Even in death

Today as my heart breaks, I am grateful for my friend's life. We'd lost touch over the years, but the time we spent together in our young lives was important to me and I've kept it close. We laughed together at a time when I was facing a rush to adulthood, becoming someone's mom. We sang together like drunk monkeys on those sweet summer nights by Shelby Lake. We cried together when his sister was taken from us in a car crash. We were family when he and my best friend decided to get engaged. We stayed family when they broke up. 

So many years have passed. This morning I found out that Bubba's place in my heart was still there. Now it's broken, but I'm grateful that we had the time that we did. I am blessed to have known him.
