total hearts received for Moments That Survive


In honor of Charlene Lauricella

The day my life changed…forever.

My baby girl is, was, and always will be, the love of my life. Charlene would light up every room she walked in to. Until that split second of a single moment when the circumstances of her life overwhelmed her. She struggled, (as we all do)….She battled depression, drug addiction, feelings of hopelessness, etc. …But …having easy access to “a permanent solution to a temporary problem” seemed like the most viable option in her moment of desperation.

The day she died, she took me with her. I will never recover. I will never be the same. I don’t even want to try to be.
