just read and listened to your message...

i, too, lost the two sons who loved me in word and deed..

first one to motorcycle accident..

and most recent one to suicide...

my whole life is identified in my loss....

yet i try to carry on as best a childless mother can...

i'm glad you got to go to the compasionate freinds conference...

i yearn for ones to interact with who understand that one never "gets over" has cloure or "moves on" one must just figure out how to live the resp of this life with out their dear loved ones..
