This is my second Christmas without you, although it feels like the first. Last Christmas, you had been gone barely a few months, and I hadn't had time to wrap myself around the Holiday as I have this year. While I knew it was Christmas, it felt more like I had been devastated by the loss of a friend such a short time ago, and I had.
Now, it's been a little over a year, and I've had some time to get into the Christmas spirit, so I want you to know... I love you and I miss you. With every twinkling light, shiny star, Christmas ornament, I miss you more, but I see you and I feel you. I see you in every decorated store, on every decorated porch, and tonight as I walk Osito, I see you in every smiling face.
You absolutely loved Christmas. I'd watch you drift off to sleep as you'd stare endlessly at every single glowing light or decoration. So this Christmas, I'll shed tears, but only for a while, because it's the same smiling joy that came over your face during this time, that I'll hold onto. Always and forever, Ally. To the moon and back.
To our followers. If you enjoy reading these letters, please support us on our Patreon network where more letters will be posted in the new year to come as I finally am able to hold onto the good memories and let go of the bad. We receive a lot of grief from trolls here on Facebook, and such more personal Letters to Ally will not be kept here. Your monthly subscription of just $1 helps Osito and I so much more than you know because it gives us a monthly income we can prove in order to find and maintain a home in addition to our store.
Our store doesn't make much yet, and we appreciate your help. We are almost to 100 Patrons. The link will be in our comments section on this post or in our about me on this page because Facebook will hide the post itself from you if we put it here before it has gained traction. Thank you. We love you to the moon and back. Always and forever.
