Being strong is so hard

I have been reading as much as I can on how to manage grief with a child and the best way to handle everything. Every time Sophie brings you up it is so hard not to break down into tears. From reading I know that I am suppose to stay strong so she does not associate bringing you up with making me sad. The problem is that is exactly what makes me the saddest. I want her to be able to talk about you and share memories about you without feeling like I am going to utterly break down because that is exactly what is going on under the surface.

Bryna and Ross left early this morning and headed back home. I was sad to see them go but appreciated the company and distraction a great deal. I know Sophie loved having them here. She will see them again in a couple of weeks when she goes down to Winnie and Galveston with your mom and dad for the family reunion. It is so important for her to stay deeply involved with your family. 

I miss you honey. So much.
