I Feel Your Pain Billy Bob Thornton

Thank you for finding this, Dee. Yes, we will be sad for our entire lives.


Rarely do those among us honor loss after the first year. Surely after 25 years, you would not expect someone to admit they are still mourning their brother. Mr. Thornton admits:

“I don’t want to forget what it felt like when he died, because he deserves [that remembrance]. That’s how important he was to me,” Thornton says. “So, if I have to suffer and I have to be sad for the rest of my life, and if I have to be lonely without him… then that’s the way I honor him.”

It’s an anguish that he doesn’t believe will ever go away. “I’ll be sad and melancholy about that forever. I know it and I accept it and I live with it,” he says. “But I think it’s OK. I think it’s OK to have all those feelings.”

Amen, brother. Finally, someone writes my heart. I want Billy Bob Thornton…

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.
