I still miss hearing the phone ring, and her being on the other end of the line, and always positive and cheerful.

When those we love have left this earth, we still can feel them near. We'll see a picture, hear a song, and it's just like they are here. And when we call upon our faith, when we believe and trust, we know the ones we care about are always close to us.
