Morgan loved her keyboard and played it almost every day, from the moment she acquired it. Listening to her play her music and sing was always the highlight of my day. After Morgan died we packed her keyboard away…all these years it never again would play her beautiful music. We left it in storage, along with so many more things of Morgan’s. Last week our son Ryan unpacked Morgan’s keyboard.
Steve & I had finally taken Morgan’s keyboard out of storage, and we gave it to Ryan for our grandchildren to use. It was hard, but I knew Morgan was happy we did it. We realized that it wasn’t right that it was hidden away in storage all these years and never used. Our little 8-year-old grandson had recently gone to his great grandparent’s house, and without any training, he started playing their piano…when I heard this, I just knew our grandchildren needed Morgan’s keyboard. They used to call Morgan their Aunt Gigi, and now they have Gigi’s keyboard to continue playing beautiful music. Boy, does this planet need more music or what? I think so…
Anyway, Ryan unpacked the keyboard the other night and set it up – they sent us a text and said as soon as it was unpacked they all started crying. Yes, Morgan’s death still hurts everyone, not just us, her parents, but so many others all these years later.
Getting justice for Morgan won’t bring her back, and it won’t give anyone closure, BUT we still fight and wait for the knowledge and peace that comes when justice is served.
