Mama, I miss you so much , you were the only constant in my life. You were my friend my confidant and protector.
You taught me how to be strong and I’m trying to be strong for you.
But all I do is think about all greats times we shared together…. My heart aches knowing I will never hear you voice ….No one could ever take you place… I know without a doubt we will be together again, give Papi a kiss for me…

I love you Mama
Your Daughter
