In memory of Jaime Guttenberg

Here is my 14-year-old cousin’s eulogy that I wrote.

I am forever changed.
As the dark clouds rolled in, a graceful butterfly fluttered across the sky.
Just then, I pictured the way you would glide across the dance floor.
In an instant, a fierce wind blew wildly through the trees.
I remembered your determination and how you never quit when things got tough.
A downpour of sadness has taken over our hearts.
But when the sun peeks out from the clouds and glistens on a puddle,
It will remind me of how your bright smile can light up the darkest room.
I hope you are somewhere still dancing Jaime.
