A Memory

On the morning of Jonathan's memorial service I woke up with so much pain and dread ,all I really wanted to do was to go back to bed and cover my head. Still so numb from the shock I just didn't think I could face what was ahead of me.
MY son was staying at my mother's, right up the road and I sent him a text and it said,
"How will I ever make it through this day?"
His text reply came back quickly and it was one simple word. "Together".

What a wonderful son you have. He is truly a dear. This brought a tear to my eye. I think it is so good for you to share these thoughts and moments with us.

Chellie and Shirley,
Without him standing beside me during all of this I just don't think I could have made it. I wish you could have heard the Ulogy he did. We wanted people to know who Jonathan really was and he did it perfectly, not reading it,telling it from his heart.

Thank you for bringing two beatiful boys into this world, and sharing one of them with me. :-)

Amy, did you see how I spelled Eulogy up there? HA! I knew I couldn't spell but my goodness!
Anyway, I love you, and take care of that son of mine. I hope he can find a way while he is off this weekend to release some of his pain, see that he does that please. I love you. Did you know that? I do. And go right now and give Miss Curly Top a big old hug from me. I miss her terribly.

I love him too, Vicki, more than anything in the world. I miss you, but I'll see you next Monday. I promise.
