This past 7 months have been really hard on me and my family. March 10th my only son and baby of the family passed away. I think that we are all still in a state of shock and disbelief because we were all with him just three days before his death. My heart hurts so bad that it is a real physical pain there and I believe that I will always have the pain of that loss, but I must learn to walk again with that pain. Without our belief in our God and Father, I don't know what we would do. I found a very special support group on line and the link is below.
With the holidays coming up and family gatherings, it will be especially difficult. There will always be that empty chair. Praying for peace and comfort for all.
Please God forgive the silent tear,
A constant wish that he was here.
Others were taken yes, we know,
But he was ours and we loved him so.
He bid no one a last goodbye.
He was gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.
If all the world was ours to give
We'd give it all and more to see
That loving face of his once more.
For those who have someone who
Means a lot, treasure them with care,
For you never know their value
Till you see their vacant chair.

Loved with a love beyond all feeling
Missed with a grief beyond all tears.
Miss you my "Boo Boo" and I will love you forever and always. Watch over us and let us feel your hugs and see the heart clouds.
