New Old Pictures

My oldest daughter Stephanie put some pics she had taken between 2006 and 2008 on my facebook. I had never seen these pics before. In them, Kaitlyn does not quite look 18. Perhaps she is 16 to 17ish. These are various pics. One at a hibotchi restuarant, some are with Kaitlyn’s then boyfriend Jonathan. They dated for 2 years in high school. Some are of me and Kaitlyn together and if you will look at her head you will see the head I smelled and kissed one billion times at least. It smelled so good. Some are at my Mom’s, some are at Stephanie’s house. I even included one of my Miata that I had from 2006 to 2011.

At the end is a video of a song that says many of the things I feel…..but when all is said and done, I’m glad I saw the sunshine.

Below: I just took this one last week. It’s one of Kaitlyn’s self portraits she drew when she was a senior in hight school. When Kaitlyn died I gave it to my mom and she matted and framed it and it hangs in her living room.


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..

    Hi. I lost the love of my life on July 4th 2013.

    My name on the forums is “farfigneugan”.

    I’m wondering if you know how Jonathan is holding up?

    I don’t ever see or talk to Jonathan except for a few messages from him when I had something I needed to ask him. It causes him a great deal of pain to talk about it, so he doesn’t. They had been broken up for 5 years when she died and had remained friends. They dated 2 years in high school and he’s a very nice young man.

    I’m so sorry for your loss.
