It's been three months already

I know people who didn't know Michael personally might not understand, but those who did know him will. It doesn't seem possible that he's been gone that long. I still hear the screams when each family member was told. The looks of stunned disbelief that such a bright shining light was gone too fast.

I look at the last photo I ever took of him, he's dancing with his aunt at her wedding. He looked so grown up and handsome in that tux. Who would have ever thought that would be the last photo ever taken of him? If I had even the slightest idea, I would have taken hundreds of him that day. I have a little video tape of him from that day, but of course, we focused on the bride and groom. Again, if only...

A wise man once said, "the saddest words are these, what might have been." I understand that completely. Michael could have been anything he wanted, but was never given the chance.

I miss you, Michael. Until we meet again, I'll love you forever and a day.
