Audrey, you will always be in our thoughts and in our hearts.
We love you!

August 11, 2023

It is not necessary to see the calendar to know that a very important date related to you is approaching. My heart tells me, my mind, my state of mind, the tears in my eyes. It's just that your birthday is coming up and I still miss you so much.

How not to miss your smile, your laughter, your sense of humor, your perfume, the sweetness of your skin, your arms around my neck, your head on my shoulder.

Nothing and no one can fill this void that you left from the day you left. All your birthdays that have passed since this day are painful. I don't know how we were able to survive your departure, how we can simply survive. Today because it's your birthday, another day because it's going to be another tragic anniversary, and then other dates will come that will remind us that you're no longer here and that we're never going to celebrate anything together again.

I would have liked watching you grow old. Watching you become a mom, a grandmother. Seeing you live a long life full of happy moments, enjoying everything that life offers us. I miss you and it's not just a saying.

I hope you are not alone, that you're surrounded by the beings who loved you in life and who still love you now that they left with you.

Happy birthday my daughter. I hug you and kiss you spiritually.

Your mom.
