One year ago...

You woke me up so I would get to work on time...
You told me you loved me...
You made my tea...
You asked where I wanted to go for dinner...
You kissed me goodbye...

That arvo, our lives changed in an instant.

I will never understand why.


I have cried oceans of tears, cursed all the gods man has ever invented, and still I have no answers.

Your death feels like it happened both a lifetime ago and just yesterday, all at the same time.

The only thing I know now is that I CAN be resilliant, even if I don't WANT to be.

So, in your honor, honey, we have named a star for you, planted trees, bought a memorial bench. Donated money and time to the AHA.

You were a selfless organ donor, but you gave more to people through your kindness and that cheeky smile than we will ever know.

Right now, I simply have no more words. These, by the group Bread, say it all.

Kisses, Wifey

It is amazing the strength we find to survive the unthinkables of life. God s Spirit really helps us in unbelievable ways and we ask ourselves how is it that we have survived. I pray and wish for you wonderful blessings of peace, happiness and clarity. You are indeed living an amazing life.Dont give up.Nothing easy I know.
Take care

One year, seems like yesterday, that close; also like a thousand years that far away.
Sending you hugs, know that I'm thinking of you.
