Hi Russell, I was just reading posts, I am so sorry I didn't get a chance to write on the 2nd. I pray that you can find even just a little peace, I look at your Chellys picture and think "how precious".
I also wanted to point something out, my son was born on Nov. 2nd, he passed on June 22, my daughters name is Rachellle and I have always called her Shelly Bean... Just thought that I would tell you, what a coincidence. Much love to your baby girl.
I was reading posts and happen to look over and saw the photo of your beautiful daughter Chelsea. When I clicked on her photo I also noticed that you live in Garden Grove California. Immediately, I thought of Dr. Robert Schuller of the famed Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove. My son Joe who was struck by a drunk driver went beyond the Crystal Cathedral on April 5, 2010. We had gone to a book signing in Quaker Bridge Mall in New Jersey. It was a long time ago but I'm so glad my son and I shared that wonderful experience together. I have a photo of Dr. Robert Schuller shaking hands with my son Joe. But the photo taken of me and the writer of the book signed to Joe is lost;I gave it to a friend in a book and she never saw it.
There are fathers who have lost sons and you might want to come over post and get to know some of us who understand. There's no fireplace but it's the warmest place to visit of anywhere I know.
