Will's Birthday

Last night we went out to dinner to celebrate Will's birthday. He would have been 20 and in college. We had a great family discussion--not about Will, but about what is going on in Andrew's life. I have also been able to remember him, cry a little, and then still look forward. I still sometimes feel the horrible aching in my heart, but Will is taken care of. I have to take care of those of us who are here.

We are all glad he was born and grateful we knew him.

What a beautiful area devoted to your son you have set up on that table. This mourning work you are doing is very hard work. I imagine it lasts a lifetime. It seems to me you are doing a good job with it overall. I don't know how I would do, were I in your shoes. May you and your family be comforted, day by day.

It's really nice. A sensitively done portrait.
