Carrying On... (Originally posted 7/12/14

I've heard the "stages of grief" for years - shock, denial, anger, acceptance, etc; sometimes, they all come at you at once, & they definitely knock you on your butt!!! The friend I referred to a few weeks ago passed on last night. It IS the Circle of Life; & they're with Jesus, etc; but it still really hurts. I know I will not stay where I am, I will move on & carry on with the memories we shared. There are certain places I will never go without her in my heart - a restaurant we used to go to & the AH-MAZING salad she introduced me to; the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville; & when I DO make it to New York City, she will definitely be right there with me. She was a big supporter of my 9/11 obsession, & now she knows what happened in those final moments on that fateful day. RIP my friend, I love you, & I will miss you, & I WILL carry on...have a good day & be safe...
