I met the love of my life when I was in my early twenties. She stood by my side no matter what I was going through and supported me. Ma was a beacon of strength when I felt I was at my weakest moment and pulled me through when I didn't know what was next. I thought I had forever with her; that we'd grow old and have so much longer than what we had. My life ended the day that she was taken from me. From everyone that met her and loved the woman that she was.
Alice was a woman that knew my pain. She could see it on my face and knew what I was going through after the loss that shattered my entire world. No one would ever take the place of the woman that owned my heart. But, I know that Ma would want me to be happy and have someone in my life. I may not ever be able to give her my heart but I know that she's the only one that would be able to make me feel even a fraction of what Ma made me feel for so many years.
