I was so caught up in my own life to understand that losing u was the first time I had to stop and deal with emotions I had spent years repressing... even in ur absence u somehow were able to force me to become better...

I had the hardest time seeing the pain ur loss left on the people I loved. But, in that darkness, the light of ur legacy truly began to brighten. Ur daughter grew up to be a classy knockout, and ur son is a man that only honors the name u shared.

All that u loved, with that blessing, have become the people ive always need honored to know. So much has changed, I don't see them as much these days. But, i stalk them in this stupid social media thing...

Ur lucky u avoided it.. it's a real problem lol

Let light guide us all back together some day soon
