I just had the urge to watch the tribute video we made for Kelly-Anne's wake. I'm shocked I can now watch it without sobbing. Sure, I feel sad when I remember Kell's smile, her beautiful hair, her fun disposition--and the fact that she was taken from us so tragically. But I also feel happy when I see the photos from our childhood and teenage years.
Kell was a wonderful person and a great friend. My life was richer with her in it. It has now been more than seven years since I've received a postcard from Kell. Seven years since we had the chance to chat. Seven years since we've gone swimming or adventuring together. I miss her each and every day.
