Five Years Ago

Five years ago I was happily married to Mark and we were living in a beautiful home in Glen Ellyn, IL. Five years ago my heart hadn't known the depth of pain that it does now. Five years ago today Mark was still alive. They say that time heals, and it does, but it doesn't forget.

I have come a long way in healing since May 3, 2007. I have embraced life as best as I can and I am even engaged to a wonderful man who has honored my love for Mark. I know that Mark would want this for me. He would want this for all of us. He was that kind of guy.

I loved Mark with all of my heart and I always will. He made me a better person and I am forever grateful for the time I had with him. Great people may come and go in our lives for they are not ours to hold onto, but they will leave a lasting imprint. I am positive that if you knew Mark, he left a lasting imprint on you. As the five year anniversary of his death approaches, I would love to hear how he did this. Whether it is an old memory or a comment about how he impacted you in life or death, please share. Let's share with the intent to not only remember him, but to remind us to live again fully.

We love you Mark.
