  1. I miss you so much…my heart aches every day. However, knowing you…you’re having a great time. I miss you my sweet angel. My BFCF. <3 I will try not to cry today or throw the curling iron out the window. I will eat mac & cheese with hotdogs every day. I will never forget our giggle fests or you throwing me down a book from your window even when we we're grounded…
    "Hey COL!! YOU WANT YOUR LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE BOOK?" It didn't matter what I said…my heart will never be the same. Now, I will have to look for two butterflies. I love you and miss you so much, Kathy. You were the sun in shine, the light of my life, my ying to your yang. Sorry it took so long for me to write this…
