You would be 65 today. I can’t seem to wrap my head around the fact it’s been 4 years since you passed. There is not 1 day that passes that I don’t miss you. I find myself wanting to call you to tell you about the kids or stop by to hug your neck! Momma I miss you so bad!!! I wish I could just hear you laugh one more time or for you to tell me you “love love love” me! Until we are together again, happy birthday and I love you!
