Anniversary of My Son's Death
« on: June 20, 2011, 07:34:23 PM »
The 20Th of June is a hard day for me. My eldest son died eleven years ago…6-20-2000. I have been able to move on but I have never "gotten over it." I honestly don't think anyone who has lost a child fully recovers. He would have been 63 this October. I know there's nothing anyone can say or do, I just wanted to share where I am and how I feel.

Thank you. I just felt I wanted to acknowledge what's going on with me.

I'm glad you shared, Luise.  You've gone through a lot; more than one person should have to.  He understands you now, all you've wanted to convey over the years.  I have no doubt you were an excellent mother to both your boys, Luise.  Lord knows you've been a darn good surregate

I wasn't finished...  I was looking up how to spell surrogate & hit the post button by accident.  I was saying, you've made a darn good surrogate mother for us!

Thanks everyone. All of the above is why I posted, I suppose. When we feel alone and reach out it can be so reassuring.

Today, is the first day of summer and is symbolic of the fullness of life. Every year that cheers me up.  :)

I am very sorry for your loss.  You are a wonderful woman.  One of the ways you've handled the loss, by directing energies to helping others with challenges with their families, is something I deeply admire about you.

I agree with Sassy.  You're in my thoughts Luise.
