Although I have been here often, I never know what to say. Since you were taken from us when I was a baby, I only have memories shared by our family. Even though they aren't mine, I cherish them, and wish for more. It's hard to explain the feeling of loss that I have since I never got to know you, but it is deep and always with me. I try to make sure that your grandson hears all of the stories of you. I want him know of your love of family, your strong will and character, your knowledge of right and wrong, and desire to take care of others. I guess I do know you, thanks to our wonderful family, and I am honored and blessed to be your daughter. I will never forget you, or let you be forgotten. I love you and I miss you.
