I am a shell of my former self.

Meeting you, Alex, was one of the best things to ever happen to me. You helped me grow into myself — the Sara I want to be. I’m not there yet, but I was getting there with you.

Losing you is like losing my other half. Your adventurous, spontaneous side complemented my careful one. You opened my eyes, my ears and my heart. (My mind was already open.) I was really learning, I was really living.

I gained so much with you; feeling whole again is going to take me a while.
