A Prodigal's Return

This is the second time I abandoned my journal, only to pick up the threads again. My last entry was in September on the occasion of W.'s birthday. I am drawn back here this summer because of a horrible occurrence. W. died last Tuesday. He died of heart failure during a gym class due to a heart related birth defect. Somehow, I feel like writing again. I just need to talk about him over and over without anyone getting bored, tired or impatient. So if you still have me on your list, be warned.

Omigosh! I'm so sorry...

And I did wonder where you went.

Writing is one of the best therapies...be consumed by it and let it flow out on the keyboard...

I'm so sorry, I can't imagine what that must be like. Please write about W to your heart's content - I would love to read about him.

I appreciate your "listening."

Hi. I am a friend of +Seraphim and saw your posts today on his journal, so I meandered over to yours. I'm in Austin now, but lived near Ft Worth for 13 years. I am so sorry to hear about your son. I have not read any of your entries yet because I am at work. . But I wanted to extend my condolences and to tell you that you and all of yours will be in my prayers. I wanted to tell you also that when I was 16, that on JUne 23rd, my best friend, also 16, died of a congenital heart failure--after a long day playing tennis. I will stop for now. I know nothing I say can ease your pain--I can just offer a sympathetic ear. I've gone through recent grief myself, and I only know one thing in life: that the LOrd is good.

Thank you so much for your kind message. This has been rough on my son's friends, I know. In fact, we just had dinner with his girlfriend's family. Also, one of his friends was with him when he collapsed in his gym class. I would love to hear any advice I can pass on to them or to my other son, who is 12.
