I always thought I could never do this.Putting all my sorrow and feelings out there for the whole world to see isn't me,but today as I'm missing you so much I feel the need to do so. I know you wouldn't want to see the tears streaming down my face but I can't stop them.I'm missing you as much now as I did the day you had to leave us.It still feels like it was yesterday.I love you with all my heart and am praying I get to hold you once more in Heaven.You were always precious and will ever be precious to me. With all my love, your Mom.
