7 years...you remain ever present in my mind, heart , and soul. You continue to impact my life on a daily basis, from the many lessons you taught me, to the way you always believed in me even when I didn't believe in myself.
The love that you gave me during our short time together was enough to last me a lifetime, which is a blessing that I am truly grateful for! I just miss you so much. I will always try to look for the bright spots on this dark day and today you are it, forever my always. #727
