I post this in quiet remembrance and to honor what was. It’s hard to believe it’s been twenty years, and it’s even harder to believe he’s gone.
I offer deep gratitude for those who have walked beside me over the course of a life none of us imagined on that happy day. Many beautiful things came from my love for David; I regret nothing, and given the same circumstances and choice, I would do it all again. He enriched and blessed me far beyond the sorrow and ashes that followed.
I also offer deep gratitude for the unexpected and unimagined love that followed in Jon. He’s continually held space and made it safe for me and our kids to process our grief, share our stories, and feel all of our feelings. The vastness of his spirit and heart is a balm to the soul, and allows us to catch glimpses of the divine through each other.
