Life…and Death…Rest in Peace My Son

Life…and Death…Rest in Peace My Son

I was going to just go away for a while without saying anything, but then I remembered this is a blog about life and how can I just bail out when my life is visited by death? On Friday, August 17th my son Alex died in an accident. He was twenty-three.

I am going to go away for a while. I need time to find a way to come to peace with this. I was lost and then found but now I am lost again.

I hope I’ll be back, but from here I can’t see that for sure. A bright light has gone out in my life and the best I can do is to feel sorry for myself and for our family and friends who grieve with me.
