1 2 3 gone

I really don’t like seeing his obituary on the page like that. The comments on the website are all “He was an amazing person,” and “I’m sure he’s happy where he is.” I hate obituaries. They all make it seem final and fake, and they give me no sense of closure whatsoever. What hits me the hardest is the “Leaving behind ____.” No, they haven’t left us behind. We are not defined by them and it’s not like they have actually left. Not really. Really.
