To my Godfather:

I pray that as you are resting with our Lord, you will watch over me from above, until the day we meet again. I deeply regret not having the relationship with you that I wanted, but I know that God needed you now, and some day, you and I will meet again, and all will be perfect. Until then, I will miss you.

With all my love,
