|You brought out the best...
...in everybody around you in all kinds of circumstances. Your not being here doesn't mean you're not with me. In the most beautiful way, you changed the course of my life. Now that you are not physically here, my root has been shaken. Wait until you see what work comes out of me now. I feel your presence behind me. I love you with all my heart. Thank you for believing in me to the extent that you did.
