Over the last 5 years, my hometown, Charleston, South Carolina has lost more young, beautiful souls than we can count on both hands. Each one of them was taken far too soon and had so much life ahead of them. There is absolutely nothing that can prepare us for losing someone we are close to. There’s no easy way to cope with or understand why it happens but you must remember you’ll always have an amazing guardian angel.
It still doesn’t seem real, I don’t know how I’ve made it this far without you. I’m not sure how exactly to go on without you by my side. How do I even begin to try and understand why and how you are gone in the blink of an eye.
It’s hard to be sad when I think about you being gone because I think of all the laughs we shared and fun times we had. I wish more than anything I could see you smile again, hear your voice again or hug you again. But we must stop and be thankful for all the memories we did create and all the pictures we have of your beautiful face.
My mind is filled with so many questions, but mostly Why? Why you? Why now? You had so many years of life ahead of you, we had so many memories to make. You’re supposed to be here. But you’re in a better place, you’re happy now, you have no more pain and you are watching over each one of us. Although we can’t see you, you’re with us and I’m confident that we will see you again one day.
So, until that day comes, I will see you in my dreams, remember you every day and try my hardest to live the rest of my life like you would.
Rest in The Sweetest Peace,
We’ll see you soon
