A year has passed and I miss you more and more each day. Your beautiful smile and unending love can never be replaced in my heart. If only I could see you one more time and talk with you, even in my dreams I would tell you what a wonderful mom you are and how much you mean to me. I would have so much to share and you would be so proud. I love you mom and I know you are watching over all of us. Your Sunshine,
