“Becca, my sweet baby girl I miss you soooo much. You were taken too soon. I love you with all my heart and soul. I carry you with me (in a necklace) and look at your beautiful face every day. Losing you was the hardest thing I have ever had to go through. You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are grey. You’ll never know dear how much I love you please don’t take my sunshine away….”
