    Vitto,<br />
Thank you for being the most real friend a person can have! We have tried on many "hats" together; but, the parent "hat" has been the most challenging and rewarding for both of us. I once again want to take the opportunity to thank you for the amazing gift of Jada Ruth that you gave me almost 12 years ago.<br />
She is the most gifted person that I have ever known, I feel truly privileged to be her mother and forever grateful that she has known the much sought after father/daughter bonding love that you have given her Vitto, as that love lasts' forever. May God bless you and may I feel your spirit around our beautiful daughter always. <br />
Love, Darcie
