On those we’ve lost

Every leap day brings a reminder of my eighth grade year and the day when a dear friend of mine killed himself.

It’s never easy when someone we love is taken from us.  The finality of the loss, the ache of what might have been can bring you to your knees.

But the ones that we love never truly leave us.  They live on within us – in our memories and in our hearts, always.

If there ever comes a day when we can be together, keep me in your heart.  I’ll stay there forever. -A.A. Milne

To J.R. – I’ll always keep you in my heart.
