My Leigh Love,
Today you would have been 23, but you're not. You are forever 20. I wanted to call you, I wanted to take you out to eat to celebrate your birthday extravaganza. I wanted to make jokes at your expense and laugh until my sides hurt. I wanted to go to Walmart and pick out some CRAZY gift that you would NEVER use, just to see the look on your face. Just so we could bust out laughing at how completely silly we are when we're together. But there is NO laughter, there is only silence. If I could have one wish, it would have been to hear your voice. I promise I wouldn't take you away from the place that needs you now, but I would want to hear you laugh. A big BOOMING laugh that would come down from the Heavens and spread throughout the world. If I could just have that one wish, everyone in the world would smile at the same time, even the ones who NEVER smile. You always had that affect on everyone. You were the only person who could make me laugh and smile and giggle no matter what!! This is for you my Daughter:
I wish you a Happy Birthday! I want to laugh when I think of you Today but its mostly I cried. I thought about you and tears rolled down my face. I'll think about your silly jokes and want to laugh so bad but I know its just a memory. I am glad from each and everyone one. As the days go by, I hope the tears begin to dry but everytime I say your name it always makes me cry. Time is supposed to heal me at least that's what everybody says but time is taking way too long. For each day that passes,I can not have you here is just another lonely day. My eyes are filled with tears. So, while you're up there waiting don't forget to save my place eventually I'll be there with a smile upon my face.
Happy Birthday my little girl!!!!!! You are loved FOREVER!
