Today I am working on my daughter’s memorial dedication at her high school and I just began to sob at how I miss her so. Today I feel so broken-hearted. It’s a pain I cannot describe. But the best I can do is compare it to the feeling one might have when they are having a heart attack.
Two students from her high school interviewed me so they could prepare a story that will coincide with the dedication ceremony. The third question was the one that got me. I began sobbing on the phone and apologized to the students – they were very understanding. The question was what legacy did I feel I wanted the students at the school to know that Brittany left. That was a powerful question and it just took my breath away.
I will write about it next time.
