Missing you, Katie

I can't let this day pass without saying something.  A year ago we were anticipating this day with great joy.  This would have been Ben and Katie's wedding day.  There were so many happy, exciting moments along the way, and those are the memories I'm hanging on to today.  We are better for knowing and loving Katie.  She was a strong, caring, loving, kind, generous soul...and the world was better for having had her here, even if it was way too short.  She was the perfect person I had been praying for in a helpmate for Ben.  The two of them were wonderful together.

Katie was just like a daughter to us.  She included us in her life like we were family.  She even took me with her when she went shopping for her wedding dress.  She would have been a beautiful bride.

I don't ever want to forget Katie, and all the lessons she taught me on how to be strong, to fight the good fight, and how to be kind to others no matter what I may be feeling inside.  So with tears in my eyes, I post this in loving memory of her.   We love you and miss you, Katie.
