I'm not fine, I'm in painIt's harder everydayMaybe we're better off this way?It's better if we break...
Maroon 5 - Better if we Break
9 long years ago today, you breathed your last. Your beautiful heart stopped beating. The life left your body. 3 daughters and a son, a beloved daughter in law and 2 sons in law lost their mother. 5 grandchildren lost their amazing Nana. 6 more were born never having felt your kisses. Knowing only photographs and stories of an amazing woman. 2 parents buried their firstborn; a burden I wish upon no-one. 5 brothers, 2 sisters said goodbye to their big sister. Countless in laws and others lost a beautiful friend.
A man lost the love of his life. None have been the same since. Every one of us is better for having had you in our lives. 43 years is a pittance, but you packed so much into them.
You are missed beyond measure. Loved beyond words. Sleep, you earned release from the pain. We'll carry you in our hearts for now. We will pass down stories of you for generations. Not a one of use will forget.
~Your favourite song~
I love you. Thank you for giving me my life.
I miss you.
Your loving daughter.
