today would have been your 26th birthday. i don’t know what to say but thank you.
thank you for teaching me how to play a mean game of poker. that everyone has something to offer. that optimism is always better than pessimism and there is no excuse for a bad attitude. that while laughter may not fix everything, there isn’t much better than a life full of good friends and family. that life is fleeting, so enjoy it and love it.
i’ve reached a point where i can remember without crying, but there’s a hole in my life, one that will be there forever. thank you for being my friend, thank you for being you.
longfellow said it so well:
yours has the suffering been
the memory shall be ours
