    I will miss our conversations, and joking back and forth. You always went out of your way to make me laugh, or smile when you would call me while I was in the hospital. You, along with my partner, were always my biggest motivators. I know now that all I have to do is look up towards the sky at night, and you will be the brightest shining star. You will be truly missed.

    I think about you every day. I wish you could tell me more stories about you and papas journeys and your flamboyant life. I wish you could be here to listen to my aspirations because I think you would love them. I miss you so much Mimi. I love you, peeps.
