“Grief is love’s souvenir. It’s our proof that we once loved. Grief is the receipt we wave in the air that says to the world: Look! Love was once mine. I loved well. Here is my proof that I paid the price. So I’ll just show up and sit quietly….I’m so sorry. I’ll say. Thank you for trusting me enough to invite me close. I see your pain and it’s real. I’m so sorry.”

This one is for my beautiful Minnesota family. I love you. I see your pain, and it’s real. I’m so sorry.
You are surrounded by love. We are all here.
