Sean Patrick Cotter
by Carol , Seans mom
Sean died on November 15,2011. He did not wake up for work and our nightmare started. It has been two months and the ache in my heart is as strong as ever. I struggle with the idea that some one I loved so much is just gone. I can never talk to him again. I have been spending a lot of time looking at pictures. His sisters created a in memory page on face book and his youngest sister created a blog. Everybody is just filled with sadness. Sean was a spirited young boy who grew into a more serious young adult. He was 24 when he died. Almost to the day he was with me half my life. I had just turned forty nine and had him when I was 24 and a half and he was 24 and a half when he left us. How do you try to have normal when some one who was a huge part of your world since 24. Some days I just daydream that he is still here and when it hits me that he is not the panic in my body is just unbelievable. I know that is grief. What a painful process grief is. I wish everyone out there that has lost a child hope and peace.
