I look at yours and Nannie's pictures every day. You both inspire me and push me along when times are rough. I wish I could have had several conversations with you both. It's heartwarming to see how many people love and respect you. I know my Mommom loves you very much, and I love her very much too. I hope you're all having the best of laughs up there.

You're all in my heart always, I love you
