A Memorial Day


by Kate Collins

Today I'd like to use this space as a tribute to loved ones who are no longer with us. If you'd like to add your special names to my list, please do. I'd appreciate it.

In memory of my beloved husband. I miss you, dear heart.
In memory of my mother and father.
In memory of my sweet cats, who were like children to me.

For my husband: I miss you every day, without fail. Your heart stopped, mine broke, and I don't know that anything will put it back together again.

For my parents: I wish I could pick up the phone and call you and just hear your voices again.

For my cats: Each of you loved with a unique and special warmth. I miss you.
