You are the reason I am who I am today. You are my example of strength and passion. You loved life so much and you have passed that joy and commitment to live each day I am given as if it were my last.
I miss you so much and I look forward to the day we can be together again. Until that time, I will be honoring your memory by making you proud of who I have become in spite of my earlier efforts to mess things up in a big way. I will raise your grandchildren and great-grandchildren to remember you as a woman of dignity and honor. And I will run. For you.
