  23. My dearest dearest dearest cousin, sister, best friend, soulmate, my confidant, ride or die, twin flame(the list goes on).. Thats how we would start off a birthday shoutout. I miss you soooooooo much it destroys my heart. I’m so mad you got called up to God. I truly am. I haven’t really had a conversation yet with him cause I’m devastated!! We were supposed to grow older together causing ruckus with the young folks. We were supposed to go on a vacation. We were supposed to life together into our old age. I’m so torn. The ONLY person I FaceTimed most is gone. The person I told EVERYTHING to is gone. My lifetime partner is gone physically from this world, and I am so lost. I am so lost without you. I envy those who get to move on with their loved ones, I envy those who have their person to talk to everyday while my conversations with you look different. I envy I envy I envy and I hurt so much cousin. Even though I see you in other things around.. and though it may bring me temporary comfort. I miss your voice.. I miss your warmth. The only person to unconditionally love me outside my mother. I wish I had 24 more hours with you. The endless laughs, tears, stories and memories we had together in this life time. Especially the most recent ones… Singing in my car, on the way to drop you off and we were laughing so hard we continued, in your drive way just singing away.. our last sleep over. Our last birthdays together even though you were in the hospital for mine you still got me something.. It burns me to think that was our last of our memories together. I’m so so sorry this happened to you cousin. I wish it wasn’t true. When it’s my turn, please please please be waiting for me. So we can rejoice and continue on eternally. I love you so so so so so much. Valissa Thyia Providence. Thank you for loving me And my babies who miss you so much as I miss you, with every fibre in me. I really hope heaven is real so we can be together again and for eternity this time. To know Valissa was a blessing. Someone so selfless, loving, caring, supportive, a daughter of God.. Rest in Eternal Peace my beautiful cousin. I LOVE YOU FOREVER
