  7. Nan,

    I know we had not seen each other for some time with life seemingly become chaotic; but I also believe I was taking mortality and life for granted. I never thought of a world without you, believing that you were immortal; forever walking through my life on the side lines; forever headstrong, forever unyielding. My naivety of your mortality believed I still had time to say goodbye and that I love you and for this, I am truly sorry. I hope you can forgive me for all the time, laughs and tears missed, but I know you will…..

    Love you Nan.

    Love forever, Michelle
