I received a message from James saying he can't light candles due to the fact he's in Afghanastan. How long is he gone for? I appreciated that he took the time to write a short note! Bless him! My prayers are with him and your family!
It must be long and hard for you not to have James by your side but than he's always with you in your heart! Thank goodness for internet...I'm sure you can keep in touch with him daily!
I have never forgotten your family since the day we met on this site. Your family was so devasted over the loss of Maurice! I would read the words that James would write and cry because he was going through the same thing I had been going through the year before. It was like reading my own thoughts and feelings.
I'm sure you must feel the same as me that it was the worse nightare to go through. Each moment hurt so bad...trying to hold on to our sanity...yet we couldn't deal or understand not having our child with us! As much as I hate to say it time does help. I miss my precious daughter every second that I breath but I can cope much better with my feelings and her being gone.
The Angel Families were and have been a big part of my recovery because they made me feel that I wasn't alone the only one going through this tragedy! So many young people that die!!! I never realize before Angie's death how many families lose their children nor did I understand the battle they had to go through. I feel so bad because two cousins of mine loss their children one at birth and the other at 3! I felt for them but nothing like I should have. I didn't understand the pain! Today I no differently and I try to help anyone going through the loss of a love one!
If you have the time and you need someone to share your thoughts I'm here! Forever will I keep Maurice in my thoughts and prayers because even though I never met him on earth I feel he is part of my life now as I got to know so much about him from his site. You were blessed with a happy vibrant and intelligent son!
I say often if only Angie wasn't in that car as I'm sure you say if only Maurice wasn't on the skateboard...but we have to look pass that and be greatful that they were fortunate to have a life of fun and enjoyment. Some children are born to be bed ridden all their life and never learn the happiness they get from enjoying all that life has to offer them.
God works in mysterious ways and perhaps the day we're reunited with our children we may also become known to each other through his guidance and his power!
Enjoy your summer with your other children as they are very blessed to have a Mommy and Daddy like yourself and James. Mei God keep you all safe and my Maurice wrap his Angel Wings around you and hold you close forever!
Luv and hugs
Donna Mom to Angie Robert xo
