    Too Many

    I've lost quite a few, more than I care to name. I have cried for each as each took a part of me when they left. It's never easy to say goodbye but we do what we must to get by. I'll never forget the ones that left and will even shed a tear now and then, but I will go on.

    I have lost so many people.

    My grandfather, my aunt, my grandma, my uncle, a guy whom I was close to, my two younger cousins, a friend, and death sucks. Everyone wants to know what Heaven looks like but no one wants to die, and no one should have to. And most of these deaths were over the past three...
