We have been together every day all day for the past nine months. You were stubborn. And we clashed sometimes. But I will miss you more then you will ever know. You got on my nerves I got on yours. But we made each other laugh all the time. And i will miss our conversations. We love you so much. And the girls will always know who you are always.
