There’s a reason why when we went to Disneyland, little girls kept asking if you were a princess. There was a light about you, and anyone that was lucky enough to meet you, to be in your presence, and even luckier to be loved by you, saw it, felt it & was drawn to you. You lived unapologetically, you loved so all encompassing, you hyped me up, sent me memes when you knew I needed a laugh, and you did that for everyone you loved. The last time I spoke to you we were on FaceTime and I told you about my recent changes in my life, you showered me with love as you always did, and then scolded me when I told you that I hadn’t eaten that day and wasn’t sleeping enough, and I laughed and told you “God! You’re always being my mom!!!” because that was you, you were a nurturer. You loved hard, your sense of humor was untouchable, your passion was electric, and the work you did on this earth, the lives you touched, the visibility you brought to this world, your beautiful words of strength and standing firm for what you believe… that will be your legacy. Rest now @mamacax , we will keep fighting for you 🖤💔 (& yea, I’m gonna bloom & make you proud 🌷)
