What do you say to someone who just lost their child…their baby?
There are no words that will take away our pain...the indescribable heart break...the emptiness that will always be the missing child in our family.
How we wish that your words could magically take away our pain, but that won't happen. Our pain will always be there. In time we hope that we will learn to live with it better. Our life will never be the same, but we have hope, there's always hope!
What we want you to know is that we very much want to share our grief with you!
We want very much to talk to you about Lucy, and listen to you talk about her too. Her name, her physical being, her scent, her voice, her touch, her physical presence here in our family on this earth…we miss it all, we miss her so so much! Please help us to keep her memory alive, talk to us about her.
One of our kids biggest fears is that no one will talk to them about Lucy ever again. If I'm being honest here, it's one of our fears too. We want to talk about her, we need to talk about her, we want and need to hear her name... she is and will always be a part of our family.
The physical desire to want to be with her is overwhelming.
The pain of missing her is indescribable.
We never could have lived the life we did when Lucy was alive without the love, support, thoughts, and prayers of so many…this is especially true now that she has gone to Heaven!
Tomorrow, Valentines Day (I can't think of a more appropriate holiday for our very loved little girl), our family is going to have an opportunity to say our final good-bye to Lucy's physical body. It will be a private service for just us, an intimate opportunity for us to physically lay eyes on her beautiful body one last time here on this earth. Thankfully, we know we'll be reunited again...
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers, we will need them.
