Today marks 6 months since Rudy passed away. Rudy might have been small in stature and limited in his physical and cognitive abilities but his presence was so big. He filled whatever space he was in and I’ve said many times in the last few months that losing Rudy was like losing a small dinner party. His absence cuts so deep and has changed the landscape of our space forever. To say I miss him isn’t sufficient but I just can’t capture the depth of my longing in words today…only in groans.
‘Love you deeply Rudy! Your joy and enthusiasm continue to inspire us… may you experience the love behind our longing today!
Rolf captures it well in the tribute he posted on social media this morning:
of silence so deafening
Of an ache deeper than words
Only because we never knew smiles could be that big,
laughter could be that full,
and any moment could contain such bottomless joy.
I love you, Rudy.
