I'm sorry to all the people I'm leaving behind. Thank you for loving a person like me; I never deserved all the wonderful people I once knew and the love you once gave to me. I wish I could've been a better girlfriend, a better friend, a better daughter, and most of all, a better person for you all. I have treasured everything you have given me - your love, your kindness, and your support. Unfortunately I don't think I can do this any longer and it's probably time I said goodbye. I know that the world will do so much better without me in it and I can do little more than say sorry to everyone I hurt over the past few years. If there is a place after death, then I hope I will see you all again there. Good luck and best wishes. You're all beautiful people and, in the next life, I hope I can be as half as wonderful as you. Thank you.goodbye letter
"These were the lovely bones that had grown around my absence: the connections-sometimes tenuous, sometimes made at great cost, but often magnificent-that happened after I was gone. And I began to see things in a way that let me hold the world without me in it. The events that my death wrought were merely the bones of a body that would become whole at some unpredictable time in the future. The price of what I came to see as this miraculous body had been my life.
