The emptiness in my heart will never be filled, but the memories of us will last forever. God had a plan for us. He knew that I needed a guardian angel to watch over me, and only you, Jessica, could fill that position. Life without you will be hard, but at least I have the comfort of knowing that you, my little angel, will be watching over me. I feel blessed that I have known such a special love as ours. I miss you,
