Rosita, gone to soon. Sorry I never met the woman you became. Just knowing you were escorted home by someone, "So very Special to me and to you. "Trust me." That even he was Speechless." That it all makes sense to me now. I feel like we were two ships, passing in the dark. Knowing that the little girl, whom looked like a little Navaho Indian papoose, that I got to know. Just dropped into my presence, in the nick of time. That God blessed the broken road. That led me straight to you. Sorry I didn't get to meet the woman. You turned out to be. Just knowing that you had a caring heart for others. Speaks volumes. Trusting you've seen the face of God. On your journey home." Trust me. Your spirit rest in the arms of an angel now. "Just know you made it girl. " Until we both see the Face of God, face to face. I'll always be forever grateful. I miss you girl."

In times like these all we can do is take our cares to the Lord in prayer. I miss you at every turn where memories were shared. I felt like I'd known you for a lifetime, that was cut to short. You'll be the north star that leads us the rest of the way.
