“When someone you love dies, and you’re not expecting it, you don’t lose her all at once; you lose her in pieces over a long time—the way the mail stops coming, and her scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in her closet and drawers. Gradually, you accumulate the parts of her that are gone.”
― John IrvingA Prayer for Owen Meany

Today I’ve written three posts and deleted them all. What is there left to say about August 29th that I haven’t already said? What points could I possibly make about unexpected accidents, that John Irving didn’t say better above?

Love you Mom.

  1. A couple months ago, I lost my grandpa and uncle unexpectedly 3 weeks apart. It is hard to lose family members 😦

    I’m so sorry to hear that and for what I know you must have gone through with so much loss so quickly. Hands down the worst thing about getting older is realizing how many people you love are going to die and also realizing you’ll never be “ready” for it.
