To my warrior,

I cannot believe its been a year since I’ve lost you, as it feels like you were just next to me…like we were still fighting cancer yesterday. Some of my days are so long yet the year has been so short, my heart still aches for you at a level that comes from the depth of my soul …. I have failed you, in finding myself stuck, but am working hard on fixing that…. remembering that you loved everything around you with such joy and happiness, If only I could grow up to be like you and learn to see the amazing in all things. I loved that the most about you and the way your smile has touched so many. Thank you for choosing me to be your guardian. You carried me more than I could have ever imagined. I will be awaiting my next guardian job. Your footprint….your legacy….will be carried with honor.

(thank you God for blessing me with her, Thank you)


Your Guardian

    Never forget that she was so lucky to have you for a mom; no one could have fought harder, or been a better advocate than you. As I grow closer to facing this inevitable, I understand your heartbreak. I pray you find the peace you need – and remember, Neka is always with you in your heart, loving you still. Take care, my friend.

    Thinking of you Steph. I know these firsts are so hard. I love everyone of these pictures. Neka knows you love her. The loves like these last a long time as does the grief.

    Ohhh Steph. I am also stunned to know it’s been a year. Neka is always in our thoughts, she had such an amazing ride and you were such a great advocate for her. Your journey together is one of the most enlightening and inspiring ones around.

    It’s got to be so tough for you to go on without her physically there, but I bet her spirit is strong in your life, helping you embrace the new days ahead. We will never forget her, as I know you won’t either.
