On Tuesday, I went to the funeral of my classmate that passed away. While the funeral was lovely and really suited her, it was horrible at the same time. I carpooled with a couple of friends, and the whole way there, we couldn’t believe that we were driving to the funeral of one of our classmates, our friend, someone our age. We’re too young for this. This is the kind of thing you see in movies, or hear about, and think “this will never happen in my life.” But it did.
And while the funeral was one of the hardest things I’ve done, it helped me to find closure and really accept what has happened. With each day, it’s getting easier to move on because now I finally understand.
