im sorry for your loss. my son was 13 when he was in a fatal car accident, would have been 14 january 18 he passed sept 5, 2009. he too was my best friend. i cant promise you much Jim but i can promise you are not alone and i am 1000% sure that our children are having the time of their lives, we are the ones suffering, they dont feel sadness or pain, only love. they will wait for us because time to them is like a blink of an eye, there is no concept of time in heaven only for us, so when they see us crying they think why is my mom/dad crying im going to see them soon and just wait till i can show them this beautiful place we get to live in forever together. we are all here because we hurt, you can say whatever you want here and noone holds it against you, My prayers are with you.
Jim, I am so sorry for your loss. I understand how fresh the pain is for you. I lost my 32 year old son on 2/14/10. This has been the hardest four weeks of my life. There are moments I feel like I just can't do this, but I have a great support group and I hope you have the same. The people in this group are fantastic and so supportive. Keep coming here and posting your feelings. Hugs to you and your family.
