Maddie’s 13th birthday was last week, on the 11th. It’s hard celebrating her birthdays without her, but this year’s milestone was especially painful. She’d be a teenager, her own person with her own interests. Not knowing who she’d have become is, for me, one of the hardest parts of her death. I don’t get to see something and think, “oh my gosh, Maddie would have thought this was hilarious,” like I can when something reminds me of Jackie. I wonder what her teenage style would be like, or what she’d find funny. Would she love TikTok like other teenagers? Would she like to write, like her sister? Or sing, like her brother? Would she love to tell jokes like both of her siblings? I hate not knowing, and I will hate it for the rest of my life.
