    CGN . . .

    I'm so, SO sorry. So VERY sorry. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours.

    AZ . . .

    How WONDERFUL!

    The both of you have me sitting here crying.

    For Michael's loss, AND for the beauty of my extended FoRT family.

    (And you ALL know who you are! I'd be here for HOURS getting each and every name down in this post!)

    And karma, rest assured that my prayers are with YOU, too!

    That was sweet AZ. I fell 2 months short of my 25th anniversary.

    I had a friend that went through that same experience. Having seen her go through that, I have been so grateful for every one of our milestones. At this point, we often talk about enjoying each day to the fullest, because we know how quickly things can change.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    We will all be thinking of you tomorrow, CantGetNuf, as your family has a memorial for little Michael. I hope it will be a memorial that brings some closure and peace to you all. The pain will be there but you will know you honored him and his sweet young life and cherished all the happy, anticipatory moments of getting ready to welcome him into the family. His soul is there with you all and he is feeling cherished though he was not able to stay. These things we can never understand, but we must accept it is part of a larger plan. We can't know this plan until we join those we love who have gone before us. But it is not an ending, just the beginning of something more wonderful and with a Love that is impossible to comprehend on this plane.

    Hugs, kisses and prayers to you all.

    Awww, I should learn not to come in this thread when I'm feeling emotional!!

    AZ, your letter was beautiful and made me shed a few tears as I was reading it.

    CGN, you and your family are in my thoughts today.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    Thank you again to everyone for the words and the warm thoughts. They were felt and appreciated. The memorial was real small and quick. My son's pastor led it and I was so happy for it. He has been my son's pastor for 20yrs. He always wanted to be mine too but I told him as much as I appreciate it, I don't need a go between. Some lovely soul donated flowers for the memorial. I will always be indebted to them for it. It really meant so much to me that strangers can feel for you and want to do something to take away your pain. It really does restore your faith in your fellow man.
    I was a little disappointed in the funeral home. But it's not really their fault. During the bad storms we had last week their roof was damaged. I could tell that there used to be a picture hanging from the wall but it wasn't there so basically the backdrop was just a big stark wall. During the ceremony I was very thankful for the flowers that were sent because it gave everyone something pretty to look at instead of the big empty wall.
    Thanks again everyone! You are all so beautiful!
