we got together to remember

The memorial happened with tears and burst of laughter, moments of joy mixed with tender remembrances and bitter-sweet images sketched from the emotional testimonies of friends and family members who took to the podium to share what they felt.

Then they all went home and the absence remained but a little less intense because some of the rawness of the wounds dissipated, pushed aside by the gentle healing this whole affair managed to offer us.
