Ida I am so sorry you also had the pain of losing a child. That pain never really goes away, but it lessens over time. After 26 years, the hurt has receded and the happy memories have taken over most of my thoughts. It’s no longer the first thing we think of in the morning, but the tears still come when we remember that day and that moment we found out he was gone. Today it’s more as though he grew up and left home to begin his adult life. Except instead, God took him to his eternal home where he will only know love.
