Happy 50th birthday, Haydee

Six years ago today, you celebrated your last birthday on earth; Seven years ago, you opened your house to my family while we transitioned from habitat to home.

I will never forget your warmth, goodness and radiance. You called us family, and you meant it. I will never forget how you upended your life to make ours easier, and I will be forever grateful.

Nic still speaks fondly of his Tia ChaCha. He should not remember you, but somehow, he does.

You may be gone, but you are never far from my thoughts and always in my heart. I love you, and I miss you. The world is a darker place without you.
