You never said, “I’m leaving”, you never said “goodbye”. You were gone before we knew it and only God knew why. A million times I needed you, a million times I cried. If my love could’ve saved you, you would never have died. Remembering you is quite easy, I do it every day. Missing you is the heartache that just never goes away. A true friend we can count on through the good and the bad. That handsome man, one of our greatest blessings is the man I call my Dad. -Kesi Mama XX.
