Morning Dito ( I promise Dito every morning to say morning and at night good night)
Mommy heart is broken, I feel lost, alone, and empty. It's been a week tonight around 7:40
My life isn't the same
But this isn't good bye it's see you later
You are in my heart and will always be there
Love you Dito
