I'm sorry to hear of this, Kevin.

Let me tell you something I have always tried to do when a loved-one or friend passes.

In addition to remembering the times together, I really think about the things that I admired about that person that I felt that they were better at than I was...

I then think about how I can aspire to emulate that aspect of him or her in my own life.

Every time I find myself having done something differently than what I might have done without that reflection, a little piece of me smiles for both the memory, honor, and gift that person gave me.

A small part of them lives on in my heart every time I do the act or deed that I focused upon, and it amazes me how easy it is to reflect upon where it came from, no matter the amount of time that has passed since I first gave it a thought.

My sincere condolences.

I do think of a lot of things that I admired about him. I know he'll live forever in my thoughts and heart.

It just feels like I'm too young to be losing the ones I have been. I know that probably sounds selfish, or maybe "why me"-ish, but it just doesn't feel right. I think this loss might break my spirit, I dunno. Only time will tell. All that is keeping me going right now is my girls.


His little sister took the picture attached, it's the last one that I'll have with Nick and I.

Nick was buried just about an hour ago. It still doesn't seem real.

Nick's headstone marker was placed recently. It's been just over seven months. Still very hard to accept he's gone.

That's a nice one. It is a shame to need it.
