Dora I remember the day when we were at work and how I slid across the worker tables. If I did a second later I would have gotten caught. Thankfully I didn't. Want to thank for not being a friend but thank for being the shoulder you cry on. You were a very vibrant woman who I admired. Not afraid to stand up for what was right. I am starting to do that myself but we are not here for me. Just wanted to say I love you and miss you already. Thanks for telling me that I am a wonderful father. I love you and I will never forget which you and what you done to make me the person I am today. ❤️ 🌹
