    It's been just one day and I'm feeling your loss. You were such an amazing woman. You taught me strength and humor, how to enjoy beauty and art, how to be independent and to care deeply about things that are important to me and the importance of working hard and playing hard. You will live on in my heart and in my thoughts. I love and miss you.
