Sunday night was the last conversation we had where she was able to respond back much at all. It went like this. I bent down to tell her my visit had come to an end. She called me her little princess and moved my hair out of my face to comfort me as I silently shed tears that were long overdue. She traced my arm with her hand until it touched my face and brushed through my curls. We both knew it was goodbye. I could see it in her eyes. She squeezed my hand before letting go. I kissed her forehead and said a prayer over her before walking away. Neither of us had dry eyes. Goodbyes are never easy or adequate.
Tonight, I started looking through photos I have of her from our wedding until now. Here a few favorites I thought you would enjoy seeing as we celebrate her life today and grieve over her death.
