I know your are strong enough to stay the last 4 years and I tried to be brave for you but I couldn't stand the thought of losing you, instead you were the brave one since you felt like you were ready and did your part in the world and in our family. Even though we don't talk much, it doesn't mean I don't love you. You taught us to be independent so that we will be ready and successful on our own when you are gone. I'm gonna miss you so much! I regret the kisses that I didn't give you, but now that I realize that life is short and should be full of loved ones and giving to those in need and family and friends. You have given us so much and in return I hope we have given you more than enough. Deeply inside I wished you could have had enough strength to stay until April 18, 2013 to turn 77. But I guess God had a different plan for you.
Love you forever,
