You didn't hurt me at all. :) you have a special gift and I would love to hear more. Anything else you might have. I have no answers to anything.

Amy, I'm sorry if I surprised you in anyway shape or form. I didn't mean to hurt you with message. Your  husband even asked me tell you but, slowly and nicely so I wouldn't scare you. But, if u have anymore questions please ask me but, keep in mind I may not have all the answers you want either. Enjoy your daughter. Sincerely, Amber

Life without them

It's been 2 years and 2 months since I lost my dad, and 1 year and 3 months since u lost my grandmother. Sometimes I feel like they were never here, like this is normal life without them. Then I have moments when I want to curl up in a ball and just cry because it hurts so much to miss them. I try to remember the good moments but all I can think about is the last days.The other day I was at the hospital with a friend and when we walked in I saw my dad, like I was shook this older women was…See More
