It broke our hearts to lose you and you did not go alone, part of us went with, you. You left us beautiful memories, your legacy, teachings and hard work, and we are proud of your accomplishments. Though absent, you are always at our side. Time mends broken hearts they say. If true, then we shall count the days until we meet again in glory.
