I Wasn’t Ready To Say Goodbye To Olivia Mooney

I hate that I am so good at writing obituaries. Not because of any reputable amount of skill, but due to so much practice. I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to Olivia Mooney… I knew Livia for 8 years that’s roughly a third of her life. Half of that time we had young dumb romantic…
