Thank you Missy. My son was 28 and he took his own life and none of us saw it coming. He was always a happy easy going kid. But he fought alcoholism for years and had been to rehab but had relasped. He was trying so hard to get his life together. He had just made a rededication of his life to Christ 5 days before he died. I totally understand what you mean about your brother aging 10 years in 3 days, I did too. It's the worst pain I have ever felt. But I have to keep going. My grand angels are what keep me going and give me a reason to get out of bed every day. I keep one of them every day while my daughter works. I have seen people lose kids and they become a recluse and become very bitter, angry people. I will not allow the devil to win this battle and do that to me. I honestly feel God calling me to use this tragedy in a positive way some how. Maybe it's to help other families when they face this kind of tragedy also. I don't know yet, and as you said, it is still too soon and feelings are still too raw right now. But sometime down the road I hope to be able to help others. Thank you again for your kind words and your prayers. Prayers from other people is what helps me/us keep going and putting one foot in front of the other some days. 2001 days ago
Bless your heart. *gentlehugs* Losing a child is probably the worst thing humans can endure. My oldest niece died at 27. My brother aged ten y ears in three days. It changed all of us forever, of course. Your grief is so new and raw. I pray for the peace of God to comfort you as only He can. I am so pleased that you are on this journey with me.
