I miss you so much! Every picture that I take now I think about what you said, "It's all about the light!" I think that's probably true in life as well. Then I hear mama say that we just have to look for it. I am so glad that you are not suffering anymore, but the selfish part of me just misses you. Give mama a hug for me, and now you can quit kicking that can.
