WOW. Time flies! I feel like time is a matter of prespective!  Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday that we were at the hospital! And when I think of the last time I spoke with him, it seems like it's been ages!  Well here I am starting another year without him, starting with my birthday next Wednesday.  Time will lessen the pain, but I doubt it will fade away completely!

"Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them."

Big hugs to you, Chopperette!  While you are almost a year farther out than I am, I can relate to the sentiment that time is a matter of perspective and that sometimes, it feels like yesterday.  I hope your birthday next Wednesday is a good one.
"The highest tribute to the dead is not grief but gratitude." - Thornton Wilder

Thank you, my dearest Kenneth, for loving me and for giving me the best 13 years of my life.

No matter what the future holds in store for us, one thing is certain, we won't ever forget, our love will continue.

Several years ago I wrote this poem:

"The Heart won't Forget"

The heart won't forget
Neither the love nor the pain
It always keeps track

Of that which matters --
Nothing can ever erase
The ones we have loved

It's written inside
With an indelible seal
And can't be wiped out

Now and forever
With each pulse and each beat
It brings them along

They're always a part
Wherever life takes us
They walk at our side

Our love shall remain
Unto ages of ages
Two souls intertwined

Now and forever
Belonging to each other
Until time stands still


Peace to you, today and always!

Hugs Chopperette. 
I don't want it to be his legacy that his death destroyed me.
I need to honour his life by rebuilding my life.

Hugs Chopperette. I know this feeling so well.

I am different! How could I not be?
