I rarely blog first thing on the morning, but anniversaries tend to change life a bit. Today, actually, at roughly 8:30, marks two years since Kevin took his last breath. Of all the memories I have of Kevin, the unfortunate thing is that the memory of his last moments on earth are still some of the most powerful and real to me. All the other memories lie in shadows, as if it happened to some other life, but that memory has been etched and nothing has seemed to tone it down.
I have been trying my hardest to think up all the fun, happy, and clearer memories of Kevin, in an effort to capture his life, not his death. It’s been a fun journey to write about these things. If you’d like to read some from the past 24 hours and through today, visit my crazywidow twitter page. It helps me to relive the times I smiled with him, instead the of times I have cried after losing Kev.
Kevin still lives on in many people’s memories. I have been told stories I did not know, and reminded that Kevin’s story is still shared with others besides myself. So today, I want you to share your memories with me to share to the world. I want Kevin to be remembered, not mourned today. I know we all had a deep love and soft spot for that man, and that’s what I want to honor today.
Kevin, you still inspire me with all you gave me in our short time together. I mourn you, I miss you, but I thank you too for what you gave me, which neither of us expected. Cancer took much, but it gave much too.
Share with me today-leave a comment with a memory, and inspiration, a though on Kevin. Thank you.
