The longest day ever...
The best place to be when you don't want to be anywhere is surrounded by friends.
Monday, Kim was laid to rest. It sucked... HARD.
What didn't suck was that I was surrounded by my best friends. Friends that were feeling the same things I was, and that were hurting the same as me.
While it was one of the hardest funerals I've ever had to go to, I was very happy to have been there. Again, while there, I just kept thinking... I really wish there was more I could do. Tell more stories about how I knew her. Give more hugs, show more support... but we were all assured that while we all felt as though we weren't doing enough, we did more than was ever expected and that meant a lot.
The funeral was the worst, the friendship was the best. I'm glad that I saw the girls this weekend, I just wish it were under better circumstances.
We did a lot of remembering, and laughing and of course crying. I know that we'll all be ok, because we have each other. I also know that the remembering, and the laughing and the crying is far from over... We will always remember, because that is how Kim will stay alive. She will always live in our group. She will always live in our hearts.
Still remembering her... always... love you, Kim...
