The irony is we have already been doing that for the past 20 years! Oh, how God has loved me to give me YOU! We were already planning our 20th wedding anniversary in November, assuming that we had time!😭💔 You and I were joined at the hip, now I feel completely off-balance, incomplete, without my other half! My SOULMATE!😭😭😭💔,” wrote Connie Ferguson.
