  • Mom, I love you so much, I wish we forgave each other sooner, but I am glad I did, I will never forget the last time I saw you when we said goodbye for the dinal time in person. I walked to the elevators and as I looked back, while I was in tears, you were still standing at the door watching with tears in your eyes. I am struggling with so many memories, good and bad, I would do anything to go back in time to hug you again. You’re the most special person I ever knew. You always had a very cheerful vibe about you. You wrote letters to me through some of my old notebooks when I was in my early teens that I found when I was in my early 20’s, you always thought of the best things to do. I will cherish everything you gave me, you’ve given me alot. I can’t handle loosing you, my heart is shattered. I wish I could have said more when I got to speak to you in your last few moments of life but I was so saddened and shocked that all I could say was that I loved you you multiple times. I keep breaking down over and over. You cared about everyone so much, you are the most selfless person I knew. I live and miss you so much, you have no idea! I can’t wait to see you again. “88” Mama bear
    Your beloved Angel Bear
