My prayers today for all the daddies who have to live without a piece of their heart. And to the one who lives with us… I have seen the tears and the anger and the pain. I know you carry her shoes around in your backpack and so much hurt in your heart. Of the last things Cede did on this earth, the one that I remember so vividly is her putting her little hand on your face and telling you she loved you. She loves you still. So do we.
