It’s the dawn of a new month without you and it is still impossible to believe that you are actually gone. I awaken every morning and believe for half a second that maybe this was all just a crazy dream. You come to me so vividly in my dreams, but each sunrise arouses a unique level of consciousness about my new reality.
Despite the immeasurable loss that I feel when I don’t see you here, lying next to me, I begin each day with an awareness that each new moment is a gift and its purpose will be revealed to me if only I begin with a grateful heart.
Mark, I pray that you will continue to watch over us and I believe with all my heart that you can see that our lives are so very rich with love and abundant blessings. Thank you, Mark, for all of the gifts that you have given us and for the immense and constant reminders that you are with us on this journey every step of the way. Mark, you will always be Cooper’s first hero, Lucia and Cecilia’s first love, and the everlasting love of my life.
