I’ve forced myself to forget how many candles I’ve lit in your favor. Sometimes I wonder if all the prayers and wishes for your well being went to waste. Your struggles were so overwhelming that I wonder if I could pick all the broken pieces you left. Or even glue everything back together, but it’s impossible. Your downfalls often float into my memories, but then I look back to the rest of our summer days, to the times when you were strong enough to make jokes. When I look back at all the outings with you during this short magical time, I realize my prayers were answered. We were given a second chance to show you how much you meant to us.
To the memory of my Godfather♥ I will always love you.
