That was a sad story. I don't have anything to say other than I hope you continue to have good memories of him.

Corinne, my oldest daughter was killed when she was 25 years old, leaving behind a frightened little 3 yr old boy. I had her when I was very young, and we grew up together.

Only those of us who have lost a child truly know the grief.
Here's a hug from someone who knows.

Corrinne, I read Shane's memorial. Thank you for sharing this beautiful memory of your beloved son with us. I wish I could put into words what I'm feeling, but I truly hope that someday, you'll see Shane again, and he'll be waiting, with open arms, to hug his amazing mom.

Corrine and Constance my heart goes out to you. My grandfather once said to me that there was nothing on earth worse than losing your own child (his oldest died at 6)
I read Shane's memorial and it made me cry. How lucky he was to have such a loving family and friends.
Hugs to both of you.

Shane

Thank you for your kind words & thoughts, everyone. Whenever I read Shane's memorial it makes me weep, too - even after 16 months. My husband did such a good job with it & it just tears at my heart. Everyone with children knows how much they are a part of your identity. I feel kinda lost & as if I am drifting now. I wish Shane would have had a child of his own (legitimate or not!) so a piece of him could go on. They say when you lose your parents, you lose a piece of your past. When you lose a child, you lose your future.
The whole point of this was that cooking is my therapy now & it's my "time with Shane" these days. I revel in it.
Corinne
