Son, Brother & Father

I hope you will indulge me the opportunity to share my grief in print. Today it has been 5 years since I lost my beloved Shay.  For my friends that have lost a child, I know you understand, and for my other are my friends...and friends understand, even when they really don't. I have an overwhelming fear he will be forgotten if not talked about. The hole in my heart is still deep and I'm not sure it will ever heal completely.
You think each year will get better but I'm still waiting for the sadness to end.  Thank God for Ty. He is a blessing. He keeps the other half of my heart strong and happy.  Thank you Lou!..... for just about everything ...and to my friends, thank you for letting me keep Shay's memory tear at a time.................


  1. I think about Shay every time I see Kyle. As for what you're going through, I found this excellent article written by a mother who lost a son 7 years ago:

    With love and understanding,

  2. I can not even imagine what it would be like to lose a child. I'm sorry it happened.

  3. Rest assured he will never be forgotten. I think of him daily and will always remember his kind heart from just alittle boy. He is very special to me and my for love him will go on forever.
