One of the most influential people in my life passed away. I just found out an hour ago.
I don't know how I'll live without you here on this earth. You were so much more than a caretaker to me as a child. You were my 2nd mom. You loved me like I was your 5th child despite my red hair. ;) Now you are in heaven with your beloved Charlie. I'm happy for you - that you two are reunited, that your suffering has ended and that you are home. I'm sad for me and your family still here on earth as we try to navigate the world without you.
I love you always.
