Thank you everyone for your words of encouragement.
I've been thinking about him a lot lately. He was such a good listener and loved so unconditionally. He touched my life so deeply. I've been crying a lot lately but I often find myself smiling through the tears as I remember something funny that he did or just the time we spent together.
I have some pictures of him that I took recently for no reason at all. I think I'm going to frame them and put them up on my wall.
I just wish that I had been able to say good-bye.
Thank you for helping me to remember him.
