Love you to the moon and back – #griefheart number 84

Love you to the moon and back
Love you to the moon and back

Randy used to read Charles the book, “Love you to the Moon and Back.” When he picked up his phone last week and typed in his password, there it was in his face. It took his breath away because he had not even thought about that book and had not looked it up. I smiled and told him he’d gotten his first “sign” from Charles.

I was stumped until today on how to illustrate the concept of a moon and a heart when I saw the swiss cheese in our refrigerator. Even though he’s no longer alive, I love Charles to the moon and back. And I always will.
