After 2 years its still hard knowing that I cant tell you that I love you, but I know that you are among your family in Heaven and are waiting for us to come join you. Watch over all of us here and know that we missed you and love you, but you are never forgotten in our hearts. Each day we can reflect back and remember what your legacy was as you taught us so much.
