A year... already?

I can't believe it has been a year since my dear Kiley-Jo got her wings and became an angel. I've missed her so much... I missed her being a part of my bachelorette party. I missed her being in my wedding. I missed seeing her over the holidays. I missed talking to her. I missed hearing her laugh. I missed our girl time. I missed her beautiful eyes. I've missed her.

I am so thankful to have had the privilege to call her one of my best friends for 8 wonderful years. The four of us had one of the strongest bonds I've ever seen. Each time we've gotten together over the last year, it just feels like something is missing. It is. Our dear Kiley completed us in a way no one else can. She was the perfect fit to our 4-piece puzzle. Our (future) children were going to grow up together. We were going to go on vacations together. We were going to grow into old ladies together. All we have now are the fabulous memories and I will cherish them forever.

Kiley was one of the most beautiful, funny, energetic, loving, athletic, sincere, devoted, true, honest, and God loving woman I have ever met. There aren't enough words to describe how truly amazing she was. The world was definitly a better place with her in it. I know that she is now in the most perfect place, where none of the problems of this sinful world can touch her.

It has taken me so long to write this post, most of it with tears streaming down my face. It is so difficult to talk about her in the past tense. It just doesn't seem right and my heart aches because I miss her so much. The only comfort I can find is knowing that I WILL see her again - in Heaven.

My dearest Kiley-Jo ~ I love you and always will....
