Over the years I’ve gone from using shorthand like “u r gr8” as a kind of joke in texts to that just being how I text. I guess that’s how a lot of things in life work. All of us are going to die someday.
I think about you when you’re not around

Many Things — are fruitless —
'Tis a Baffling Earth —
But there is no Gratitude
Like the Grace — of Death —
