Dearest Mai,



I found your picture today, remember taking this one? That's you there in the middle. I miss you, you know. You were so kind to us when we came to visit. You never met us but you treated us like your own sisters. I remember that awesome feeling I had meeting you and your sister for the first time and finally knowing what it was like to have cousins! Mom would read us the letters you wrote but it wasn't the same. You have a heart of gold, girl. Though we had a slight language barrier, and a cloud of bug spray between us, we had one of the best times of my life together! I had a family, and you became a sister to me. I promised I would come home to visit, but I haven't yet. And I'm so sorry I missed you. Momma called today. She said you left us because of ovarian cancer. I wish I had known. I wish I could have been there for you and hold your hand. I wish you could have been here with me, maybe you'd still be here. Take care up there. I'll be home soon.



With Love,

Hieu
