It has only been 17 days since you went to Heaven but it seems like a lifetime ago. Daddy and I miss you more than life itself. We miss your sweet smile, your contagious giggle and your endless huggy huggles. Daddy really misses coming home from work and you greeting him at the door with your "D-A-D-D-D-Y!!!!!!!" and huge hugs and kisses. Everyone is so sad without you here. We know you must be so happy in Heaven. How many flowers did you pick today? Did you share them with Jesus. I bet He loved your little bouquet you gave to him. Did Jesus's Mommy have on a blue dress today or white? I bet you love the sparkly crown she wears on her head.
We are trying so hard to adjust to having you in Heaven. Grace really misses you calling her "BETTY" and how you would put your hand on your hip when you would say it. Mary is very quiet and likes to sit and think about Heaven. Lucy is VERY busy . She does not like to sit still. She has been sleeping with one of your favorite friends every night. This makes her feel very close to you. Emilia wrote you a very long letter telling you how much she misses you. She is going to mail it to Heaven so you can read it. Gemma, your virtual twin, partner in crime and best friend misses you terribly. She walks around the house looking for you. Even though she knows you are in Heaven she still keeps looking for you. She could not stop holding your hand, rubbing your heart and kissing your head at your funeral. Surely you felt her love. Did you hear her whisper in your ear how much she loves you and she can't wait to come to Heaven and be with you again? She is trying so hard to be brave but she still cries every night for you. She says she wants to remember you forever. Please give her a special hug from Heaven tonight.
I know you see all the wonderful things that are happening in the world now because of YOU! You had such an enormous purpose in your 6 short years of life on earth. You never complained and you did Gods Will with such grace and elegance, like a real princess. You suffered more in 6 years than anyone should suffer in a lifetime. You always had a smile on your face and a hug to share. You taught the world how to love, live and believe in God. God used you , a little orphan with a broken heart who did not have one possession in the world except your little panda bear, and He gave you the one thing you wanted the most , a family . Now He has made the world your family.
Have you seen all the good deeds that are being done in your memory? Or everyone all around the world wearing your Princess Tiaras? Doctors, Nurses, Runners, Surgeons, Girls, Moms, Dads, Flight attendants, Actors, people of all different religions all united in your memory. People paying it forward in your memory. Kindness and love are spreading everywhere! All because you showed the world what love really is. Even though your little body was so weak your spirit was So STRONG.
You would be so proud to know that Mommy and Daddy are going to do everything we can to help other orphans have a family. We are going to help other orphans get the heart surgeries they need before it is too late for them. Every child should know the love of having their own family.
All because of YOU sweet princess the world is changing , one heart at a time.
We Love You More Teresa!
