When you are 17 years old, you never really think that you would lose someone so close to you. My girlfriend Julie was diagnosed with Luekimia back in the early 90's. It started in her legs and moved to her whole body after that. She went through many rounds of chemo and it would go away for a few months but the cancer was way too strong and throughout her whole body. She passed away in 1995. When I went to her wake, people weren't understanding why I was crying so much. Even her mother said why are you so upset? I thought that was the worst thing someone could have said to me at that time, especially her mother. The grieving still happens with me and I am 28 years old. It remains very fresh in my mind. Does anyone know why I still think about this constantly? How do I get closure?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
