Healing Through Friendship
I didn’t sleep, none of us slept. Although I felt as though I hardly grieved those first two weeks until his funeral. We planned everything together, I made it my duty to make sure everything was as perfect as it could be and as memorable as possible. I had never done this before. I had no idea the short time period you had to make so much happen in; especially for someone that wasn’t expected to leave us at all. I dove head first into work mode, that was the best place for me. My grief took a back seat and I made all the arrangements as much and as best as possible. I was given impossible deadlines for photographs, videos, music, playlists, obituary, funeral programming… What was I even doing? It was incredible the difficulty some people put you through. We had friends and family members jumping at any task we assigned them and then there were people like our family photographer (from photos taken back in November) that told me it may not be possible to have the family photo proofs available before his funeral. My response was quite blunt and short and I received those proofs the next day at 4 am while I was still working away on Tay’s services. People can be incredible! Good and bad!

My sweet sweet Erika! This is beautiful. You’re so amazing and I love you so much. I remember the first few weeks like it was just yesterday (sadly) you all gave me the strength I so desperately needed!!! 💕💕 I admire each and everyone of you more than I can express.
