I remember you being like a second mother to me. I remember how much you cared how you would sit at the table booth during lunch with us. I remember you calling me during work to ask me how I’m doing when I had no idea you we’re going through something so devastating. And I remember I told you I’ll call you a week before you died and I forgot. I’m sorry and I miss you so much. I wish had all the photos we took together. But thank you for always being there for me and always believing /having high expectations of me. I love you
