I just wanted to say I can't imagine losing a child. I am so glad your sons memorial service went well. I hope you have healing days ahead. Sending you a big hug.

Thank you, Charlotte. This was the hardest part, making decisions as to what to do. It is done now and I feel he is at peace.

I wanted to add that it we important to me to pay for all the food and prepare most of it. I did it before my family could interject with offers of help as it was important to me to provide that last Mom gift.

Last night I had a beautiful dream and he was there and we were Mom and Son. I feel he is at peace. I'm not there yet. I still have leaky eyes, but I feel better.

Oh darn. Today I was taking apart the poster board my sister and I put together and I broke down again. I only managed to get a few in frames and then had to turn the boards to the wall. I want to get all his pictures into either frames or in photo albums. I guess it's going to take time.

I wanted to update the pictures situation.

I never realized before putting the pictures on the board, my son was smiling in every picture. It made me feel good because it shows he was a happy child. I am so glad to see that in the pictures.

Thank you. Once I get them all in albums or frames I can then look at them any time I want to. I did not realize just how many pictures my family and I took of him. He was such a beautiful person, from day 1.
