K came into our lives a couple years ago when husband got sober and reached out to her. They had worked together for a short time and he had her on his heart. Over the past year and a half she was a regular at our home. If we played tennis, she was the first one we called to join us. She was lousy, just the perfect match for me lol. husband would pick her up and take her to meetings. She just couldn't stay sober. She went into inpatient treatment and was sober for a while, but her pain was just so intense. We saw her Sunday, she came over with some other friends and we played bocce and she hugged me with intensity. That was the last we saw her. She disappeared after the meeting Sunday night and yesterday they found her body in a pond, her purse and phone nearby. She drowned. We have no further details yet. I suggested to manster that he write a letter to her parents (she still lived with them and had just turned 25) telling them how much we loved her. He wrote a beautiful letter. She was like a daughter to husband and he is just devastated. But he has a lot of support from friends and family. I called his sons and asked them to hang around for a while and they agreed. It's just still such a shock. We will miss her so much. All I can think about is I wish I would have told her more how much she meant to us. I have a favor. It probably seems silly but please humor me. Please tell one person today that you love them and that they matter. It would mean a lot to me and help me in the acceptance of such tragedy.
