    I often think of you, and it warms my heart while holding backs tears. You would be proud of me, just as I am of you. You gave your life so that we may be free. But oddly enough, I remain in bondage, a broken-hearted daughter who gains strength through knowing that you gave the ultimate sacrifice. Thank You??
