My happiness is that we made the best memories together and that keeps me going. I am sure you know the girls have made me so proud. I remember the day we did this song together in the studio. You sang your verse and I fell in love all over again. You winked at me from the vocal booth and I blushed. When you came out you hugged me and said you meant every word. I miss you so much Jay, words cannot express it enough for me. We will never forget you. I am grateful to God that I got to do life with you no matter how short. A great man, the best husband and the most amazing dad. You will always be in our hearts. Love you forever.”
