I’m thinking about my cousin who died suddenly at age 34 and left behind her husband and child.
I remember giving her son a children’s book about death of a loved one. How can you ever make such a huge loss any better though?
I’m thinking about my relatives today because of an obituary I saw in the paper.
It shows a beautiful mother, 22, and her young son, Micah. There is a quote from Micah in the obituary. “You’re my best friend Momma.”
It’s truly heartbreaking to know this little guy has lost his mother. There is no mention of a father so not sure if he is in his life.
My grandmother lost her mom when she was nine.
I am lucky enough to still have my mother around.
I can’t imagine how I would have coped had I lost her in childhood.
Special thoughts go out to Micah today.
