Chapter Twenty Nine

He reads her final words from the note she left aloud to the baby every night as they cuddle in bed. When he finishes, he always watches as their beautiful baby's eyes get heavy and slowly fall. He follows and drifts off to sleep with the sound of her voice like a heavenly melody floating through his mind.

For my sweet baby – yes, the both of you.

My life may have been cut short and my learning to love was but a breeze in the wind, but I wouldn't have known of such love if it weren't for you teaching me. I know your heart aches, but I also know that I'm loved and that makes mine glow. So remember, as you look to the stars, that your unconditional love is shining from the sky.

Adrian, please forgive me for keeping this last secret, I only wanted to protect our precious moments together. I didin't want the pregnancy to be revolved around my decision to go through with it knowing the outcome. I'm sorry that I was never able to properly gain full redemption for all I've put you through. I'm thankful for knowing you and I'll be patiently waiting for your arrival to be by my side once again. I'm proud to be your wife, it made everything complete when we married just before our baby's birthday. Thank you for giving me the best ending I could ever dream of.

To my mother, you mean so much to me. I hope I didn't let you down.

I'll let dad know you've never stopped loving him.

Tell Jenna and Mason that they make me proud to have as Godparents.

If they should have any children, be sure to let them babies know about Auntie Ronni.

With all my heart and every morsel of my soul,

I'll never let go.

I love you all.

- Veronica

P.S. There's enough money in our mutual account to hold you over for a while. My dad's car is in the will, you're welcome. The baby's clothes are hidden in the cubby by the nightstand in the guest room. The last painting I was able to create is in the closet of the nursery, hang it on the wall and remember me always.
