My thoughts and prayers to all those left behind
As a special education teacher for 21 years, and a mom to a lost son myself, I can imagine the grief of all the people Justin touched! He was a beautiful child, inside and out! I'm glad you can appreciate the time you had spent together, instead of the time lost. We can't recover that time, but we can pray for the peace to understand why God wanted him more, and look forward to the time you meet again.
I am truly, deeply sorry for your loss. Your site is very spiritual and emphasizes the wonderful moments you had together. I know you lament that you cannot have more time, but we don't get to choose when we go! I will say prayers for all of your family and friends of Justin.
I lost my only child, Dustin, to murder 4 years ago, a month before his 20th birthday. His site can be viewed at http://dustin-allen-meece.memory-of.com . I have continued in my life-long pursuit of teaching LD, mentally disabled, and emotionally disabled children. I know Dustin would not have wanted me to curl up and die, even though sometimes I just wish my heart would stop beating. I don't know how it continues with such a huge hole in it, but it does!
Many blessings to you all in such a heart-rending time. I pray for strength and understanding and acceptance for you!
