Today marks one year since my crunchy granola, hippie, bra-less stepmom slipped away from us in her sleep.
I think we’ve been trying to re-learn how to live a life without you in it ever since then. We’re still trying to figure it out.
Thank you for giving our lives more joy. Thanks for having a smile that stretched across the entire room. Thanks for opening your arms to every person you met. You were one of the most selfless people I had the honor of knowing and loving. Even at 11 when I wasn’t so easy to love, you made me feel special. Not a single person in your life ever had to wonder if you loved them.
You made sure everyone knew how special they were to you.
You’ve forever changed my life. Thank you for shaping me into the person I am today. I can’t explain the positive impact you had.
