I can only thank you for everything

My dears,

My sudden departure unfortunately did not allow me to tell you everything I would have liked to.
And yet, no matter what words I use, I will never be able to express all the gratitude I feel in my heart. Many were the years of togetherness and I cannot remember a single moment I did not get support and affection from all of you.
I was always made so welcome that I can only thank you for everything you did for me, and apologize for leaving so suddenly. I hope you understand the circumstances that prompted such an urgent departure. To be honest, I would like to have enjoyed the last moments of your warm company to the full, but all the formalities involved in the journey stopped me from being with you for the amount of time I would have wanted to and thanking you personally for every thing you gave me, hugging and looking each and everyone of you in the eye… I am far away now, thousands of miles stand between us, but I want you to know I have carried you all with me.
You live and travel with me in the deepest and warmest corner of my heart.

I miss you all. Love
