Yesterday, I received a message from my girl husband that would turn my world upside down. Her gorgeous 44 year old husband and our friend, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly yesterday morning.
Guys, this isn’t meant to happen! It can’t be real, it can’t really be happening, can it?
The pain I feel at this loss is excruciating. Trying to imagine what Lisa is going through it unbearable for me. I’m terrified for her, for what lies ahead. For how one goes about picking up the pieces and carrying on with a shattered heart.
I can’t stop thinking this could be anyone of us. It could be my husband. It could be me. Did they kiss each other goodbye before he left for work yesterday. Did they say how much they loved each other before he left?
It’s so easy to say you’ll have a lifetime together but sometimes a lifetime is just not long enough, sometimes a lifetime can pass within the blink of an eye.
They had a beautiful, passionate and perfect love that was a privilege, as their friends to witness. They have a gorgeous little girl, just turned 4 years old. Travis was full of life. He was the cheekiest, naughtiest and funniest guy you could ever hope to meet. He was an amazing father who clearly loved his little girl completely and utterly. He was a dedicated and passionate husband.
I made a couple of calls on her behalf yesterday to let people know of his passing and Ava overheard the conversation, she is very sensitive about death since Loveness’s passing last year. And was very concerned that Isabella would no longer have a daddy. She was also very clingy with her own daddy last night. I keep thinking about Isabella and how this sweet little girl has lost so much in the blink of an eye yesterday.
This song has been playing over and over in my head since yesterday and I want to dedicate it to Lisa and most especially Isabella. Much love my dear girls, we love you.
Each day is not a guarantee, it’s a gift we need to embrace and I hate that it took such a horrible tragedy to remind me of that.
