I do not remember you very much, but the little parts that i do i try to cherish and never forget. The day you left for work was the same as always, a hug and kiss goodbye. I never forget you. I do wish to see you again and hear your voice. I still have a long time before I meet you again. A memory of us i never forget is you picking me up from school and playing on the swing set. I remember every nook and cranny of our house, including the little house you made me that I always played in. I never knew my biggest fear would be losing you. I took you for granted and wish I could go back. I always asked God why me and now I know. I am sorry for all the times i disappoint you and hope to be better. I wish to be the doctor that saves everyone so no one experiences what i have to. Losing you is a tragedy I never expected to go through at such a young age. I am heartbroken to not have you here with me, wyatt, and mom but I know you are in a better place now. I will always love you mucho mucho.
