    I love you Mama… I miss you so much! I am still having a hard time processing this entire month. It feels like a nightmare that I can’t wake up from. I can’t even believe I am writing a note to you on this page. I don’t know how to say goodbye … you are my heart. So I will leave it at… until we see you again.
