A DAUGHTER has shared the final of words of advice her mum ever said to her.
After her mum lost her battle with cancer, 18-year-old Hannah Summers was left with a letter to cherish throughout the rest of her life.

"I want you to be happy and use the gifts God has given you.
"You will be a wonderful nurse just as you are a wonderful person.
"Study hard in school, don't worry about a job."
The letter also advised Hannah to "be patient with dad", "talk to (her friends) often" and "use your common sense".
It closed with the emotional assurance that she will always be watching over her family.
The note closes: "Remember that I am still with you and still just as proud of you as I have always been ...
"Enjoy life and live each day as if it is your last because none of us know if today will be the last.
"And most of all remember that I Love You more than you will ever know!"
Earlier this week, Hannah, who is from Indiana, shared snaps of the moving letter on Twitter.
She said: "Before my mom passed she wrote us all letters. this is mine.
"Please hug your parents a little closer and never take them for granted because you never know when you could lose them. I love you momma."
In a matter of days, the poignant message has been shared more than 93,000 times and has racked up 296,000 likes.

"She tried to write me a letter on her last day and didn't have the strength. Cherish her words."
