to the women who made miracles happen and made me.
the one who showed me how to be classy while trashy.
the one that taught me to be the women i am today.
you taught me to be tough no matter what happened and that there is a greater outcome in the long run.
you taught me to have such a kind soul no matter how bad some one treated me or how bad this world is.
you taught me to forgive, to forgive as many times as i think is needed until i realize i’ve given too many chances but even then you gave me such a good heart to see only the good in people.
you taught me my worth in this world and i’ll never forget that.
you were one of my best friends.

i miss you so much
your little tantrums when something wasn’t the way you wanted it.
our drives to work in the morning.
going to bingo with you.
going to all the family/neighborhood parties with you and being your little side kick.
sitting in the front yard with the family.
i miss being “the baby up your butt all the time”
most importantly i’m going to miss you singing “you are my sunshine”

you won’t be there physically to see me grow more as a person or won’t be there when i get married or have kids but i know you and dad will be watching over me proud because you guys made me and made those miracles happen.

i love you so much and i hope you realized that before you left me.
i didn’t say it all the time but i knew you already knew i did.
you’re with the love of your life now, my dad tell him i said hi and i miss him so much.

i love you mommy. <3

Mum I wish I could call you and tell you about my day. I wish I could FaceTime you and see your face. I wish when I went home I would see you sitting on the couch. I didn’t realize how much I would talk to you until you weren’t there for me to talk to anymore. I miss seeing your smile. I miss hearing you say you love me when I’d leave the house. I didn’t realize that you actually became my best friend. So not only did I lose my father this year. And you my mother, but I lost my best friend as well. You’re not there for me to go shopping with. You’re not there to give Cannon candy. You’re not there for Aria to get use to you. I know that you’re always with me but it hurts so much to know that I won’t see you for a while. I miss you making me feel better when I’m sad or feel mad. I miss joking around with you. I miss sitting in the front yard with you. I was going to take you to Las Vegas next year for your birthday because I know how much you wanted to go. I hate that I wasn’t able to do the things you wanted to do. I am happy I got to spend as much time with you as I did.
I will miss you so dearly. I love you so much. I’ll see you again mommy. Tell daddy I miss him too!
