In Memory of…

It seems like I prepare myself mentally, every year, for March 16th to come around. A reminder of what and who we lost. A very amazing 21 year old who was going to change the world had she been given the chance to live longer, thrive more and shine as bright as the sun.

A young woman who made countless friends across the country because they saw something special about her – she was rare, unique and there will never be quite another soul like hers. Her death impacted lives from across the globe. The world could not believe that their angel on earth had become an angel in heaven. We wept in unison.

Still we don’t forget. We keep her memory and spirit alive with our actions, thoughts and words the best that we can. It’s to pay homage to a hero, a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter, a niece, a cousin, a friend…whose laughter & smile were contagious.

We remember the hugs that she would give – even to a stranger. Little did we know that there were angel wings tucked away inside her human arms. A heart so pure that we could never compare; only appreciate the fact that we each had our special place inside of it. Words spoken so sincere that we never questioned the validity.

The void in each of our lives remains consistent, but we also know how fortunate we are to have shared even a single moment with her. And for that we count our blessings every day.

If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever…

Our Angel in Fatigues
