I thought of you today..

I think of you EVERY day, actually.. but yesterday, 7 years ago- you were snatched away from us, waaaay too soon. I quit asking myself why this had to happen. Who knows, really. I just know it was very unfair. I see your little kids who look exactly like you. They are doing just great. I think your hubbys doing better, but he certainly has his days. Your mom, I still worry about. Shes not the same person she was before, and the trauma of loosing you, well. You could imagine.

I will never forget you, you know. My girl. My friend. My rock of life. Your beautiful brown sparkling eyes. That wonderful suspect smile- and your laugh, WHAT I WOULDNT GIVE TO HEAR YOU LAUGH. Someday, I guess I will hear you again. That my dear cousin, will be a day.
I miss you. I miss you. I miss you. Do you get to do your nails in heaven? What about any awesome new haircut? I would love to dream of you tonight- or any night. It never happens though. I hope you remember me and how much I love you.

How wonderful that you keep the memories of someone so special to you alive and you share them with us. I hope your memories and her children bring you comfort.

Here is a big hug to you! I'm so sorry for you lose. I'm sitting here crying and feeling your pain thinking of what a terrible tradgey. Not only for you but for those she suddenly left behind. Then as I clear my tear I think, how lucky Lisa and everyone she knew are. To have such a person in thier life. Someone who even after her death is probably helping you all live a life different, better, and more loving then you would have if she was still with you.
Loved ones are so precious and sometimes we forget that one day they might not be here. I know I do!
Thank you for reminding me.
I'm thinking of you today

Oh, Lisa! I'm so sorry about your friend. What a blessing that she is remembered and loved.

I can relate to you. My very best friend died in a car wreck Feb. 22, 2007. It was very sudden. She was 55. I had only known her for 2 years but she and I clicked like no other had before. My daughter and I visited her grave this past Saturday and it was very clear that I was not over losing her. I honestly don't think I ever will.

I am so sorry for your loss. BTW my name is Lisa too.

Came over to see one of my minority bossy readers who is also a Republican and then read this which broke my heart because I live in fear of losing my 35 year old husband to cancer on a daily basis. He is very sick.
