I haven't worked on this date in 14 years.

in 2004 I had just started the 1st new job I got after my daughter was killed on 19Jul2001. i started the job on the 15th and when the 19th rolled around I thought I cannot take a day off 4 days into the job. so i showed up and as soon as my new boss asked how i was, I fell apart.
"This is a sad anniversary..."
Now my job has required me to be here and working today. I am sitting at the site crying. She's been dead for 17 years and I can't believe she's even DEAD. But she is, she is, and i have to work. Bekah give me the wherewithal to do what i have to do. Love forever.

thanks for the indulgence DU.
