Today, right now, this instant, please hug the ones you love. Call the friend you haven't talked to. Say I love you to your children and your significant others and your mom and your siblings. Grab this moment and treasure it. Value it. Embrace it.
You are missed Karen. And I can't help but think of your smile. And your laugh. And your funny way of seeing the world. Your perpetual positiveness.
My heart aches for your boys. My heart aches at the loss of your smile. My heart aches that you are gone. And the world is not the same because of it.
