A life has ended.

They bury him today. 

Someone who should have had a whole life ahead of him.  Someone who decided that it wasn't what they wanted.

There are no words that can take away or ease someone's pain and grief.  There is nothing that can be said to make it better.  Just the heart wrenching pain that you feel from the void that someone's passing has left, the sense of grief.  The sense of loss.  But also the questions that will never be, can never be answered.

I hope, that he is at peace.

I hope that he finds the peace in his mind in death that he could not find in life.

A parent should never have to bury their child, it should just never be that way.  The pain and grief in her eyes betrayed the outer sense of calm that she portrayed as she told me.  One can never truly know what is going through another person's mind, to take them to that place where there is just no other answer.

May he rest.  In peace.

  2. Were deeply sadden by your loss, and our hearts and prayers are with you and your family as well with anyone your child has affected by their smile and time he spent with them.

  3. Thank you for your responses.

    Cuckold H - the person who has passed isn't my son, but that of a good friend and as a parent, my heart breaks for her, for the family.

    Regards, Kat
