Thinking of Torry

Today I am thinking of Torry McIntyre.
My beautiful niece who was killed in an awful car accident 2 years ago today.
(So let me share just a few of my favorite photos)
 
(Photo by one of Torry's friends)
 
4 teenagers died that horribly awful and life altering day.
 
(Me with Torry & her bunny and brother Cody)
 
(Me and my brother dancing with Torry)
 
(Jonathan, Torry and I going bonkers to some music, ha ha)
 
(Jonathan did this fun image of Torry long ago...I still find it so sweet)
 
I can't get into a car without thinking of her...
nor feel a sense of fear now whenever I am on the highway.
 
(one of my favorite photos of Torry with Jonathan)
 
She was only 18.  As beautiful and as full of life as we come.
 
(another photo by one of Torry's friends)
 
I think of her every day.
 
(and another beautiful photo by one of her friends)
 
Of the beautiful woman she was becoming....
of all the amazing & beautiful life she won't have that she so deserved.
 
 
I haven't been able to blog about it until now.  Not that it's easy now!
I just couldn't find or form the words.
 
Your missed desperately dear girl.
Every day this year I light a candle for you and hope that your happy & free somewhere 'up there'.

Mandy, I am so sorry. Neices are such wonderful gifts to us, it must be so hard without Torry. The love between you really shines from these pictures. Wish I could give you a big hug for real right now. Love and nose bonks, Sweetie.

Beautiful Terry... I can see how loved she was!! It is difficult to find the right words to console you, but try to keep memories of her fresh by thinking about her and sharing stories of her!
