You will never know just how much you meant to me. God knew exactly what he was doing when he gave me you.  He knew that I would need a daughter and a best friend to help me through my divorce when your Dad left us. I couldn't have done it without you.

We've laughed and cried, had good times and bad together. Sometimes it wasn't easy. But we made it.

And when I didn't want to take a chance or step out on faith you would always say,. "Oh Mom, don't be like a cracked egg on the sidwalk!"

But I guess the memory that really sticks out in my mind is that hot summer day when you were about 6 years old and we were walking through the cemetery.  We came upon a shade tree and you said, "I'm so hot, let's stop under this shade tree and cool off."  Then you said, "Mom, when I die would you bury me under a shade tree so I won't get hot?"  Well my dear,  being an only child you always did get what you wanted most of the time, so I fulfilled your wish.  But you aren't under just any old shade tree, you are under that very same one we stopped at on that hot summer day.

I'm going to miss you. You had finally found happiness. You had some pretty dark teen years, but we pulled out of those and you were happier than I had seen you in years. I'm glad you found that inner peace that you felt that early morning of October 26th, 2005.

I only wish I could have been with you. I know that I will be someday.  But someday is too far away.   I love you.
