1 year ago today, I held you for the first and last time, Willow. You were handed to me in a soft purple blanket while there was still a faint heartbeat. I took in every second. Memorized every detail of your beautiful existence.
You may have only lived for a little over 16 hours, but in that time you knew more love than most do in 80+ years. I am eternally grateful for your life. I’m just sorry my body failed you.
