Dear Parents

I did not die young.  I lived my span of life within your body and within your love.  There are many that have lived long lives and have not been as loved as I.  If you would honour me, then speak my name and number me among your family.  If you would honour me, then strive to live in love, for in that love I now live.  Do not doubt that we will meet again.  Until that happy day I will be with God and wait for you.
