A year ago I was introduced to a beautiful woman with an even more beautiful soul. Clare Clarissa Nina Castellano passed away in October of last year. She will always be with me as I move forward with my recovery journey.

With Clare, when I got her to smile I had a whole world to build a life with her, and when I got her to laugh, it was the entire universe.

This is a screen capture from her Facebook page you will no longer see on her Facebook page. It means everything good and kind I loved about her.

Happy Anniversary,  Clare. I miss you. I love you always.
