"Happy Birthday Elfuye!!  I do miss you very much but I am consoled knowing that you are in heaven with the almighty.  I know a time will come that I will join you as well.  I recently listened to a gospel song which goes on to elaborate that " I am no scared of death".  That is true.  
On your behalf, I am going to enjoy olives and cheese with toast bread today.  I remember all the foods that you used to enjoy.  I remember you when I eat something delicious and my mind immediately goes to you.    I remember you when I see somebody who is all dressed up and looking nice.  Thank you for teaching me some values and feminine things in life.  I try to impart cleanliness to my children because of you.  Thank you for spoiling me.  Thank you for loving me and for listening to my deepest needs and wants.  I do miss you badly!"

The few days I spent with you last January in  Los Angeles gave me the last chance to chat about religion and more that I will cherish the rest of my life.  I will keep your pictures with me.

"You’re my one and only mom
I’ll always have a special place in my heart for you
I’m so proud to be your kid
Right from the start, you were the one who nurtured me
Prayed over me
Worried about me
Guided me and supported me in every pursuit
Thank you for being there every day with just the love I needed
Emaye, although we are apart
Your spirit lives within me
Forever in my heart

"My dear Elfuye,
I love you so much and already miss you. I have told you this so many times but I want to say it again, I LOVE YOU. You have provided for all my needs and supported me throughout my life.
It was agonizing to see you in pain this past year. I also thank God for giving me the opportunity to care for you. The grief would have been unbearable have I not had the opportunity to care for you.  
Thank you for being my rock!    
Love you so much.
