I have such mixed emotions with this announcement. I am so happy that you will be moving on with your life. That is what we all are aiming for. But, I will miss you so much. You have helped me through some very hard times. You have always lifted my spirits, raised my hopes, and given me strength. Most important you have given me love. For this I am in your debt forever. The only way I can hope to repay you is by taking your love and spreading it to all who are in need. Always know that you are loved.
As you have stated many times before, here is a little prayer just for you.......God Bless You!
