Mom I miss you so much. It may be 16 years since you left, but the wound still feels fresh. I know you didn’t want to leave me when I was only nine years old. I hope you are proud of me. For all the hard work I put in to get my Bachelors degree and now working on my Master’s. We miss you so much. I love you mom till we meet again!
