On the evening of August 29th 2015, the night of the full moon, my Angel passed away in her sleep after a battle with severe infection in her blood. I am devastated beyond words...beyond anything I have ever felt. I brought her home when I was nine years old, raised her well with love, and made wonderful memories. Now, at almost twenty-two, it's hard for me to imagine life without Angel. The life I'm living now seems unreal.
Thank you Angel. You were sweet, quiet, and loving to a lonely girl. After transferring to a new school I found myself alone, depressed, and unable to tell time or subtract, despite being in elementary school. Knowing you gave me confidence; you gave me a reason to try. My inspiration to learn, to get tutoring, to get better, and to be responsible. I wanted to be worthy of your love and kindness, and so I worked hard. Now, after years on honor roll and many other high academic achievements, I can say I'm a far cry from the person I once was. And you helped kick start that. You taught me responsibility, patience, courage, and so much more. Thank you my Angel baby. I will always love you.
