time unknown to both of us we would never take that holiday. It was in September 2016 Gary passed away at home with Lung Cancer. People we knew would suggest to me to take the holiday however I could not bear the thought of going without Gary and cancelled the holiday. I have many happy memories of our holidays in Olhao. I cherish all these memories.

Hello I am going to visit Gary's grave in Hamilton this afternoon. Was thinking of adding more photographs of Gary and I to my tributes. I have many happy photographs of Gary and I, just like the one in 2017's tribute. May 2016 is the month Gary and I had our last holiday together before he became ill with cancer. I will talk about this on another day. I will pick another lovely bunch of flowers to lay on his grave. Roses are my favorite. Gary used to always buy me Red Roses on my birthday and at other times. He was a romantic at heart.

Went to the local Polling station in Carluke yesterday. It brought back happy memories of the times Gary and I would go to vote. I used to always try and tease him about who he was voting for however he would never tell me, even when I tried to look over his shoulder at the polling booth he would make sure I could not see who he was voting for. I used to laugh because I always informed him who I was voting for. Miss him being with me at the polling station. However I know he was looking over my shoulder yesterday when I voted.

Had a rough day at work today, it's days like this that I could speak to Gary. Miss the support and advise he would give me when he realised I needed it. The same support and advise I gave to Gary when he needed it. This is part of my life as a couple that I miss, the love and support we gave to each other.

On my way back from visiting Gary's grave today I listened to Smooth radio as they are paying the top 500 romantic songs. To my delight at number 35 was Barry White's song 'Your the First my Last my Everything' well I was off in a "Tangent" as they say singing alone as I was driving. The happy memories this song has from me and Gary was that anytime we were at nights out when this song was played I would look at Gary and smile as he knew he would have to get up and dance with me. As I always did I would sing this song to him as we danced. Secretly I knew he enjoyed this even though he did not like getting up to dance. As I arrived home another great song was played sang by Bryan Adams 'Everything I do I do it for you'. This is the line in the song Gary would sing to me. (I think he was just trying to get on my good side when he did this). I know Gary was a romantic at heart. Gary and I had total different tastes in music. he liked heavy metal I was more into the romantic type songs. More happy memories I share of my life with Gary.

I visited Gary's grave today. I stopped off at a flower shop to buy fresh flowers as I always do, whilst there I spotted a lovely poem carved into a stone plaque. The sentiment the words portray are exactly what I do. The poem reads.
I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought of you yesterday, days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name, all I have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your Memory is my keepsake with which I will never part.
God has you in his keeping. I have you in my heart. I had to buy it and it is now placed on Gary's grave. I also placed a lovely bunch of orange roses on his grave as well.
Gary's loving partner. Tricia.
