It’s October – and Lindsay’s birthday month. I already feel sad for you, Lindsay, knowing what is to come. I’m praying that your enduring gifts of strength and grace help you through this difficult day without Shawn.
With all my heart, I wish for you…
comfort in the precious memories of your sweet, handsome Shawn and his Gracie girl
understanding so that the one question you’ve asked over and over is answered if only in your heart
sad days where you can cry and you don’t have to be strong for anyone else
healing to rise above the loss and pain with love and acceptance of this tragedy
brighter days where your joy is greater than your saddest grief
hope that your passion for life returns with renewed meaning and purpose
and most of all, I wish you happiness – simple and true – just as you shared with your very dear Shawn Michael.
Happy birthday, sweet daughter – I love you with all my heart.
