In Memory

Today marks one year since the death of my Brother..
We say our final good-byes and go on with life..with the hole it leaves in your heart.
The hole gets smaller as the days go by because of the memories we've stored in the previous years. Not too say that as you go about your daily errands etc..you don't have flashbacks..
I often drive by a little favorite spot of his and look over to the deck..and at times I toot my horn, because he was almost always sitting there at certain times of the day enjoying a cup of coffee and a cigarette...sometimes I catch a glimpse of him 'still' there..memories...
Don't be sad for me today..hug your loved ones and let them know you care!

Life moves forward but we never forget the love we have for those who have gone before. You have found a peace that not everyone has and it sustains you. You have a lovely way of remembering his life and spirit.
