You were Myme and I was yours am overwhelmed by all the love pouring out, and I wish that your love takes his soul ahead to where it is going...like a wave ...I am thanking everyone here for all the messages. I hope you can understand I can't answer all (what you know me for), but be assured I am reading the comments and am taking that love and support. And now usually I would show this post to @akhillmishraa to ask his opinion..something to add or clarify...now I can't anymore.”
