wake


Right now, the sun is shining, the weather seems crisp and clear, but there is this feeling of sadness lingering. Shawna’s mom finally passed the other morning and is now resting with no more pain. No matter how beautiful these last days have been, it just feels unfair in a way. You feel less lively, less eager to jump out of bed. Its somber and quiet now, but all tangled with a sense of relief. I mean this with no disrespect. Only that, her struggle had been so long and hard fought, that it was finally right that she pass with no more pain.

I had grown to admire and love Kelly, her mom. She was a fighter, full of dry humor and always good for a quip. She was always very interested in what others had to say. She wanted to help, and be involved. Quiet at times, but truly outspoken when she felt it necessary.

I hung with the family at the hospital all weekend and got to hear amazing stories from her brothers as well as other members of the family. It was refreshing. Refreshing in a sense, that they deemed me worthy enough to hear about their past. Refreshing as well, to get to know the mother of my girlfriend better.

Today is the wake, tomorrow the funeral. We are preparing now and will be over there soon. I am looking forward to seeing more of their family, hearing more stories and being there for Shawna when she needs.

Good luck today beautiful, stay strong. Ill be there when you need it. Love you Santoro and Hughes families.
