When a loved one dies tragically, one can focus on this to the point of obsession. Do not let this become your main memory. One moment in a lifetime may have high drama, but it is the countless moments when you shared a laugh, a hug, a moment of tenderness, joy, connection that they now wish you to focus upon. Yes, they wish this, for they see you, know your thoughts, feel your feelings far more so than when at your side physically. “Do not remember me this, way, please. My body may no longer be here, but the part that has always stirred your heart—my soul—walks with you still.”

You are so very loved.
