Dear Cora

Dear Cora,

I've been trying to write this letter for several hours, and I don't have words to adequately express my feelings.

I miss you.

I am so very glad to have your sister and brother here. They bring me such joy. I just wish I could have seen you play with them. There were so many dreams I had for you. So many things I wanted to experience with you.

We're having a family portrait taken. I hope that it isn't too hard for me, on your birthday, when it's so very obvious our family isn't complete.

I know you have a great work to accomplish. Heavenly Father needed you for something very important, and I know you are busy doing that very thing. I hope that you are happy doing what you are doing.

Do you miss me?

As much as this hurts, being away from you like this, I would rather this than not having you at all. I long for the day when we can all be together. Yet I am content to wait.

I love you my darling girl. I miss you. But I am so glad that you are mine. I am so glad for the great promise I have that you will be mine forever and that I will have you in my arms again.

Remembering you always,
