Too Young…Too Soon

EPSON scanner imageFive years after my son’s death, I am doing okay. There are times when I start to cry without even thinking about Jon. Sometimes, I see or hear something that may bring a few tears and a memory; other times I cry without any prompt.

It’s not something I worry about. I think grief has become part of me, as my son is part of me. Both are with me, as one goes with the other. I celebrate Jon’s life and I am proud he is my son. I say “is my son” because he didn’t stop being my son when he died. He is my son who died, too young, too soon.

  1. God knows the deepest hurt and loss of a beloved child. The Lord is near. Hugs in Jesus…

  2. Sending a hug and prayer from my heart to yours as the Father comforts you and counts every tear you shed….

  3. This caught my eye in my inbox and I just wanted to say I wish I could give you a hug. May 31 will be 5 years since my son Jake (16) died. I always still say “is my son” also. They will always be our boys, they’re just in a different place now. Waiting for us! Big hugs to you.
