Do not cry for me, but instead find comfort in knowing that I am in my father‘s arms. Do not think of me as gone, instead think of all the good times we had. If you should ever need me, I will be in the calm of your heart. Ready to give advice, love and a reassuring hug. Remember that I travel with you always. Do not grieve for the loss of my body, but smile for the times and great memories we have shared together. I will always love you all.
