My Treasure

Dear Ava,

This was supposed to be for you. I bought it for your 4th birthday, which I never got to give you. Once you had left us, I gave the rest of your birthday gift to your mom, but I kept this for myself. I needed something of you to keep with me, and I wore it until it turned my neck green, and then I displayed it next to your photo.


I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately, and I miss you so much.

See you later, Ava. I love you.
