Just a Memory

The words to this song on this video have nothing whatsoever to do with Kaitlyn. But I have a nice memory attached to the song. One day I was sitting on the couch and a music channel was on TV. Probably VH1. I come across the most amazing videos just by chance this way. I’m usually doing something else and it catches my ear. Anyway a few years ago this song came on the series “Unplugged” and I was just mesmerized. It was Adele singing “Rolling in the Deep.” I had never heard this song before because it had just come out and I had never heard of Adele before. I fell in love with this song, fell in love with Adele and now own the few CDs (I think only 2) that she has put out.

Sometimes if I saw something I liked, or thought Kaitlyn might like, I would put it on her Facebook. This usually just included cat videos and the like. She did not like all popular music (but some she did) and her taste in music was very eclectic and many of the singers she listened to I had never heard of before. She introduced me to many kinds of music I had never listened to.

So I heard this song and I just had to send it to Kaitlyn on FB and she actually commented that she loved the song. (She had never heard it either). Kaitlyn never, ever said she liked anything if she really didn’t. But she liked this. So I gave her a copy of the CD that the song was on. When Kaitlyn died, I found the CD in her table drawer in front of her couch. She had probably never even listened to it and I think that song was the only one she liked. But that is ok.

So this song reminds me of her. Not the recorded version, but this live version on “Unplugged.”

My name is Rhonda. I'm a registered nurse, for the last 20 years, that has not been able to work since the day I learned of my daughter's death by suicide 4-12-13. (She actually died 4-11-13 and her body was not found until the 12th) Me and my husband have been married for 32 years and he's a wonderful man. We grieve in different ways. He works, I write. This is my journey through this horrible land of losing a child..
