later in the book (like 8-9 years later) it mentions how all the events that happened because of what happened to her intersect and fill and cover the hole she left,

pg 319-320
As i watched my family sip champagne, I thought about how their lives had trailed backward and forward from my death and then, I saw as Samuel took the daring step of kissing Lindsey in a room full of famiily, became borne aloft away from it.
These were the Lovely Bones that had grown around my absence; the connections- sometimes tenuous, sometimes made at great cost, but often magnificent- that hap happened after I was gone. And i began to see things in a way that let me hold world without me in it. The events that my death wrought were merely the bones of a body that would become whole at some unpredictable time in the future.
I know you'll come back someday
On a bed of nails awake
I'm praying that you don't burn out
Or fade away

You're falling back to me
The star that I can't see
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there

You're falling out of reach
Defying gravity
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
-Our Lady Peace
