Today is Kate's birthday. I didn't think it would upset me that much, but it is a lot to grasp still and as soon as it showed up on FB, I got a lump in my throat. We weren't THAT close, but she is the one who convinced me to go to school & I just... always thought she'd be there. Same w/Dave. & I know that it's only gonna get harder as time goes on and those closest to me age. Sad part of life.
