I had my graduation pictures taken last night. My brother Jeremy was my biggest cheerleader for me going back to school for my Masters. He was so supportive and gave me the motivation to continue when things got difficult. He was with me every step of the way until he died unexpectedly 10 weeks before I finished my program. I honestly have no idea how I even finished school m, I’ve been so consumed by grief. I chose to get my photos done at the park across the street from Jeremy’s house. It was his favorite place in the city. Sometimes it was a matter of smiling through tears but I got them done. I really felt his presence out there with me. This one was one of my favorites. I’m thankful I got to honor him and have him there with me in the way that he could be now.
