Crevé - French for broken
My brother Jonathan's tattoo for Julie. 
Two years.  731 days.  17, 544 hours.  That's how long it's been since Julie decided to end her life and broke the hearts of so many.  Back then I didn't know how I'd be able to live with such constant heartbreak.  Mercifully, I've learned that broken hearts heal and life goes on.  Today I'll think of Julie with sorrow, along with joy, love and laughter. I'm certain I'll also cry floods of great big, burning tears.  I know many others will also cry for her today because she truly was a delight.  

I love and miss you sis.  

"When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight." ~ Kahlil Gibran

  1. Fun pictures. The race picture is actually the Thanksgiving day turkey trot in Ogden.

  2. Thanks for sharing some of my favorite photos of our sweet Jules. Love you.

  3. Loving photo tribute...

  4. This is a beautiful post, Keicha. The photos so capture what I've read about Julie. I know it was too short a time to be together, but so many don't even have that. I am so sorry for your loss and sad for all your family. My thoughts are with you.

  5. What a lovely tribute to you beautiful sister. I came over from your mom's blog. My son also took his life. My heart is aching for you.

  6. A beautiful, painful tribute. Thank you for sharing with us.

  7. This post evokes too much emotion to the extent that a stranger like me can't help but be moved by it. ~ Ed Butowsky
