Its been a month today since the Lord to you to your eternal. I miss you so much and love you so much. My love for you is greater than the universe and heaven combined. I am finding it very difficult to accept that I can no longer kiss you good night and tell you how much I love you, and have pleasant dreams. Than you would reach up with your weak little arms and wrap them around my neck and tell me ” my love you are my guardian angel I love you too” and than give me a kiss.. God Bless you and rest in peace my darling angel of a mother. God Please take good care of her until we meet again. xox hugs your daughter Stella
