Kay came into my life as a family member and became a dear friend. Words cannot express the emptiness left by the loss of her gentle presence and lovely smile. I will miss her so much at our Sunday family dinners at Jen and Travis's home where we would just talk for hours about anything and everything.
I'll miss her phone calls and texts but most of all I will miss her love and friendship. May she rest in the Lord's loving embrace.

"In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know."
John 14

With love,

I’m sure you all know I’m not one to be rendered speechless, but as I sit down to write this I can’t think of a thing to say.

Trying to put this pain into words is turning out to be an impossible feat. I’ve wrote and rewrote this post over and over again, so I apologize if it seems sloppy.

How do I say how much I love someone and how much it hurts that they are gone?

There is an ache in my chest, dull and constant. I miss her more than anything. My family and I have cried on and off all week and I know she would hate that. She never wanted to feel like a burden. She had the biggest heart.

She kept every ticket stub of mine, every playbill, every birthday card. She always kept snacks in the house for us. It hurts so much to say goodbye. I don’t even remember the last words I said to her.

Everyone says that she isn’t hurting anymore. That is all I ever wanted for her, but I wish she was here with us instead. I wish she knew how much we miss her.

I’m sorry I never sang for you Grandma, I love you so much. I wish I could tell you that again. Thank you, for all the years of beautiful memories. One day I will write you a better letter, but today I want to get this off of my chest.
