Losing Someone

Today I found out that my cousin passed away. His daughter is young, in her 20s, and has been struggling with this for a while. It was inevitable. She posted on Facebook today that her father had passed and my heart is breaking for the whole family.

I remember being just a little older than her when I lost both my parents. It’s so hard. You aren’t ready to let go and yet you have to. I am a few hundreds of miles away and can’t be there. I’m sitting here crying for all of them, but especially that young cousin who is so like me.

I pray that she can find strength through this and recognize that her father isn’t hurting anymore. It’s hard to do, though, when the only thing you want is to hold your Daddy’s hand and not let go. She’s young and has had to deal with a lot.

Man, today is a reminder of a day 15 years ago.
