Good morning sister friend. Its another gloomy day here on earth. I know you are looking in the eyes of our lord and praying for your family and friends who miss you dearly and love πŸ’˜ you very much. A sad Monday morning. If you were here you would be doing all the things you loved to do for your family πŸ‘ͺ and friends ❀. We will see each other one day and catch up on what we missed. All the shopping., eating out and going to the movies. No more of those great times we spent together. . But we will see each other again. God bless πŸ™ you ❀ . Dear sister friend.

Mom,
What a paradox it is that a heart can shatter into a million pieces when we lose those we love with every fiber of our being . Yet we still keep breathing when I feel like I can’t. We are such morning people and couldn’t wait to get the day started you were the ray of sunshine β˜€οΈ no matter what kind of day it was. Your smile could light the room & your incredible energy it’s called a good vibe. Some people are born with it others not so much. You were the spark & joy that not only filled this home but that filled my whole life . I will carry that in me always. God has you with him and I have you in my heart & soul. Love you, love love you beyond words mom . πŸ™πŸ•ŠπŸ‘ΈπŸ»β€οΈπŸŒΉπŸ˜’πŸ’”

We been wanting to get together and go eat at our favorite restaurant. We didn’t get a chance to do that.
Last night in your honor I went there and ordered our favorite dish with an extra egg roll.
I sure miss you, sis. I loved our friendship. And most of all I got to talk to you and tell you that I love you. Until I see you again. Please watch over your family. They miss you like crazy.β€οΈπŸ™πŸ»β€οΈπŸ™πŸ»β€οΈπŸ™πŸ»β€οΈπŸ™πŸ»β€οΈπŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡

BOLD is a great way to remember MsTorres for me ... she never took anything from anyone ... her intentions was to teach you to do your best and do it for yourself... I was touched by her generous heart and reprimanded by her standards... I did get my CDA and she did ask me what took so long ... I never seen her back down from anyone or anything not even the hottest food that would turn her face to red ... BOLD is how I want to remember her because in my life it is a lesson I believe she tried to teach me in her office one day behind a closed door with tears in her eyes she was all about the love she has for her family & the compassion she has for her job and all of her co - workers ... she believes in everything being for a reason and be BOLD enough to make the change ... Thank you Ms Torres β™₯️ Maria

It still doesn’t feel real, Yaya. I come home every day still expecting to hear you say hi to me or ask me if I’ve eaten or just ask about my day in general. It’s not the same without you. I love and miss you with all my heart.

it's been many days since you left us to be with the lord πŸ™.. we miss you very much and the pain is hard. It's unfair this has happened to you. I don't understand why it happened. Your loss is hard to take. I wish you were here but the lord has called you home to be by his side. We love πŸ’˜ and miss you always and forever. God bless πŸ™ you and know you're in our πŸ’• always. Till we meet again. Love sister friend.

Mom

Nothing feels the same . The minutes on the clock are a constant reminder of time that stood still for me when you left. I go about each day but there is this void that is indescribable. Nothing is normal anymore . I pray I cry out to God but still the agony & this incredible pain is a fresh wound that I know will never heal. It’s such a cliche Time heals all wounds, yeah we hear that a lot but it’s just words & it doesn’t change the fact you were taken from me. If I could turn back time & circumference I would. If I could give up my soul to have you back I would mom. I need you & love you so much. You taught me so many things but this is a lesson I don’t know how to do is living without you. My precious mom you have my heart. πŸ™πŸ•ŠπŸ‘ΈπŸ»β€οΈπŸŒΉπŸ˜’πŸ’”
