"Today is a juxtaposition of emotions.
12 years ago was one of the absolute worst days of my life. Losing one of my best friends.
But, 8 years ago, I went on a faux-date with the woman of my dreams, and I was blessed to call her my wife for four years.
It’s a tough day.
But I’m going to stay focused on the positives that I have going right now. And be thankful for all the moments I got to share with those two special people."
