"Dearest Cooper, You saved me. You brought light into my darkness and I’m not sure what I did to deserve you. You loved hard and had a gentle soul. You captured the hearts of many but you had mine fully. The world is a little darker without you here, but I know I’ll be seeing you again. Thank you sweet Cooper and see you soon, Mama"
