The inevitability of death has to be the worst part of the experience cause I don’t think I’ll ever be ready.
We've gotten to the age where friends are burying their parents and it’s surreal.
How do you deal with grief?
How do you tell someone you're sorry they're never going to see their mom again? How do you tell them you're sorry they never got to see their baby? How do you tell them you're sorry their dad won't ever be at their wedding?
Cause I really don't know.
It’s crazy how someone is here today and tomorrow, you're never going to see them again.
Sometimes I wonder if it’s better to never have known them at all or If the memories are truly worth the pain.
Nah, it’s better to have known than never to know at all.
The memories are their final gifts. To be able to look back and laugh, cry and smile about certain aspects of the lives they lived will forever remain the greatest gift. To know they lived, that they were happy and to an extent, fulfilled, is actually a privilege, cause some of us don't have that.
I still don’t know what to say but I’ll like to say a toast to all the ones we've lost;
Thank you for living. Thank you for the memories. Thank you for the gift of having known you. You're always going to be alive in my heart.
I miss you, I love you and I'm glad you're in a better place now.
I still don't think it does much but if you've ever lost someone, I'm sorry for your loss. I hope you get through the pain and remember how amazing their lives were.
