    "Oh mom there's so much to tell you.... But I'm sure you already know as your watching over us. I miss you terribly and I'm trying to be strong. I've been dreaming of you... And in my dreams I save you. Then I wake up and reality hits me in the face. I do realize that life and death is beyond our physical world and it's not up to us. I need some advice on some things so I just have to ask myself... What would my mom say... Then it falls out of my mouth.. oh ya that's what I should do. So I teach the lessons you taught me and lead by example. Thank you mom. The Last lesson you taught me was to love hard forgive and forget.... It's only stuff ... Until we meet again"
