From April 23, 2015
It seems hard to believe that six years have passed. It seems hard to believe that the pain is no longer as sharp, the grief no longer as dark.
It seems hard to believe that we have all continued to exist, to live, but you have not.
Today, I want to tell you that though the holes in our world have shrunken and the tears have dried, you are still in our hearts. Our memories may begin to fade, but you will not be forgotten. Our grief has stepped aside for joys and in those joys we think of you and the happy memories we shared. Each year that passes, the grief will lessen. But you will never lessen in our minds.
Today, I want to tell you that I miss you. That we all miss you. And, that we always will. There was so much life ahead of you and for as long as I live, I will always grieve for the years that should have been for you.
Rest in peace, knowing you will forever be in our hearts.
