On this day, we celebrate what would have been your 64th birthday. ❤️ You completed our January trifecta of bdays...the 5th, the 7th and the 9th. There must be something cosmic about that. You live on in your girls and in our hearts. 'Love is really the only thing we can possess, keep with us and take with us.' -Elisabeth Kubler-Ross"
