Thank you Carl and all others that have sent their condolences. I'm still at the stage where I can't go 5 minutes without it drop kicking me in the gut. My wife and family seem to be adjusting a little better than myself, but they also fall apart frequently. The enormous hole that is left in our hearts and lives will never be filled. But hopefully someday we will be able to cope with it better. One positive outcome was that we were able to donate his organs, and we are glad to say that he saved many people with his gifts. Hopefully so that those other parents will never have to go through this sorrow.

You have a whole new burden upon you, one that you will carry for all of your days. I am one of five children, November 17, 1963, exactly seven days before my fifth birthday, my mother and father's world as well as three of my siblings and myself was turned upside down and inside out and it lasts to this day. Our eldest sibling, our parents first born, a girl 14 years old died suddenly from a brain aneurism. You Rodney, as my father did, must keep the family together now. My father had his moments I am sure but he protected all of his children and carried this pain to his grave. But through his strength we found a touchstone. Losing a child is just not natural, we as parents are supposed to pass on first. Time and time alone seems to be one of the factors that helps us along the way, but even more so it is family, family will help you all along the way...
