Thank you for being like a mom to me for all these years. You were the first to teach me how to put up my hair, how to cook spaghetti, how to speak our own secret language. You made me my first real thanksgiving meal (and I know that every Thanksgiving will never be the same without you). You taught me what it felt like to be loved as family.
I’ll always remember you with your bright smile and golden hair…Remember that really fun chat we had at Disneyland? And for my sweet 16 you threw me a surprise party and I completely ruined my cake. You got me that Nintendo DS I really wanted when I was in middle school, and you were so much fun when we would sit around playing the best family board games. When I slept over at your house you woke up early for us to make homemade pancakes. Sometimes when I’m feeling lonely while traveling, I would try to find restaurants that has some of the dishes you make, but they never come close. We never got the chance to go to Vegas again, and I was really hoping you could be at my graduation in 2 years when I get my law degree. I wished I had the opportunity to tell you how much you meant to me before you passed away. Life feels more lonely without you in ways I never imaged.
I’ll be like a big sister to your daughter so you’ll never have to worry.
I hope you’re having a great time in heaven.
