You were always there for all of us when we needed you. Your joy in our successes and your comfort in our failures never went unnoticed. You never failed to remember a birthday, a Christmas… and you never forgot that as kids we had empty pockets. Your love for me, your excitement at my achievements, your constant praise and admiration – it is all of these things that have made me a better person.
You have shown me what it is to be truly kind, to be honest to myself and to those around me. You never cared about being a lady – your tongue was as harsh as a cold morning wind – and in these traits I follow your footsteps, not trying to change how I act or what I say, because I know that all of these things come from you!
Thanks to you I followed my dream and am living it. Thanks to you, I know how to really care for others and their successes. Thanks to you, I know very little of jealousy. Thank you for being there always. Thank you for shaping me. Thank you for always being with me.
With all my love forever,
