Three months ago today that you left us my sweet Sam. You’re on my mind almost every minute of every day. I hope I’m doing you proud as I honor you in my grief. I hope that as I share your story here in Trenton this week, that it is making a difference: I want this to be your legacy. I wish more than I wish for my next breath, that you were still here. But you’re not, so I’m trying to let your death make a difference so that others may live.
A friend of mine passed away yesterday. I hope you are helping him and showing him around on the other side. I wish I could do more to help his family here on this side : all I can offer now is heartfelt words when I know that there are no words that will lessen the pain and grief they are feeling.
I miss you Sam. And I know that time passes in the blink of an eye where you are, but it sure drags out here when we are missing the ones we love. I hope that it isn’t too long until I see you again my sweet sweet son. I love you.
