There are moments where she pops into my head unexpectedly, in the shower, changing a diaper, or just as I'm unwinding in bed before I fall asleep. My mind thinks back to my friend Kathie. I think about how unfair it is that she's gone, that her girls lost their mother, and her husband lost his wife. I see my girls playing with their Grammy and stop for a moment to consider that her granddaughter will never really remember her, and my heart aches.
I miss my friend.
Cancer robbed her of life, and now I only hold memories of her.
Rest in peace Kathie, and prayers to her family and friends.
