*Quote: “Don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened.” – Dr Suess *
When you died, I screamed. I wailed, I cried. Then, I was silent. It hurt so much to know I would never be able to talk with you or laugh with you again. I thought of you every day, but I couldn’t even remember the best of times without tears. It was months before I could think of you without the pangs of loss. It’s been three years now since you’ve been gone. Now, when I think of you I smile. I grin when I remember your friendly face. I chuckle when I recall your snorting laugh. I laugh when I relive your most spastic moments. I miss your support, your empathy, love, your humor, and your heart, but I don’t cry because it’s over and gone- now I smile because it happened; I smile because you were my friend.
