August 18, 1955 – July 1, 2017
My Angel how I miss you so.
I think of you everyday
The pain of losing you is always with me
You are my inspiration
It’s been five years
So on July 3, a celebration of your life will be held at my mom’s place
You’ll never be forgotten as long as I live
Be at peace my baby
You were the best thing that ever happened to me
