It is so hard to believe it has been a year since you were taken from all of us who love and care about you.
I have missed you so much this past year! There were so many special days and events that you had always made even more special for me, like Grand Old Day, our birthdays, our parties, St. Patrick's Day, concerts... But, what I miss most is just being able to pick up the phone and call you or stop over and hang out together.
I will never be able to understand why you were taken from us. I will never stop being sad or feeling empty because of that. However, even in death you have taught me something extremely valuable - to enjoy every day, especially all of the fun times with friends and family. I am so glad that we were able to spend so many fun times together. I will always treasure those memories!
Even though there is so much pain because of your passing, whenever I think about you or look at your pictures (Lydia and I have them all over our home), I smile and laugh and remember all of the great times we shared. I can still hear your laugh and see your smile.
I hope you know how much all of us care about you and think about you. I also hope that in some way you are there with us, at all of the special events that the future holds for those of us that loved you!
I know that I will see you again, but until then you will always be with me, in my heart.
I love you, Heidi.
