As I am about to start my senior year of high school, I can't help but feel your presence beside me, even though you left this world so early on in my life. Your spirit has guided me through the years, and I find comfort in knowing that you've been watching over me all this time. In the vibrant colors of a sunset, I see glimpses of your warmth and love, reminding me that you're never truly gone. When I see a butterfly, I know it is you saying hello and reminding me that you’re okay. As I embark on this new journey, I carry your memory with me, pulling strength from the beautiful ways in which you continue to touch everyone’s lives. Thank you for being my guardian angel.
