I'm a few days late, but I do think of you as you are two days after my son. I know exactly what your Mom goes through on a daily basis. We live in the past and also the future wondering what could have been. Keep watch over your Mom and also your daughter who I hear wants to follow in your foot steps. Protect them both. You will never be forgotten.
