8 Years Later......

I am amazed to think that it has already been 8 years since that horrible day.  Day to day the crushing pain has lessened but the sense that something is missing from my life never goes away.  I still see things and think "Angie would like that" or hear a song that makes me think of her or remember a memory that only she and I share.  The hole that her death has left in my life will never be filled.  

One of the hardest parts of her loss for me is that fact that my children will never know her for themselves.  Of course they know her through my eyes but they have lost so much by not having her as the incredible "aunt" that she would have been.

One of the comforts was knowing that she died doing something she loved.  She took such pride in her job at the Pentagon and we have learned how important her presence was to her co-workers.  She had achieved so much and touched so many lives in her brief 27 years here with us.  

Angie was (and still is) one of the best things in my life.  She taught me incredible lessons about friendship, love, and acceptance.  I miss her more than words can say.

Stacey,  thank you for sharing your story with all of us.  I know how I feel when I see images of that day...but I didn't loose anyone close to me as you have.  I can't imagine your loss.  Thanks again.

Stacy-Ann - This is a lovely tribute to your friend.  I lost one of my best friends to cancer last year - I can relate to this type of pain.  I miss him.

Dearest Stacey I hope you found the strength it takes to make it through another anniversary of this tragic day.  We can never forget as a nation and we will never forget the individuals lost had family and friends who miss them every day.

Thank you all for your kind words.  It was a tough day but one good thing is that at least everyone stops to honor the people lost that day.  I know many people who've lost people they love on random days and they think no one cares or remembers.

Jason - I can relate to your pain.  So sorry for the loss of your friend.  Hang on to the good memories, they will help pull you through the dark days.

Stacey, I have read and agree with the other comments. I just want to ad that you were fortunate to have enjoyed a relationship like that, even for that short period of time. I'm happy that you hold her in such high regard and I'm sure she is too.

Greg - I am forever grateful that I had the chance to know and love her, even if only briefly
