#Repost @zmyersofficial: ..this job is beautiful ... But this job can also cause some of the worst pain I’ve ever felt .... yesterday afternoon my family suffered an insurmountable loss .... I lost an aunt .. My aunts lost a sister... My cousins lost a mother.... And my mother lost her best friend of the 50+ years ... And our family lost the funniest , craziest fun person we had in it ..... The only person to cut my hair from birth till I was about 30 years old ...... When things like this come out of nowhere .... you feel like you have nowhere to put your pain and your grief and your anger and your questions ..... and even your rage at why this would happen so early to someone who meant so much to her family .... She was the youngest of a group of 5 sisters tighter than anyone I have ever seen in my life These 5 women TRULY shaped every one of me and my cousins ....... our hearts , our work ethic , who we became as adults we learned from watching these 5 women and our mamaw .... I can barely read what I’m typing right now .... my eyes are swollen I hurt for my mother and my aunts .... and Hope and Grayson .... and my family .... My mother and my aunt lived 200 feet from each other ..... inseparable would be the understatement of the century. They spent everyday together ..... I wish I could be home right now ..... but alas lies the downside of this job ..... But I will choose to remember Sonja Torkell Gridley As probably my biggest fan other than my mother ...... if I was playing within 300 miles she’d be there with my mom ...... I just found this photo .... and it sums it all up perfectly ..... and I will always remember her like this ...... I’m so sorry that you’re gone .... and I’m so sorry that I’m not there I love you. . . But I know you’re now with someone who loved you more than all of us .... Mamaw’s baby girl is back by her side And that truly is the only comfort I have ...... I love you Aunt Sonja .... I’ll see you tonight dancing behind the soundboard ...... - Michael Zachary Myers .... #zachmyers #shinedown
