Dear godmother ,
The day you left and gained your wings my heart just broke in two I wish I had the chance to say goodbye but Heaven needed you.
You left me with the memories and I love you dearly still no matter how much time goes by you know I always will .
You were a very special person with kindness in your heart and the love we had together grows stronger now we’re apart.
I know I cannot bring you back although I wish it everyday but a piece of me went with you the day you went away.

Love your godson❤️🌹
Jesus Felix
