I'm feeling a little emotionally empty right now. I never would have imagined that I would know so many children that would be gone from this Earth at such a young age. It just makes me wonder WHY? These children have struggled, they have fought such a difficult battle, still...they die? The parents are left to wonder time and time again what their child would be doing today...if only. Yes, you hear the typical..they are in a better place, they are not hurting anymore, they are with God. However, the parents are left here with a huge gaping hole in their hearts, and the big question....WHY? A parent is not supposed to bury their child. That is not the way it is supposed to be. It just makes me angry. It leaves me feeling helpless. What do you say to the parent that is grieving? I do not know what they are feeling. I have thought numerous times that I might become the person that would know what they are going through, fortunately my child is still here today. What do you say to the person that is living their worst nightmare? I'm so sorry just doesn't seem to cut it. Oh how I wish that I could turn the clock back for these parents and make the outcome for their sweet children different.
Godspeed Little Jackson and Dillon. May peace comfort both of your parents as they try to endure the pain of their loss.
