I haven't been able to bring myself to completely eliminate the traces of Erica in my life. Each time I call my husband I scroll passed Erica's name in my phone. It makes me sad. But pushing delete is not easy for me. I feel like I need the reminder of what I've lost. I'm not ready to accept the finality of her death. I feel that when I push delete, I'm saying it's okay that she's gone. And it's NOT okay.
We all grieve in our own way. So if you've already pushed delete that's a good thing. Each of us will deal with these issues in our own time frame. Maybe the next time I see you, you'll take my phone and do it for me.
