    I Miss You.

    I love my mom so much. She is forever in my heart and always on my mind. There isn't a day that passes where I don't think about her: her laugh, her smile, her voice, her hugs, her silly faces, her hilarious jokes, her eyes, her kisses, and her love. She was unlike anyone in the...
