My heart is so heavy yet I can rejoice to know you’re resting in peace. I’m gonna miss our conversations about Waco, Texas and when I would see a strange flower I would take a picture of it and show you the next day and if you didn’t know what it was we would google it and find out all about it. Im gonna miss the laughs we shared. I will always carry you in my heart.
