Dear, Nina.. I just hope you know that I love you very much & you were an amazing person in my life. You always helped me & always had my back. You were like another mom to me & I so happened to be blessed with an amazing one like you. I have so many memories of us together. I remember one time, you took me to McDonald’s & I got a happy meal, they gave me a boys toy & I was upset so you went back & made sure I got that girls toy. I had never seen you so defensive, in the end it was something to laugh about, I then realized you’d do anything to make me happy. You helped with my homework, you played restaurant with my fake food, you saved all my colored pictures. You did so much more. You were indeed a blessing & one of a kind. You were so beautiful, with a great smile. You were adventurous & you loved taking risks. You were outgoing & very loving. There’s no one like you. It pains me to think that you’re gone but I know one day we will meet again. I’m just happy you’re no longer sad & in pain. Now.. I have another angel watching over me. You’re the best kind. I love you. -from Alexia or your sunshine

Until We Meet Again My Friend
Those Special Memories Of You
Will Always Bring A Smile
If Only I Could Have You Back
For Just A Little While
Then We Could Sit And Talk Again
Just Like We Use To Do
You Always Meant So Very Much
And Always Will Do To
The Fact That Your No Longer Here
Will Always Cause Me Pain
But Your Forever In My Heart
Until We Meet Again.
I Love You And It Was A Blessing
To Have You In My Life.
