    My dearest Peepa, it’s been a month and your loss is unmeasurable. Although I know you’re at peace and happy in my Mom’s arms, I still keep waiting for your call. It breaks my heart, you were too young, and the kiddos that loved you so much will not benefit from your sweet and funny charm. Your legacy is something amazing and I thank you for sharing your life with me and my family, loving me like your own. I will cherish the knowledge and lessons you have taught me and will continue down that path. I am a better person for knowing you and you brought so much joy and happiness into our lives. Through all the ups and downs, you were a fighter and warrior for life in true fashion like your ancestors were forced to be – ogichidaa . Dance in the stars and smile down on us, Mr. and Mrs. Jones. We’ll miss you, until we meet again. Chi-miigwech. Gizhawenimin. Gi zaagi’in. Gejawabamin meenawa. Baamaapii xoxo
