Teddy, tehre's nothing I can say. Just wanted you to know I read this and it touched my in a very very deep place.
I have not lost a child but it's the horror that sits on the shoulder of ever parent, and there were times I knew I was on the very edge of it.
I aso remember distinctly the day when my cousin died after playing with a home made bomb; I saw him, covered in blood, just before my father drove him to hospital. I was too young to know what dewath meant but that I knew the meaning of it from the reactions of al the adults in our family.
God bless you.

Kristin & Paula...in this subject I will remain a bit silent. This is the kind of pain which words only will cloud at times....

I don't know if it belongs here either, Teddy, but I sure am glad you wrote it. I haven't lost a child myself, but I watched my parents slowly self-destruct after my younger brother was killed in an accident while horsing around with friends. As miserable as I was (and, let's face it, still am after almost 4 years) when it happened, I can't even begin to imagine what it must have been like for my mom and dad. It doesn't get better. It's not okay. It's never going to be okay. It's just going to be different. Forever.

Ted,
You are truly an amazing, insightful,compasionate man. As painful as it is to share personal experience of loss, you handle it with such gentleness and heart. Anger, bitterness and insanity only touch the surface of the feelings when a child is lost. People often say with time the pain lessens. As you know the words are often spoken by one whom has never had to live through this heart crushing time. As I sit here writing through tears I am in awe of you. You see I too avoid the painful stories such as Samuel Greenberg because I too am an unfortunate member.

Thank you again for your heart and may you find comfort in knowing your words comfort others.
