It is difficult to put into words, especially in so few of them, the highlights of life, the good memories, the good times, the reason why the people in your life are so special.
However, it is not difficult to see or feel how the absence of somebody will affect our lives. Being so far away it has been difficult for me to untangle all of the different feelings and emotions that I know everybody has to deal with.
When somebody that you have shared your life with is removed from your life, it is the highlights, good memories, and good times that are the most haunting.
Maybe because we know that we are never going to experience these things again.
Maybe we have things that we should have said or did but never did.
…all of these things are a huge weight for one person to carry, that is why we need to share with each other… the highlights, the good memories, the good times… even the not so good times.. the miserable holidays in caravans and holiday parks and the chaotic Christmases and birthday parties.
The people in our lives are the links that hold our world together…
in life, through just being there…
..and in death through remembering that they were here.
