Empty Arms

Leo,
Your death keeps playing over and over in my mind. I hope I never forget the sound of you taking your last two “breaths”, or the taste of your blood in my mouth, or the heart breaking feeling of my empty arms. I need this pain to remind me that you were real and not just a beautiful dream.

Planning your funeral has been surreal. I have had ups and downs at each step. The only things I know for sure anymore are that I love you, I love your father, and I love your sisters with my whole heart and soul. We are all connected forever and I cannot wait to see you again.
Thank you for sending me the cranes. 🙂
Love,
Mom
