Tolerance, good temper and sympathy — they are what matter really, and if the human race is not to collapse they must come to the front before long.
- E. M. Forster
Five years ago today I lost a son to suicide.
There is still not a day that goes by without thoughts of him.
Just the thought hurts my heart for you. God bless you.
Our hearts still ache for your loss. May the Lord provide such comfort as you need.
I'm sorry. Nobody should go through that. Pachydermis
I suck at finding the right words fo stuff like this.I am truly sorry. I cannot begin to understand your pain.
Words fail.You have my deepest condolences.
Condolences Borepatch. I cannot imagine.
The theoretical physicists say there’s 10 (or 11, depending on which egghead you talk to) - dimensions. We only perceive 3 or 4. We know this because elsewise, our universe would be unstable and couldn’t exist. Long story short: over an nth dimensional hill, and round a temporal corner... your boy is still alive and well. It may seem to us that he is irretrievably lost; but figuratively speaking he is still nearby, along with other loved ones. Amidst all the staggering infinities on planes we can’t perceive, our loved ones are just “across the street”.I dunno if it helps, ASM...but sometimes it helps me to think that way of others that have gone over the Great Divide. Keep him close and be well.
I'm so sorry to hear that, Bp. My daughter in law lost her 17 year old son to suicide a couple years ago. It changes a person.
I need to point out to our readers that this post was by my co-blogger and Brother-from-another-mother ASM826. It was his son. Quite frankly, I don't know how I would have dealt with it if it had been one of mine. All I know is that I would not have handled it with the strength and grace he did.Yeah, Miguel - those of us who have never been through this can't know how we would handle it.
So sorry for your loss. Depression is a horrible, insidious condition and you have to win every single battle. Anyone struggling with it, please, get help. It's out there. :(
I can't even... I'll just sit here with you for a while...
I'm terribly sorry for your loss.
I still pray daily for Michael, & for all young people who have taken their own lives. The Lord grants strength. God Bless.
Forgive this late response, but know you have my condolence and prayers, not least on behalf of your son.
