Stephanie Hanna, thank you for sharing this story. I cried many times reading it. Remembering the ones we’ve lost is a small catharsis, and your story is a beautiful representation of grief, which itself is a beautiful representation of what it means to be human. I’m so sorry for your loss.
Whoever said “time heals all” was way wrong, but time does ease the pain.
You sound like a strong lady, but my heart goes out to you anyway.
