Three years ago today, I woke up from a dream.
My mom and I were in Long Beach, on the boardwalk. A place that I shared many childhood memories with my family, and yours.
You showed up on the boardwalk, looking healthy and happy. You asked where we were going, and we didn’t want to tell you we were going down to the beach.
We knew you couldn’t come. Not that day, and unfortunately not ever again.
I woke up from that dream, and something felt…different.
That day, you left us.
I think of you every day and wish that you never had to leave. I think of the things I wish you were around for… the holidays, the weddings, and the gatherings. The things I wish you could be around for in the future.
There are things in life I don’t understand, and I guess I never will.
Love & miss you always <3
