2,285 days since you've been gone

I am so fascinated by the moon, the stars, the clouds and the sky
 that I find myself constantly looking up. The heavens take on a whole new meaning 
when your kids are there; in heaven. 

I  know I don't write about the kids 
all that much on this blog. But don't let that 
fool ya, parents never stop grieving 
the loss of their children 
EVER!



















And although our family has moved forward with 
living our lives the best we know how,
we take moments to 
remember.....


Today we remember Eric's 28th
 birthday but there will be no celebrating. 

He and his sister Gretchen 
 died in an accident 
  July 3, 2006.

  7. I think about your children sometimes, ever since I found out about the accident in a long ago post. And pray for you and them. and wonder how you deal with that grief. faith must be the only answer. there is nothing I could say, except i will pray for all of you.

    1. Annmarie, I spent most of my childhood in church with my Nana at the the altar rail kneeling in front of the rows of candles praying for those who had gone before us.

      Your prayers for my children as do all the other prayers offered by all the others here on this blog mean the world to me. Thanks.

  12. I'm thinking of you today too...along with your other blogger friends. I've said before, I cannot imagine such a loss, but I too send love and sympathy. I'm sending prayers as well. My brother died when he was 23, and my in-laws have buried three children, so losing the young has hit our family as well. God bless you and your husband.
