It's a terrible thing to lose a parent, especially when you're young. I have had so many questions that, especially for a daughter, only my Mom could answer. I talk to her quite a bit but sadly she doesn't respond (although I think she has, once -- different story for a different day). It's been a long time but I still imagine what she would say.
Here's a picture of us. I was probably somewhere between 1 and 2 years old. I treasure this old photo. She was so beautiful!
