Our family lost Misty to addiction less than a month ago. Her battle with alcoholism took her young life way too soon and we all miss her every second of every day. Through us, her story will continue.
After Misty passed, so many people (family, friends, and just people she had met through blogs) posted about how much she had changed their lives...how much she meant to them. Here are just a few of the quotes that give my family and I a little comfort knowing that even though she was only here for 39 years, she did great things and was very LOVED!
"Your infectious smile & beautiful eyes will stay with me forever. I'm so glad you don't have to fight anymore. Rest in peace my sweet friend. You will forever hold a piece of my heart"... "You're what kept me going through all my rough times and made me realize that there was always someone out there thinking about me...please know, wherever you are, that I'm thinking of you, and sending my love"... "I don't think I have ever thought of you as a cousin, you have always been my sister and I always will be. I love you Misty Lynn"... "We had so many great times at Hood. All like sisters just learning military life and dealing with deployments together as one group. She will be sorely missed and never forgotten".... "You had one of the most genuine hearts I ever had the pleasure to know, and I will miss seeing it. I will keep you in my mind and heart and I am grateful for the chance to say I was friend's with you."... "We clicked with each other and we would always sit and talk on breaks and lunch. She always talked about her kids and how great they were. We talked about everything else about life as well. Being the same age as her kids, I loved the mother-daughter like talks. I was sad to see her leave to another store but I was always happy for her and all to come. Hate to see a good person go. Misty won't be forgotten" ..."Misty was a special person. Her smile was contagious. She was always helping others and her giving ways inspired me."..."My dear Misty your smile brought so much happiness to everyone. What a bright and full of life young lady. I felt blessed to know you. May your family find comfort and peace"..."Gone too soon but never forgotten. You're a beautiful soul that helped me see the light when I was deep in the dark. I enjoyed getting to know you. Fly high my friend!!" ..."I know your angel wings are going to be busy... but what a beautiful angel you are"..."Misty Lynn, you always wanted us to apply for The Amazing Race and travel the world. Well you are now on your own amazing travels so until we meet again I will miss you and think of you every day" ..."Your angel wings were ready, but my heart was not"... "Misty, we love you to the moon and back"
