Dear Lecretia,

Today marks the fifth anniversary of the day you were taken from me, and the day you received the ruling you would not have a choice about how you would die. So much has happened since then that you do not know about and that I wish you had been able to see. You will never know how much of a difference you made. And you'll never know how much I've missed you.

I got married again like you hoped I would. It was difficult for a while, opening up to someone else after losing you. But I did find someone and she is extraordinary. You would like her. We have a daughter now, too. It hurts to know how much you wanted to have a child with me, but I think you'd still be happy for me now if you could see me. I hope you would be proud of the man I've become.
