    It was a beautiful day, Natalie had gone shopping with Missy in tow. Natalie and I had been friends a few years now and shopping was my thing. So the girls had made their selections and taken them to the counter. As the clerk rang up all the goodies she asked “ How would you like to pay for this?” And with out skipping a beat Missy said….
    “Charge It”. I received a call from Natalie informing me that all those months in the womb, Missy had been listening. And perhaps I shouldn’t say certain things around Missy anymore.

    Missy…Your life was a blessing, our memories a treasure. You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.
