For some reason the last 2 nights I've been singing that song by lizzy and dani I think that's who sings it anyways lol... u know tia

i carry your heart with me

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
                  i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

I love you xoxo
RIP Gorda, My Panda Bear

Man, do we miss you. I remember so much about us in kindergarten like it was yesterday, I remember I would always go to school crying because I didn't wanna stay in class and you would hold my hand and tell me to stop crying. We would take naps right next to each other and get in trouble for talking and giggling. Omg lol and then when I cut my hair and you snitched on me and I couldn't use scissors anymore...
I still can't accept it. I miss you. I remember I got to your baby shower all late but I was able to see you and I asked you, are you reaas and you said girl I want him out already lol. I went to your house the day you had gotten out of the hospital. .. I think and I was able to hold Luciano I was telling you and Liz that I was going to take him because he was the most cutest calm baby ever.... until you changed his diaper boy did he get mad.You were so happy with him you love him so much and now hes surounded by great amazing strong and lovable people who will always be by his side no matter what... I hope this was something I didnt remembered,because I wish it never happened. I was so excited because my birthday was the next day. Then my mom called me and she asked "where are you , I said in class, and then she told me to step out so I did, she said I want you to be strong I know how much she meant to you and I know that today is your day.. I was like mom what's going on ... Amanda has passed away ... my phone fell and I couldnt hold my tears I went running to my car and drove to tios... Mandy I miss you but I know you're up there guiding your son you can be with him and guide him to the right direction. Just never thought it would be you who I would be writing R.I.P. for. God has gained another beautiful and strong angel.

I promise you as his tia and his god mother that I will always be here for him no matter what good or bad right or wrong, the same way I was for you. I'll always remember how when someone would make you mad or pick on you your first responce would be DON'T MAKE ME CALL MY TIA!!! And you know what you were right you know Tia always had your back I would never let nobody hurt you I didn't care how old or how young, male or female They were going to go through me first. I just wish I could of done something so you wouldn't have left us. I WOULD DO ANYTHING TO TRADE PLACES WITH YOU MOMMY AND LUCIANO NEED YOU SO MUCH!!! WHY GORDA????

So it's been hard to even grasp that your not here anymore. I talk to you all the time like if you were still here. Me calling you annoying or texting you through out the day. I decided to start here just to write down what I think about or talk to you about. Past or present. As I work I seriously think this lady next to me thinks I'm crazy. I'm here working and I hear a song that reminds me of you and I cry. I have my moments on a daily basis. I sit here in silence in tears no one really knows how much you mean to me. Today I'm telling you it's summer and what are we going to do, it's swimming time and tabiltas and ribs. yumm.. Chris is going to 2nd grade and has been good like you always would tell him to be. He wants me to bake cupcakes with him so tonight I'm gonna do that with him. He said since you used to do it with him and he wants (food coloring) lol you had. Emme is potty training and I think she gots it but still no luck with the bottle :( I know. You helped me take Chris off the bottle. She's a feisty one. She likes to argue with Dad like you did. He likes to make her mad. She tells him (your mama). And well I can't forget your sweet beautiful baby boy, every day he is getting bigger and learning so much. The other day I just laid next to him and we must have talked for like 20 minutes he was just kicking those chucky legs and arms. We are showing him how to grab and he's not quite sitting up alone but he will soon. He is such a happy though. I don't know how much he's gonna like the summer. He doesn't like to be hot but loves the water. :) he's gonna be a fishy like all the kids. We all love swimming. The doctor says he's not teething but boy does he slobber maybe he is. Omg and he sucks his thumb like it's soo good. lol. We have to break that habit but just when he gets alittle older because right now he's too cute. Oh, he knows Dads when he hears him he wants all of dad's attention it's funny. Mommy is sad but mijo reminds us soo much of you. He has your smile. I gotta get back to work. ttyl love you.

To the Family and Friends of Amanda,

Please except my deepest condolences. It is unnatural to lose one so young in death. Although I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Amanda, I wanted to share some peaceful thoughts that helped me when I lost my mom to the enemy, death. I've found comfort in knowing that "there is going to be a resurrection" (Acts 24:15) I hope that you'll find comfort in knowing that you can see your loved one again during a time when "death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." (Revelation 21:4)
