You were my best friend moreso after dad passed away. For 19 years it seemed to be you and me. We had our fights as all family members do but there isn't a day that goes by that I say I woudn't do it all again. I'd give anything for you back to talk to ,to watch/playgames with,to HAVE A HUG from you. Pictures and videos are only so much nothing can replace you!
Love you forever mama!
