Dear, Nicki Garrett (nee: Oliverii), your body has left this Earth, but you are not gone. You remain a part of me and the world that surrounds all of us. I will keep safe and cherish the memories of your compassionate heart and your witty sense of humor that could bring me out of my worst mood. I will remember your creativity and dramatic flair. I will remember our singing sessions and promise to continue to belt out Evita and Tori Amos tunes. When I feel the sadness of knowing that we won’t be sharing breakfast and shopping dates. I will remember that you are at peace and that you no longer have to fight the demons that plagued you. I will remember and take comfort in knowing that your energy, spirit, and beautiful soul remain … with all of my love, Mom
