  3. I still think about you often and I haven’t found a real way of comfort when it comes to you, I find it has gotten harder to express or relive this grief. It was suppose to get easier but I feel like I am learning more about you from other people and that makes it difficult in letting go of the sadness, I feel like I am more angry then I was about losing you. I am not sure how to deal with this but I am trying my best to make you proud and taking care of my sisters hoping I can help them too through this. I miss you so much.
