Hi Valerie, I just saw your comment on my and Justin's wall. Thank you for that. You lost Dusty close to the time I lost Justin. My Justin died July 12, 2009. I agree that the missing only gets worse. The expression "time heals all wounds" should be "time heals most wounds". Time certainly has not been a friend to me. It will soon, in a couple days,be going on 3 years and 7 months. It seems like yesterday and yet it feels like a long time since I touched him. I was going through a stack of papers today that have only been accumulating for a year and somehow a receipt Justin had signed for his senior pictures back in 1998 showed up in those papers. It is like getting a bonus anytime sometthing like that happens. I try to keep him with me by thinking about him (which I do off and on all day long) and by talking about him as though he is still here. Of course I can only refer to the past and not the present but it still helps. I somehow feel that talking about him keeps him with me at least a little. I think my family, his brothers especially, get uncomfortable at times but I refuse to not talk about him. They miss him just like I do but they have lives and want to move on. I really do not want to move on away from Justin. My best to you Valerie and to Dusty.
Hi Valerie I just read your comment on the main wall. I too lost my only child/son Joe. He was on his motorcycle when he was fatally injured by a drunk driver. It will be 3 years April 5th 2013. Joe was 42 12 years old and his friends are all celebrating their 46th birthdays this year as Joe would have done in August. I celebrate his birthday in my heart.
I can identify with you in that we can not birth another child.
I go through the motions and continue doing most things I did before the tragedy.
I'm going to get ready for a meeting for my garden club. We are taking part in the NJ flower and garden show. We will be decorating a Subaru Car as tailgating for the Mardi Gras parade. I have some items and each person may contribute to it I'm looking forward to my friend picking me up in about an hour from now.
I need to keep busy because my mother passed away Nov. 19, 2012. Now I have no one in my immediate blood line as my brother and father also had passed more than 15 years ago.
