My tears are running down my face. I lost my son in an accident and I wasn’t with him. It was hard to get through. But I think what you went through was even harder. I’ve always been thankful that my son’s death was quick and there was no pain. I don’t know if I could have handled watching him fight cancer and lose.
I’m very sorry that you had to go through this. Thank you for sharing how you handled it, even as you grieve. I grieve for you and hope you find peace as time passes the way I did. These memories are seared into our souls, but someday, I promise, they won’t hurt as much. Now, after 25 years, I remember the happy times more than the sorrow at the end. May you cherish always the love you and your son shared.
