To my Mom and Dad

I know this has been really hard on you so I've decided to dedicate a song to each of you. Whenever you miss me, just listen and sing and I'll be right there with you 😊

Mom, obviously Jann Arden "Good Mother"! We have had a million sing alongs to this song and it always chokes me up. "I've got a good mother and her voice is what keeps me here". One of the only reasons I have been able to go on this trip is because of your guidance and support. If I ever get scared, I will close my eyes, think of your smile and hold your hand so I can go on. Everywhere I go, you will be there too.

Dad, Neil Young "Old Man". "Old man take a look at my life, I'm a lot like you were". We have had many battles in our day, but my strength and perseverance are certainly traights I can thank you for. Though our goodbye was short and sweet, that doesn't mean my love is. Every time I see a breathtaking sunset, a bird that's really neat-o or a Dad holding his daughters hand... I will think of you.

I'll miss you both so much more than you know, thank you for making me who I am! Don't cry, just smile and I'll see you soon okay? And tell Oma I'll stay safe, I don't want to see anymore tears from that beautiful woman when I get home.

xoxo Princess Sparkle

P.S. now we have a new dot on our world map!! eeee!!

Tears and Smiles
Krys and Richard are obviously very special people to have raised a daughter like you! I know I've just scratched the surface with our times together to get to know you. I knew the first time I met you that Tyler had a "special" girl. Throughout this adventure, be sure we are all here cheering you on to complete this dream that I am so honoured to share virtually with you. Where many dream to do great things, few actually make it happen! I am so very proud of you and Tyler for stepping outside that comfort zone and into the chance of a lifetime. You are creating memories to last a lifetime. Lift your head high, hike forward and live the dream you've dreamed together. Much love and talk soon.....xoxo Patti
