A poem shared by her son:
I never left you; I watch you every day, I am always very near; I know deep in your heart you realize I am here. I watch while you sleep in your bed at home. I hear you when you speak to me when you are on your own. You cannot understand the reason why I have gone; but I will never leave you though you may not see me. We share an unbroken bond that will always be. Death will not keep us apart, for our love is forever. Just remember me in your heart, and one day, we will be together. Live your life and live it full; don’t waste a single day. Remember, I am always with you, every step of the way. I never left you.
