Happy Birthday, Betsey Pearl

Bonny Baby Betsey

11 years ago my first daughter died of cancer. This is what I wrote on her birthday that year, with slight updates since. Today would be Betsey’s 15th birthday. Happy Birthday, sweetheart, it’s been a long time and always getting longer.

Every Monday we do a “Betsey minute” where we go over some little incident of her life, or detail of her experience.

It is a routine now.  But there are times when the grief is still fresh.
