I loooove you! This is something we said everyday to each other. I still say it to you. I may not hear you repeat it back to me anymore, but I still feel it in every moment of every day.

You are not only my mother, but also my best friend, my pillar of strength, my partner in crime, my hero, my idol and my heart. I aspire to be more like you in every single way.

Although the next chapter in our lives will take us on separate paths, I will bring you along in my heart. I hope I make you proud.

Love your baby.......Faye
