It's hard to believe it's been a year
Posted by: Grateful11

In a way it seems like it was just yesterday and in other ways it's seems like it's been an eternity. I'm
having a rough time this morning. Things just keep coming back and hitting me like a ton of bricks,
an emotional roller coaster. We just got back from putting new flowers on Jesse's marker. The words just
won't come out right now but one of his best friends put this on Jesse's Facebook page and thought I'd
share it with y'all.

"I find it hard not to count the days, but the numbers keep coming. We have come to that one year mark
and nothing seems to have drastically changed. I was working last week and a lady came to my register
with her four year old granddaughter to make her purchases. While ringing them up, a lady behind them
commented on the granddaughter's cuteness and how she would be a heart-breaker when she finally
got into school. The grandmother simply replied that her granddaughter wouldn't have a problem
handling the boys, because she was born with half a heart and could handle anything. At that moment
the little girl raised her shirt like a reflex to show the customer behind her the foot long scars that
marked her chest perpendicularly. These are the people who keep me grounded. These are the people
who humble me and remind me that there is so much to fight for and to live beyond. You will remain
the finest example of what it was to accept life and never settle for its costs. Rest well, and may your
impact shine on through the few who fight to embrace its memory."

Has it been a year already? It certainly doesn't seem like it.

Keeping you and your family in my thoughts.



It is what it is.

I agree, it doesn't seem like it's been a year either. Regardless, my sympathies...

I think about you and your family often. For me when I lost a loved one, I didn't want the time to pass. Having lost more loved ones since then, I didn't want the time to pass either. But so it goes and there's nothing you can do about it. For me, I guess the only thing I can do is think that the person would want me to be happy and enjoy the life I'm still living here.

Funny that you mention facebook. When a friend suddenly passed a few months ago, I worried about his SO. But she's received a TON of support on FB, and she's also posted her thoughts and feelings on there as well. She occasionally posts on his wall... messages to him as if he was still here. Seems like a good outlet for her.

Be strong, and keep the memories alive. Bless you.

Wow, that was a fast year. I "love" the best friends' comment. It was perfect. A nice tribute.
