I can’t believe it’s been 4 months
My dearest Evelyn,
Today marks the day that 4 months ago you left us with no explanation. We still don’t know where you were going, what you were doing, or who you were with.
There are times when I don’t miss your presence, but I think that is because you are with me. The times I hurt the most are the times that I think you’ve gone off somewhere else.
We went to a fashion show last night, your mother and I. It was Exhibit Ambush. Antoinette did another fabulous job putting together a great show. You would have looked great walking in that show, and I saw you in many of the models that walked.
There were many people who I knew that came up to ask how we were doing and to offer assistance. Some of them were people you know, some weren’t.
I shot some photos last night. I tried to do what I do. Some turned out OK, while others did not. I want to start taking photos again. I think that is what is missing most of all now that you are gone. I wish we had worked together more, but I was angry with you. I took it for granted that you would always be there. I’m sorry.
Today we are going to choose a tree that is to represent your life. It will be planted in Lake Poway, in the grassy area where it overlooks the lake. We are planning your birthday celebration at that park, near that tree.
I just want you to know that we love you and miss you every day. All of us, even your bratty brother. I hope that someday we find peace and I hope that we can go on with our lives while learning to live without you.
You are always in our hearts.
Dad, Mom, Jonathan, and Jeremiah
