I\'m never gonna get over you taking your leave—or should I say you getting called home. 💗 Like I told you the Saturday prior to that day—I wish you saw you through my eyes or mom and dad\'s eyes or Stephen\'s or the kids\' eyes or so many that admired you. Your family more then adored and needed you. I love you, Twinner.
