I never really got a chance to say goodbye. It's been months since you've passed and I got the message from Tannie, but it's still hard every day. I still find myself talking to you throughout my day, and I pretend that I can still hear your helpful words of wisdom, advice, and guidance.
You really saved my life, and I mean literally saved my life. I don't know what I would've done without you, or where I'd be if you weren't there those few nights where I had nowhere to turn and no one to call and cry to. You gave me the inspiration to succeed when I really didn't know how I would make it through even the day. The one thing you always told me to do was to, "Go get'em" every time we parted ways. It's because of you that I still "go get'em" daily at school, work, and life. I think about you often, every day, and I know that there is no, "Goodbye" between you and me, but only a, "See you later." Thanks for all of the guidance, sight seeing, lunch/dinners, and inspiration you gave to me. It's your turn to go get'em.
