Six years ago today
My daughter Gillian died on Memorial Day six year ago. The holiday was also on May 28 that year.
When I first found this forum Lulie Wayne was here, and she had lost her daughter six years earlier. Six years sounded like such a long time to me then. I liked the idea of time as healer, but I didn't want to get farther away from my Jill.
Now, four-and-a-half years later, I can tell you that I look and feel quite a bit older, and I'll probably cry less today than I did back then (although the day is still young as I write this). But I still feel blessedly close to my daughter.
