Missing you Kate

Kate, it’s been a little over a month since we lost you. I have so many questions that I’m starting to realize I’ll never have answers to. I keep wondering if there was anything I could’ve done to stop you from doing this. Mom and Dad are so sad and distraught, so I’m doing my best to be strong for them. I can’t sleep anymore after seeing the suicide selfie you took on your phone, and I don’t think I’ll ever get that image out of my mind. I’ll be saying your eulogy next week, and I just pray that I do you justice. I wonder if you are looking down on us and seeing what this has done. Did you know how much we loved you? I can’t imagine the despair you were in, but why didn’t you talk to me. I miss you and still can’t believe this is real.

    1. Hi Esther, I’m also sorry for your loss, it’s a devasting way to lose a sibling no matter the manner in which it happens.
      Our funeral mass for Kate is this Tuesday, and I’ll be doing the eulogy. It’ll be so hard not to cry, but I’m going to try and be strong. I’m glad I found this site with others who share the same grief.
