What did you let go of this year? Whom did you let go?

I lost Lucy on March 27. It was the worst day of my year and one of the hardest days of my life. Yet, the worst moment was also a moment of epiphany. In an instant, she was gone forever, but (once the initial shock passed), as long as I was present, I could sense Lucy’s sweet loyalty and undying devotion. Tangibly. In my heart. And I still can. And I always will.
