I will always remember the day you died. I can still remember the phone ringing that night as Mrs. Wilson was calling to tell me you died. It broke my heart. I was a broken little girl, & you became my hero. I miss you so very much, and I hope that though I have made many mistakes in my life that I have still made you proud of me. You were always there when I needed you.
