We'll light a candle on Keely's grave Christmas Eve and stay until the flame dies. Her stocking will be hung with the stockings of her brothers. We'll wonder what might've been and miss her. Most of all, we'll give thanks that we had her at all.
For anyone missing a child or any loved one on Christmas, wishing you gentle days ahead and peace in the darkest moments.
