It's been a year.  A year that I've thought of you every single day.  A year where wonderful things happened and I thought of you.  A year where even tiny things reminded me of you.  A year where I wondered what concert you would have gone to, what amazing celebrity you would have met, and what you were doing with your sweet nieces and nephews.  A year.  A whole year that you've been gone.  You are gone from our midst, but not from our hearts.  We love you and always will!

The funeral was today.  So many emotions, so much sadness, so many questions, so few answers.  A grieving widow, a stunned family, and two boys so young, they have no understanding yet. 

Psalms 23
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.  
 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,  
 he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.  
 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.  
 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.  
 Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
