You always gave to anyone and everyone even when I knew you didn't always have it to give. My life will never be the same without you but you will always be with me always in spirit. I feel you all around me, protecting me, helping me in every step I make. You will be my guardian angel for the rest of my days.

I'll never forget what a treat it was to spend the night at your house and hanging out with my precious cousin, Melanie.
