I believe I am okay. Within 7 days I’ve lost two people dear to me, one literally and one figuratively. How am I supposed to handle all of that at once? I do not know. All I know is that things always happen the way they do. All events, no matter how unfortunate, are meant to lead us to that point in time—that point in time where we can finally look back and say, “it was worth it.” Crystal was one of my best friends. Jennifer was my one exception that proves the rule. Here or not, nothing can ever take away the impact they both had on my life, no matter the brevity.
