My dear friend was such a kind soul and I still question why it had to be him that left so early. I find some peace knowing that he is all around us now.......in the rivers he use to fish, in the mountains he use to hunt, in the music he use to dance to, and the town we all live in. I hope one day to understand all of this. And I hope even more to get a warm hug from him again.
I have learned some lessons from him and it has also opened my eyes to some things I thought I knew before but I truly didn't. I have been holding my two sweet boys and my amazing husband even harder and longer, I have been making sure to tell my loved ones I love them more than usual, I have been reaching out even more to friends old and new, I have healed some relationships that were stronger than I thought, and I am just ready to live life to it's absolute fullest. My dear friend lived his life better than anyone I know....and I strive to do exactly what he did.
My dear friend.....I miss you!
