Moving Forward

Leo,
Today is your memorial service. After today, the rest of the world will move on…

Will I?

How?

Sitting in church this morning, I’m struck by the realization that, even though it doesn’t feel like it, your dad and I have come a long way in the last 10 days. I cannot believe that we made it this far. I have hope that, someday, I will look back and say “I can’t believe it’s been 3 months, 1 year, 5 years…” You get the picture.

I love you son. And even though the world keeps moving without you, you will always be in my heart. Our souls are forever connected.

All my love,
Mom

One thought on “Moving Forward

  1. I’m so sorry for the lost of your precious baby Leo. I know the feeling of loosing a son. I lost my dear son Gabriel to Osteosarcoma, bone cancer. I understand the feeling of your pain, emptiness,anger,hopelessness and the feeling of knowing that God is in control even when it hurts so much and we don’t quite understand why. I know the feeling of having oh, so many questions and no answers. I know that one day it will all make sense, but till then, we are left with this void and pain in our hearts. My son Gabriel left March 17, 2012 I recall the first week, the first month, the first year without him… Never thinking I could go that long without him and now… Here I am…. Almost 2 yrs later. I have lost so much and yet, learned so much more. I continue to Trust in Jesus and know that he knows and has a better planed for us then we could ever imagine. After all, He is our creator. And in Him, ALL things are perfect. Why He chose us, I don’t know. But that Leo and Gabriel were so Special I have no doubt… May you continue to find strength and comfort in our Lord Jesus. I have been trying to focus on my today’s and always remembering my yesterday’s …. For I am who I am today because I’ve survived all of my yesterday’s..
