We Love You, Kim
As I've said before, I don't remember death dates - not for people or cats or anyone else, but I do remember Kim's, because it's her and because it's a week after my birthday.
We lost our sister Kim three years ago. I can remember it like it was yesterday, but in many ways it feels so, so long ago, because these years have been difficult - missing her. And even three years later, I still can't totally believe that she is gone.
I love this picture of Kim because it's how I remember her most - laughing like that. I wish I had more pictures like this. They are probably on Facebook, but I am not.
I will be wearing this necklace from my best friend Barbara this weekend, in memory of Kim, just like I did on her birthday last month. It helps me to feel closer to her somehow.
I can't say it gets any easier, this grieving stuff. It just gets...different.
