Today, I take another tack. Today, I am thankful for the online service of Facebook because Mark Z. has done something for our family that no other venue has done. They recorded a piece of my daughters life that is now archived for simple access during our Makenzie Moments.
Photos, news feeds, pokes, pictures and videos, all wrapped together in a package of digital memories of her short but well-lived life. The access provides remembrances. The files give laughter. The data brings her back to life, if only for a short, emotional while.
So to Facebook. Today I salute you. For holding the past and delivering it to our present. And now, five years since Makenzie’s home going, we close down her Facebook account which, I guess, is another sign of our journey of grief and healing.
