Since you are at this page, I have to assume that you have lost someone. Since this entire site is about the life and death of my son, I am going to assume further that you have lost a child. A child that you love with every ounce of your being and a child that you don't think you can survive without. I am here to tell you that you can.

It will be the most difficult, the most painful, and the most lonely journey you ever take. It will take you through nights so black you will think you've gone mad. It will burn your soul with it's strength and will turn you inside out a hundred times. It will slam you to your knees when you least expect it, and will fill your heart with a heaviness that is unbearable. But you can endure.

You can expect to feel any emotion in existence over and over again.

You might feel ok one minute and suicidal the next.

You might try to avoid thinking about your child as dead, and might play "let's pretend" in your head for hours on end.

You might see your child walking down a street, sitting at a stop light, or playing on a swingset. You might even follow them for a while before you realize that it isn't them. No mistake has been made. This isn't a nightmare. This is real.
