May She Rest in Peace (heartbroken)

Jenn's Favorite Flower

Without warning, life changes in a heartbeat.

Say I love you, say thank you, say I’m sorry, say you mean the world to me; say it to everyone, say it every day.

I answered the phone this afternoon to the words, “Jenn died.” I don’t know what to say, I’m a writer and I have no words. Jenn said, “I love you” at the end of every phone conversation. I loved her so much because she was so much not like me, totally unafraid to be anyone but herself. Jenn said what she meant and meant what she said. She was fiercely loyal, honest, funny, and true.

We lost touch for a few years, and I’m so grateful to the friend who helped her find me on Facebook. I only got to see Jenn and spend time with her a few times in the past few years, but we spoke often, sometimes daily. I can’t imagine my life without her in it.

Rest in peace my friend. I’m lost without you.
