RAVEN: Fritz?

FRITZ: Raven, tell the kids I love them very much. Every single one of them. Don’t let them forget that they made my life complete. And so did you, Raven. I love you so much. I knew there was something about you that first time I saw you jog past my house. You smiled at me & I knew I had to know you. You have made my life worth living. I love you with my heart & soul.

I was so confused. What was happening to my husband? This can’t be happening to my husband! I couldn’t stop the tears. It hurt to breathe. I felt completely paralyzed.

RAVEN: Fritz. I don’t understand. What’s going on?

FRITZ: Raven, honey, it’s my time…

No. No. No! No! NO! This isn’t happening. This can’t be happening. This is a nightmare. It isn’t real. Please wake up. Please, please let this be a nightmare. This can’t be happening…

RAVEN: NO! It can’t be. We need you. I NEED YOU!

FRITZ: Everything will be okay. I promise. I love you all very much. Promise me you’ll never forget that?

RAVEN: I promise. I love you.

FRITZ: I love you too, beautiful.
