Grief & Gratitude: Happy 26th Birthday

A post from another grieving parent who is a little farther down the road. Thoughts on celebrating their departed son’s birthday. I have to agree with her. It is important to acknowledge the day our beloved children come into this world. Last year we weren’t sure what to do and ended up having a quiet gathering at our home with a few of Jake’s closest and best friends. It was lovely.We will continue to honor and celebrate, yes celebrate Jake’s birthday. He brought so much light and love into this world, how do we not celebrate that? His legacy continues through the people who knew and love him, who keep his memory alive, who say his name, who remember him. Thank you Robin for these lovely words.

The Infinite Fountain of Love and Loss flows unceasingly into the pool of memory and sorrow. I created this blog in response to the most dreadful tragedy every parent fears, the death of a child, our 24 year old son, Jake. We are now on an unimagined journey along this road of grief and recovery. If you can find some comfort within these pages, than I will have succeeded in some small measure.
