Don't mean to be a downer...

One year ago today my little brother was hit and killed by a car. It has been a very hard year for all of my family, we are just not the same dynamic. I've never known such heartache, I can't imagine ever losing a child and the pain my mother must be feeling. I pray for all those who have suffered the loss of a child. As for my mother, she is not doing to well. We are going to her house in about a half hour. All I can do is be by her side today, hold her hand and pray for strength and unrelenting faith.
My brother was such a great kid. He was so smart and touched many people with his words. He had depth way beyond his years. I miss him dearly. I can't wait for the day I see him again.

I leave you with a poem he wrote....

I sat one night upon a tree,
Just to see what I could see.
And what I saw was oh so great,
visions of stars and a moon so bright!
I saw in the moon a silver beauty,
shimmering hair and eyes straight white.
The Silver Moon Goddess, yes truly...
She gazed down upon me
and thus I fell from the tree.
A shimmering shroud of bright white light,
broke my fall then vanished from sight.
I gazed up at the moon again
and she was gone, as if she'd never been.

It has been 26 years since we lost my sister and it still hurts... we talk about her a lot and still tell stories that she is in. I think it is our way of keeping her alive and with us. I'm praying for you and your family! ((hugs))

Deanna, I am so sorry for your loss. I am praying for you and your family. All you can do for your mom is be there. I agree, I can't imagine ever loosing a child . . .

I wish I lived by you so I could give you a hug. Hope you made it though the day o.k. . . I wish there were something I could do or say that would take a little bit of the pain away from you and your family . . .

And, I LOVED the poem.
