This is lovely and brought treats to my eyes. I love you back! Your comment about writing there was something I've never thought of. I think we will be around, afterwards. Like the day that snow fell exactly on my head just as I ran under a tree. I know it was dad, laying in the treetops. I imagined him chuckling in his way, after.

I will watch for your letters, but not for a really really long time.

I wonder often if today will be my last day. I know it sounds morbid. But really I do. I have a list of people Sam can marry if I die. I have my funeral planned. I have my goodbye letters written (I add another part of the letter every year for each kid) I'm not afraid of dying. I'm afraid of how hard it will be on the people I love. But me dying early is a very really possibility.
There was 10 of us that got diagnosed around the same time. There are only 4 of us left now. We grew up together. We became the best of friends. We shared first kisses and first dates. We all lived with the same disease. One of us passed 10 days ago. He was healthy. He was married with 3 kids, the youngest only 4 months old. He was in good control. He went to sleep, went low and just didn't wake up. I go low during the night all the time, one night I might not wake up so I try to live every day that it would be ok if it was my last... some days go better than others.

Even though I don't really know you, I do, through your blog. I love you too, Amy. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and beautifully crafted writing.

Loved this post. SO touching and well-written. I've had to think about sudden death these past two weeks as well. Two people. In the end, I decided that all we can do is live our best lives everyday, and make sure that the people we love know that we love them every day.
