Emma has a way of adding words to the painful aftermath of a devasting loss. She just knows. And for that I will always be sorry. But there is a weird validation which is needed when you find yourself existing as an alien after your world blows up when unnatural out of order death occurs. Our loved ones were not spares. Their absence changes everything. We may look the same, but trust me the moment-to-moment way we live our lives are forever changed. Yes, one person is that important in some of our lives.
