I won’t actually miss it, I’ll pay close attention, but I will miss the pleasure of discussing it with you on a daily basis.

Just last month I was packing away some of the mementos of Abby’s youth and I lingered, lost in several minutes of memories, over the glove we bought when she started Little League baseball.
