I saw you just yesterday; we laughed and joked. You were nervous about the operation, but I assured you it would be ok. I lied.
Words cannot describe what I felt when I heard the news. Shock, denial, disbelief… pain. I see your face when I close my eyes; how can you be gone?
I walked past your office several times today, but I couldn’t look inside. The lights were off — I could feel the void. Tears flowed the hallways today. This may be just a job, but you were our family.
I cry for you, I cry for me, I cry for your family. You were loved, and you will be missed. I can’t say goodbye today; I’m not ready.
I’m so sorry for everything I never said. I hope you know I cared.
