It’s Been 8 Months Today……

…….since my beautiful Kaitlyn took her own life.

She was 17 here and just before going to the prom standing in front of our Wisteria. That sweet smelling Wisteria. Kaitlyn died when our Wisteria were in full bloom years later.

“What is the final truth, then? Is it that they live, that there’s beauty in existing as you are?”

About gatito2

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..

    A friend of mine took his own life last Tuesday. I know what it feels like to lose a loved one by that. I will admit, a mother daughter relationship is much different than a friend relationship.

    Thank you. She was. She still is beautiful somewhere…..


  13. Yes. I wrote it present tense because I know to you she is still very present in your thoughts. I meant it in the kindest way.


  14. gatito2 says:

    Oh yes, I realized you put it in present tense, I was not offended, 🙂 I just wanted to say she was somewhere even though I know you know….I just felt the need to say it again. I know you meant it in a kind way and I promise that is how I took it. Thank you for your kind words. It means so much to me.
