You have been gone ten days today.

I sat and watched them lower your casket in the ground. I know some may think I’m morbid but for me that’s closure. I know it was only your body as you are now in Heaven with Jesus! And that reason alone causes me to rejoice!

Yet I miss you so very much!

I’ll never again hear you say, “Honey, I love you too!”

Even so, I’d never wanta bring you back to this earth with all that’s going on! You are in a much better place now!

So for this season, I will grieve and I will mourn your passing.

I will allow myself to feel all the feelings and emotions and I will grow all the better for it!

I will closely guard the precious memories of you I have!

And I will learn from this relationship and hopefully, allow my others to grow as a result.

I don’t fully understand the process of grieving, of mourning but I am learning and growing.

I miss you so very much!

And I love you deeply!

Thank you for teaching me all you did!
