  2. I miss you so much, woman. It was a week ago yesterday and it stung so, so bad. Our first day without you was also our first Thanksgiving, and that means 1 month without you would make our first Christmas without you as well. Christmas was one of your favorite holidays, 4th of July being second. You loved your American Bald Eagles and backed our Troops wholeheartedly. Your spirit animal was definitely a wolf. Fierce, brave, and wouldn’t back down from a fight. I literally caught myself saying I needed to call you yesterday. This has already been an eternity but I know you will be waiting at the Pearly Gates with arms wide open and saying Hey, Hey, Hey! Come on in!” Take it easy, Mamaw.
