The Pink Dress we bought for you at the hospital gift shop, that you never got to wear, is still hanging in the closet. I didn’t expect you to go so soon. I wish we had more time to be with you and for you to wear that pink dress. I love you and miss you so much! Fly high my angel and I will see you again one day.
Love you always,
Your daughter, Elaina
