“His laugh was one of the things I loved hearing most in the world. She was so silly and delicious. Things got a lot duller around here. I miss you shouting at the door of my house, without ever ringing the doorbell, the noise you caused wherever you arrived. How I miss you in the simplest things in our lives. Every day I can hear you telling us to get up and dust ourselves off, that everything will be fine. I have no idea what happened, or how this year passed without you, we kept going, supporting each other, falling and getting up, crying and laughing, angry and grateful. Learning to live with this lack of breath, with this tightness in our chest, with this absurd emptiness, trying to discover who we are after feeling so much pain. I confess I still don’t know“, she said.
And he added: “And even with this knot in my chest, I still know how lucky I am to be your daughter. And I am grateful every day for having had such a badass, wonderful mother and my greatest friend. Our love is still very much alive within me and its strength continues to push me forward as it always has been and always will be. I love you with all the love that fits inside me. Thank you for so much, mom“.
