It wasn’t just the life they had as one.
It was that no matter what life brought their way, they’d be one.
It was walking the mountaintops and traversing the valleys.
It was being beside and behind and for each other.
It was overcoming the hardships and celebrating the victories.
It was life with each turn and bend and change and shift.
It was this right here where they were.
And it was that right there where they were going.
They were family.
Through every season.
Brother, sister, husband, wife, daughter, son, friend.
Bound by memories, by lineage, by blood.
