“Remembering” my Mom and the sudden loss of her 16 years ago today.
As if I could ever forget her!

But it was time to heal just a little more so I sent this privately and personally to the one involved in the car accident.

‘We share this day. It was the day our lives changed in a way that would change everything forever. I wanted you to know that I think of you sometimes and wonder how you are doing and hope that you have healed and are ok. I had prayed for you and your passenger that weekend as soon as I learned you both were in such bad shape. A friend of mine was a ER nurse at the time and would keep me posted on your recovery. When I saw you two years later at the courthouse (in the bathroom) I was overcome with emotion. My anger from grief turned into compassion and empathy in that moment because we were all “victims’ and we all suffered (including you and your family). Yes, I do think of my Mom every day and miss her terribly. I was so angry for so long for my loss and for the grief and loss my 10 yr. old experienced upon losing her Grammie after they had become so close. You are about the age I was when I lost my Mom. She had given me so much and so much to my daughter that her spirit truly lives on through us. And for that I am grateful. I’ve wanted to reach out to you before but I guess this was the time. I hope you can receive this well in the spirit of healing and forgiveness.
Take care of you and yours,
Katie McAlevey McMann’

I healed just little more.
