#flashbackFriday is of dad and I from one of our many joint birthday parties. Because what 22 year old doesn’t want to have a joint birthday party with her dad?! Well, I always did at least.
Thank you everyone who was there for my family over this last year. One of the hardest parts for me has been meeting new people. Because for them to not understand the magnitude of this mans affect on everyone around him, makes the grief of losing him that much worse. I can boast about his heart, his strength, his selflessness all day but if you didn’t witness it, it’s difficult to put into words. I think we would all agree, it’s a tragedy the world lost that. That grief is my motivation to always be a shoulder to cry on, love wholeheartedly, and continue advocating for mental health.
Dad I miss you so much and I wish more than anything that you were still here, but I said it a year ago and I’ll say it again... he wouldn’t have left us if he didn’t think we were strong enough to make it without him. Some days are easier than others, but I hope that I’ve exemplified that strength this year and continue to in your honor the rest of my life. ❤️
