We Survived.

We survived the first year of sadness, anger, and despair. The year where the truth crushed us. We survived all the first holidays, memories and birthdays passed without your presence. The year where everything and everyone around us changed overnight. We survived all our “What if’s” and all the firsts, “We wish you were here”. 

To this day a heavy sensation drops to our chest when the room goes quiet. I don’t think this ever goes away… We survived through prayers while thoroughly searching for hope and I’m grateful that your energy has been among us during each beautiful occasion. We survived by mentioning your name and reciting all the jokes you told us. I am deeply grateful for all the memories you graciously gave all of us.

Most importantly, we survived because your strength and determination paved our way.
