There was just no way to be sad when you were with morgan. I remember that she brightened some of my darkest days and had me laughing. I know we're all going to miss her. I know there was nothing she loved more in the world than her baby and I have never seen a better momma. I know how much you loved your momma and missed your brother you were always telling me, and I'm sure by now you have probably found him in heaven. You had so much love to give to the world I just wish we would have had a little longer with you girl .
