From the pen of a child

This condolence note I received when my mom passed away has a special place in my heart. It was written by Hannah, the eight year-old granddaughter of the owner of the foster home my mom lived in. Hannah came with her mother to visit several times a week and got to know the ladies well. She read to them, brought water, talked with, drew pictures, and generally entertained them. She was surprised when my mom passed away, after a very short decline. 

Her grandmother said she had lots of things to tell me, so she took several pieces of paper and wrote down her thoughts. 

 Hannah is a pretty special young lady, don't  you think?
