As a young girl‚ you gave me the confidence to cope with new learning skills. At age three you found joy when I disassembled the dining room table‚ chairs‚ door knobs and appliances. You showed me compassion with stray animals we took in and cared for.
Later as a growing teen‚ you spent time with my math struggles yet helped me seek out my lost hamster Mr. Carter‚ with a pocket full of Cheerios. As strong and stoic as you were‚ your soul laid bare when you shed tears for your beloved Beagle Snoopy‚ after he was killed by a car.
Today as an adult with children of my own‚ I have patience and love to share with my three children‚ four step-children‚ two nieces‚ a nephew‚ a grandchild‚ two dogs and seven cats. Though our distance grew with time you will always be a part of us all.
