    Your skin always smelled like baby powder. When you cooked, you always hummed. You always gave me apple juice and let me sleep in your bed. You taught me how to sew with your sewing kit. You always smelled my head for a long time. You taught me how to cook rice. You never got mad at me. The smallest things about you are the ones I miss most. I miss you, lola. Thank you for inspiring me to always look to God. I love you forever.
