Rita you're right, nobody can take our pain away or make it better. But I do find some comfort what everybody writes and everybody understands my feelings. The last days I feel so empty and exhausted and think I have no tears leaved anymore, but then I se belongings from my son or a pic.....and my tears start running again. I hope we can put him at the cemetery latest next week to rest in peace. My son got cremated and the military has to bring the urn here and there is still some paperwork to be done (German bureaucracy ) and the investigation is still going on. And yes it should be me to be lay down at the cemetery, not my son. Hugs to you
Rita, I was so sad reading about your son's accident and death. Losing an adult child is no easier than losing a young child. No one really wants to belong to this group, but it is a source of consolation and understanding. I tried to send a friend request, but it wouldn't let me for some reason. Prayers for you to get some peace and comfort.
