a letter to an angel.

To an angel in heaven:

I miss you; so many people miss you and your infectious smile.  We miss your laugh and the light that you brought to any room even when you did not know it.  The thing I miss most is the way you had with people to encourage them and what they love to do.  You helped others to turn their passions into more than just projects.

Angel in heaven, your presence was out of this world.

There are so many things I would love to tell you about and wish you were here to see, but I realized you have the best seat in the house: heaven.  I know I cannot physically have those conversations with you like our conversations about art and spirituality, but you still hear me– you listen to the ones that you are no longer with.

April 6th, 2018. One of the best days of my healing after losing you.  The coolest thing?  I photographed the whole event to preserve these happy moments forever and look how happy people are; in honor of you.

One of the things I love most about my job is showing people the way they do not see themselves.  The way they should see themselves.  Angel in heaven, you had that gift too; but with your words, your smile, your laugh.

Thank you for that.  Thank you for the kind words and lasting conversations that will forever play on repeat over and over.

Love,
The ones who loved you
