I'll always remember this one
With the greatest regret
Because out of the blue today
I found out that my only Son
Had passed away ....

And we had never even met

As my past returned
With the present to collide
I was then to learn
I had a grandchild

And now I have this quandary
Of what I should do
So I think it is up to you Charlie
But please know I am here for you....

Though the flesh and body
Of life are yours alone
You are part of the tree
Made up of your Dad and Me...

So You shall always dwell in the depths of my soul

loved this

Though the flesh and body
Of life are yours alone
You are part of the tree
Made up of your Dad and Me...

So You shall always dwell in the depths of my soul

I'm sorry for your loss....sending hugs

I can't imagine the level of pain you must feel. It is in every word you wrote. My heart goes out to you.

Such shock and sorrow and the extended love of family. What a beautiful, yet sad piece. ~L

You have my deepest sympathy. A loss is a loss - whether it is loss of what was or loss of what could have been.
