Remembering Those We Have Loved & Lost

Today's if the first day of April. A bright sunny day from my spot in front of my window. I dedicate my very first blog today to Amy and Kenny. Two truly amazing people that passed away leaving empty spaces where warmth and love and amazing talent use to live.

As a child,  Amy was my savior, my warrior, my advocate, my friend. She was also my Sister. I often think if I could have just one more day to sit and have coffee with her I would tell her all of the things that I did not say while I had the chance, while she was alive. I would tell her I loved the sound of her voice, the smell of her hair on her pillow when I was a child and slept beside her in the small hole in the wall. I would tell her I loved the way she picked the weeds out of her flower beds and how beautiful her handwriting was. I would tell her that, as a child, had it not been for her, I don't know that I would have survived my life. Amy was Christmas to a child who was not allowed to have Christmas. She saved me from myself.

Kenny - your passing left so many words unspoken. Like so many untimely deaths, the world lost a truly amazing artist. I admire the strength with which you fought your fight and I pray that Heaven welcomed you and I know your pain was washed away. I regret the conversation we did not have as time did not allow me to be at your side, but I know you know what I would have told you.

The deaths of Amy and Kenny have made me realize that not one day should pass without telling those you love how they inspire you, what little things you admire about them and certainly how much you love them.

 Today and everyday I remember you, Amy & Kenny.
