6 Years; 6 Letters

With every anniversary of Lee’s death, I take the time to sit and write a letter to him. Since his death, six years ago today – there has been six letters. Each has been left at the cemetery…

 

July 22, 2012

Lee –

Some people don’t believe others change. I, on the other hand, am a firm believer that they do. Since you’ve been gone – 6 years – a lot around this world has changed, and I have changed (I’m not the type of person that wakes up early on a Sunday to hit the gym – a far cry from the girl who dreaded running ‘The Mile’ in gym class).

I often wonder: where you’d be; what you’d be doing; and how you would have changed from July 22, 2006 to now. The difficulty for me is that I’ll never know.

One thing I am most certain of – from the top of my head to the tips of my toes – is that you’d be by my side, for a friendship like ours never changes.

I love you; I miss you.

Teen Leaps From Seaside Heights Chairlift

Melanie Rossomando of Springfield “freaked out” when her chairlift ride high above the Seaside Heights, N.J. beach stopped as a thunderstorm approached, so she jumped, according to coverage by News12 New Jersey.

Rossomando went on to say that she decided to jump rather than risk being hit by lightning as she celebrated her 17th birthday. A YouTube video shows scared Rossomando kicking off her shoes and jumping off the Sky Ride as dark clouds and heavy winds roll in.

…I’d be right there with you, Rossomando.
