Back Home

I actually relaxed well while I was gone. Returning home wasn't as bad as I thought.

I still feel the need to talk about W. We went to a Sunday School class today where everyone was talking about their kids. I can't stand to pretend that A is my only child and that W never existed. So when the Sunday School leader asked about our kids, I mentioned that we had had a 16 year old son and that he died recently. She gulped and went on. I'm not sorry if she felt uncomfortable. He will always be part of us.

B gave me a pretty ring with W and A's names and birthstones on it. A got a new wallet and asked me for a picture of W to put in it. We had dinner with W's girlfriend and her family. We still remember you.

I'm not sorry if she felt uncomfortable, either. Our society needs to rid itself of the topic of death as taboo. And, yes, Will will always be a part of you all.
