To my graduate – I vow to pray for you every single day for the rest of my life. When you cross my mind at stoplights, I will pray for you. When my minds drifts away in boring meetings, I will pray for you. When I awake in the middle of the night, at 3:27 a.m., I will wait until 3:33 a.m., the hour and the minute you were born, and I will pray. But, I awake every morning at 3 a.m.

I will pray for you every time I see a car like the one you drove or a dog like the one you loved. I will pray for you when I come across a scattered picture of you, the one I stuck between two books on the shelf. Or in a drawer. I had such good intentions to scrapbook our lives. And, I did. In my mind.

Juliette, Juliette. Wherefore art thou? In my heart and hopes forever.
