The Day My World Stopped| Miss You Forever
Oh my gosh!
Warning!!! You will cry! This could be a trigger for some as well!
Sarah has bared her heart for us all to see. She shares her grief and her love for her cousin who passed away.
Having walked with Angie after losing Matthew I can understand everything. I’ve been there when a pair of socks in a store brings back memories and tears flow. And yet at the same time a smile. Grief is tough! It never goes away. One will always remember!

I went to a party, Mom. I remember what you said. You told me not to drink , Mom, so I drank soda instead.
I felt really proud, Mom, the way you said I would. I didn’t drink and drive, Mom, even though the others did.

As I get into my car, Mom, I know I’d get home in one piece. Because the way you raised me, Mom, so responsible and sweet.

As I lie on the pavement, Mom, I wish you’d get here soon. How come it happen to me, Mom?…
