I've been held on a very high pedestal that in your eyes no one else could reach. Your love for me had no limits or conditions it was just very real and so complete. I thank God for Blessing me with your friendship for these past two years,and I thank you for always treating me not as an employee but one that you held so dear. I will forever miss kissing your cheek good morning and hugging you so tight good night. I will even miss that one finger pointed at me when you were making your point very clear with lips puckered so tight. Losing you is so painful,words can't come close to express. I fall asleep crying only to wake in the morning screaming" God don't let this be real !" Although the pain is overwhelming I know I wouldn't hesitate to do it once again to be Blessed to be with my pajama buddy all over again !! Please know in life I loved you and in death I love you still !! Forever your girl Tina xoxo
