I remember when I first met you, all smiles and giggles. Our families are the best of friends, your mom and dad are my second parents. I remember spending the night and being scared by the bear rug that hung and the wall and you telling me it was ok, he was there to protect us. I miss you greatly and will be there for the kids if they need me and for the rest of my extended family.
