I Still Miss You

Today, I realised that I probably always will.

A friend sent me a link to someone’s post on Tumblr. A young man named Liam learns that someone he loves has been hurt. He desperately texts her, hoping to find out she’s ok. Later, he finds out she isn’t. She’s been taken from him by a drunk driver.

Time passes, and although she’s still gone, he continues to text her, thinking that maybe he’ll wake up from this nightmare. He texts her until his final message is rejected – her phone number no longer works.

I guess it hit a little close to home. I lost you to a drunk driver, too, Vicki. After you were gone, I continued to send you messages. An email every now and then, wishing for one last opportunity to make you smile. I kept sending those emails until my final message was rejected – your mailbox went offline.

After all these years, I realised that I will probably always miss you. And after all these years, I realised that that’s ok. For if you still exist in my memory, then you’re never truly gone. And if a time comes when everyone else has forgotten you, know that I will always think of you fondly.

    I found this on twitter like three days ago and im still crying for this. I tried to find out the whole story and find who is Danni’s boyfriend. But because of im from Turkey it was sooo hard to find. I can speak English but it was really hard to find the real Danni. I was searching it but theres so much Danni (danniella or whatever) on the net. Finally i got this. Thanks God. Im sooooooooo sad for three days and i cant sleep bc of that. Im sorry about your lost and hope you are okay now. I wanna listen all the story and lean when did this happen? If you see me please answer me because im about to die for learning this. -to who is Danni’s boyfriend or anyone who know the story.
