Daddy - I wanted to share with you that next week is a really big week for me. I get to travel to China for work. I am a bit nervous - but it makes it harder to know that Mima is having a hard time right now. Please watch over her...keep her safe in your loving heart. I love that woman - I just want to make her proud. Dad - you gave us a wonderful mother - the strongest role model that we could hope for...help her be strong now...remind her that she is extremely valued by all of us. I love you Daddy - watch over me in my travels.
