Will definitely miss running into her and visiting. Remember all the good memories of her when ever you think of her and smile. this is what I will do. Love leaves a memory that nobody can steal.and when someone U love becomes a memory…that memory becomes a treasure…that is why God gave us memories. Let your family and friends help you thro this hard time…and God be with each one of you.
