Is it any easier? No it is not. The laughter that used to reverberate in this house is gone. The smile that lit the rooms is no longer here. The hug that I need more that anything is never going to be felt again. But I am okay. I am moving forward. Our family is getting into our new routine, our new life a little more each day. There is never a second that Artie is not on our minds and in our hearts. I still cry, I still ache and at times, I still forget to breath. But, we are blessed with much love in our family and this keeps me going.
