Anguish , Anger and Unbearable Pain

Fill my being – I had to say goodbye to part of my very reason for being . What the Cancer hadn’t managed to do the H1N1 managed.

I have said my goodbye to my son , I will not be going through public rituals of mourning ….that is not my way. I loved my son more than life itself. I will miss his smile that would light up the room, his irreverant humour, his strength , his deep husky voice his broad shoulders and his love.

The journey of the last 22 months has been one of cruelty .

    I wish there was someway I could ease your pain – or make it go away altogether. I can only imagine how deeply it goes. You and your family have been, and will continue to be, much in my thoughts.
    If there is something I can do, let me know.
    I love you!

    I am so very sorry, Loraine. The rollercoaster of emotions and news that you endured for the last 22 months was cruel. As always, I’m here if you need anything. Please don’t hesitate to call.

    I cannot imagine the grief you and your family are going through at this point in time. I’ve walked a similar path not so long ago and wish I could be there to just hug you and help in any way I could. Know that I will continue to pray for all of you and hope that God will hold you all close.
