    When visiting you that night with Brandy, you kept talking about a certain song “Eric Church”. So Brandy searched and found it. As she put the ear buds in your ears your ears, it was like you were in a different world (peaceful place). You listened to it three times. Well, we had no idea what it was until we got in the car and decided to listen to the word] to say, we both balled our eyes out driving home realizing why you wanted to hear that song so bad and felt like a lot was lifted from you.
    Mom, I made you a promise and I will always keep it.
    I am glad you are no longer suffering in pain. I know you are looking down smiling over your family. Miss you!
