    Mommy today is just one more day closer til I hear and see your beautiful face again. I miss you more today than yesterday. I know your safe in the arms of the Lord but it still hurts to not see or hear you. I miss your kisses and you calling me sweetie peetie and me calling you chicky wicky. I love you more than any words can express and any action can show. Maybe you will come visit me in my dreams and we will be able to talk or pray together. I will always be looking for you in every thing I do. I love you mommy I love you. See you later Chicky Wickey!!

    Mommy. Thank you for giving me my wings to fly. I promise you that I will continue to make you proud of me. I will always remember what you told me before you left, that God created me special and because of that the enemy would always seek to destroy me, but to remember that God has already fought my battles and I am justified. You told me to raise my head in pride, never to question or doubt who I am ,no matter what the enemy says about me. Everything that I do, I will do in rememberence and In honor of you. Im finally going to write that book and I'm going to dedicate it to you.
    Juan told me to tell you thank you for bringing me into this world, he says you gifted him with the most precious gift he could ever been given. The kids told me to tell you thank you, that because of you they have me. They all have your sense of humor, they all love to write. Thank you for the many talents and gifts that you passed down to us. We will carry you on,, you will continue to live through us and in us. We love you, you are an Angel now, and we know you are watching over us. By they way, if you see daddy up in Heaven please tell him that I have loved him all of these years, please tell him that I hope ive made him proud of me and I hope that I have carried the Dalton name with the dignity and pride that it deserves, tell him that I know he has been watching over me all of these years and even though I'm a grown woman of 48 years, I will always be his baby girl. Tell gramma Annabelle that I am so proud to carry on her name, tell grampa Loyce that even though I didn't get to meet him here on earth that I can't wait to meet him in Heaven. Give grandma Christina a big hug for me, tell her I miss her rice and beans and the smell of coffee in the morning. Tell her that I'm finally speaking Spanish and can't wait to catch up with her in heaven. Im miss you dearly, but you are at peace now and I am comforted knowing that you are safe at home in Heaven.
    Untill we meet again, love you always mommy,
    Anna

    This is my last goodbye to you, I already have missed you dearly, our long talks I’ll never forget your patience with me, when I ranted and raved about life in general lol you would stay calm, your faith was admirable and I remember the little song we used to sing together, how far is heaven? Now you know it was never far from you, I love you sis , God has gained another Angel,
