You find that the pen and the paper are your greatest weapons, the weapons to fight the forgetful nature of the human mind, because how can the human mind be so weak to forget the name of someone so strong?
Birthdays will never be the same. Christmas will always feel incomplete. There is a gap, a missing piece in every family picture, every Holiday card, every vacation and those are when it will hit you. It will hit on the death anniversaries, on her birthdays, on the empty closet, on the graduation and when it hits, it will hit hard.
There will come a time where someone you love so deeply will walk away from you.
