To this day, it is still very difficult to comprehend, not only for myself, but I believe for most people who were close to her. I continue to miss her with every waking day, but I have come to terms with her passing.
By leaning on my faith, family, and close friends the past two years have been a huge learning, growing, and healing process for myself. My faith is the strongest it has ever been throughout my life because after being upset for quite some time, I realized I needed to focus on the aspects of my life that would pull me out of that state. If it wasn't for my family, I don't know how I would have been throughout this time in my life. They are the ones who kept me on my feet and continue to do so. None of them will ever be able to know how thankfully I am.
I will continue to love and miss Shelby, but there comes a point in your life when you have to not necessarily let go but understand. Understand that there is nothing in your power that you can do. All you can do is hope and pray that they are happy wherever they are..
"Love is stronger than death even though it can't stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can't separate people from love. It can't take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death."
