It’s been 8 months since you have passed. But why it’s getting more painful? Why it becomes harder for me to accept everything? Sometimes it seems like it’s too much to handle no matter how hard I try. And I feel bad for the great life I have around me now. That I still carry this feeling with me. 😶 It’s really hard but i promised to be stronger and to face and overcome everything for you and for myself. Although I miss you terribly, I know I will see you very soon! Just keep looking out for us. I know we will have a lot of catching up to do someday. I love you, everything about you. Yours, Janica
