Sophie, this week is for you.
These efforts are in your honor.
The smiles on these kids’ (and adults’) faces are in part, because of you.
Because of you, I learned to deal with loss and guilt. I learned to deal with disappointment. I learned to appreciate the moment.
Friday is your day, lighting candles for you, playing music for you, missing you. It’s been a year. You’re happy there. Be happy, little one.
