Tammy--I'm so sorry for your loss as well--losing your nephew when he was 5--how terribly tragic!

Never finding Chad's body makes it so difficult---no closure. My sister also lost her daughter, Kelly Marie Louise when she was a baby---medical complications in hospital! It breaks my heart! Then my sister was hit by a hit-and-run driver who went up on the curb where she was walking and she lost the twins she was carrying. Oh, I can't write about this anymore. I'm starting to cry again.

Thank you for responding!

Earth Angel,

To live is to feel but, we sometimes wonder why it must be so painful. So let this pain serve three things: l. that you are reminded of the fragility of life 2. that you honor his spirit having crossed your path in this short life 3. and finally, to find comfort by committing to make the most of your life in memory of his.

Bless you

Here's hoping he's on God's allstar team pitching like a pro. Much sorrow in your loss here, the not knowing is always the worst. God Bless you and your family.
