    Rynita, I’m gonna miss your videos taking us through your cancer journey. I’m gonna miss you calling me “Auntie” and we weren’t even blood related. I’m gonna miss seeing your radiate smile and beautiful eyes. Sweetheart, take your rest. You fought a good fight. You will be sorely missed. I love you babygirl!
