I will miss your cute little voice and the sound of your laugh. Your personality and spunk gave me life. And although you thought my name was "Oh Leo," I didn't mind one bit. You were the most grateful and loving woman I think I've ever met. I will miss bringing you maple donuts now and again. Eat one up in heaven for me. Love always.
