21 years later & I don’t know why I am at a lost for words this year. This morning at 2:27am I was at the crash site. For the first time in 21 years. I’m sorry it took me so long. I didn’t think I was strong enough before. When I got there, I felt your presence. I felt your hand on my shoulder & I heard you tell me it’s okay. I teared up but didn’t want dad or Tracy to know because I wanted to feel it. To sit with it. To experience it. I can’t imagine the thoughts & feelings that were going through your head while you were spinning out of control. That’s really all I could think about when I was there & how such a beautiful, special & amazing soul could be taken away so tragically. Taken away at all. Although so much time has passed, the pain and sadness has not. You are missed in so many ways. I thank god for blessing me with your presence for the time you were here with us. To be able to say I remember you, your music, your pure soul, your smile, the love you had for your nieces & your big heart is something I will never take for granted. Please continue to look over us. I love you so much.

Missing you as always,

Your twin ❤️
