First, my sympathies. Your love and pain are equally represented in your post. Your words are inspirational and helpful. Knowing what to say or do when someone you care about is grieving is always awkward and unsettling, especially when the death is sudden, unexpected, and at a younger age than most.

Your story — her story — is beautifully told and, in spite of not knowing her, I know she would be proud of each word.

The music you chose to accompany this was perfect.

May you find contentment and purpose wherever you go and whatever you do.
