A year ago today, I woke up at 6 a.m. and immediately checked Facebook, breathing a little sigh of relief that nothing had changed since I reluctantly went to bed several hours before.
I got ready for the day, went to Mass, and ate breakfast, praying fervently all the while. When I got back and checked Facebook again, Kyle had posted the news that Vivian Marie had passed away.
Yesterday, those of us who remember celebrated her birthday into this world. Today, those of us who remember celebrate her birthday into Heaven.
We still miss you, baby girl.
