Repost from March 22, 2014...on JOY

Friday, September 22, 2017

Little did I realize that just a few days later, our son would have a massive heart attack and die. At the time, though, I was feeling pretty good about life.

Even though I will always miss him, we have to keep living and breathing every day of our life and because I know he was ready to go, and he touched so many lives while living and even though there will always be some pain when I think of him, he is always in my heart and so I choose to remember him with Joy:

    Joan, I can truly identify with your loss. We lost our oldest son over 23 years ago, but in many ways it is as fresh as the day it happened. But, like you, we have come to realize that even though the ache will still be there and we miss him terribly, we also remember with joy and love and are grateful for the many ways he touched our lives. Sending love and best wishes, Jeannie emoticon

    It is so heartbreaking to lose a child. I wish I had the power to make certain that every child lives to old age and outlives their parents. emoticon
