I love and miss you so much, its almost too much to handle. There are so many things I want to tell you and I know your aware of what's in my heart and mind. You were right about one thing Mom...I'm a strong woman, and just like you in that aspect. I over came some things in my life that at the time, I felt I couldn't. It has made me who I am right now. I have no regrets, because its pointless to dwell, or attempt to change the past, or things I have no control of. I do regret one thing. I wish I would have realized sooner that you were sick, and been close enough to take care of you. I would have...you know that. Mom, you were and always will be my best friend. You are my heart and soul, and I will never stop missing you. When I talk to you now, I hope you can hear me and understand. I will always need you Mom...forever.
All my love forever,
