Nora, I'm missing you the most right now. My mom hasn't been coming into the office as much lately and you were the person who would come with me so I wouldn't be alone and today is one of those days. I'm by myself here and you are gone. Our thing was to sit here and watch cooking videos just to get hungry and contemplate what to eat for lunch. Then you telling me "eat a salad girl, you're getting too fat!" lol Today we would probably talk about Xmas and what kind of gifts you wanted. I remember the last day you were here, when I called my mom to tell her you needed to see a doctor because I knew something was wrong with you and to find out later it was something that couldn't be fixed. From that point on, I've missed you so much. I missed you before you left this earth. I knew that I wasn't going to see you everyday and you weren't going to call me anymore to say "get up lazy, you got to open up". You and Gino are very lucky because you two are living in paradise with our Lord along with Grandmother and Grandfather. I hope you knew how much I love you! I will forever cherish the moments and the laughs we had together. I will never forget your face, laughter, or smile! I love you and miss you so much! See ya later! xoxo
