It's very late at night. The sky is ablaze with fireworks. The sounds and smells envelop me. I miss you Russ! You died at 38 but I still feel the arms of an 8-year-old boy joyfully hugging me at each roaring round of colorful thunder.

their love remains with us always

I am so sorry for the loss of your son Russell. Us mothers will forever miss and hold our sons and daughters in our hearts for eternity. I at times imagine my son in my arms holding him .... remembering all the loving wonderful memories we shared with a bond that can never be broken. My son was 23 , it has been a year and the pain is still raw. I am thinking of you and sending you much love....Kay.
