Jay, There are no words that can express how I feel for you at this time. I know your heart is breaking and it all seems so unfair, but just imagine never knowing such a precious angel, imagine never having had him at all. Such a beautiful blessing that he was to you the wonderful spirit that you were blessed with even for such a short time. They say time heals but the scar remains. Please just remember every morning that you wake up you have a chance to honor him, a chance to be a better YOU for him! I'm always here if you need to talk. I'm just a phone call away. Blessings to you and I hope that you find some peace. He such a precious gift and now your precious angel watching over you encouraging you everyday to be the man that you were meant to be. With much love and respect I send this tribute. Just for Today – For Bereaved Parents Just for today I will try to live through the next 24 hours and not expect to get over my child’s death, but instead learn to live with it, just one day at a time. Just for today I will remember my child’s life, not just his death, and bask in the comfort of all those treasured days and moments we shared. Just for today I will forgive all the family and friends who didn’t help or comfort me the way I needed them to. They truly did not know how. Just for today I will smile no matter how much I hurt on the inside, for maybe if I smile a little, my heart will soften and I will begin to heal. Just for today I will reach out to comfort a relative or friend of my child, for they are hurting too, and perhaps we can help each other. Just for today I will free myself from my self-inflicted burden of guilt, for deep in my heart I know if there was anything in this world I could of done to save my child from death, I would of done it. Just for today I will honor my child’s memory by doing something with another child because I know that would make my own child proud. Just for today I will offer my hand in friendship to another bereaved parent for I do know how they feel. Just for today when my heart feels like breaking, I will stop and remember that grief is the price we pay for loving and the only reason I hurt is because I had the privilege of loving so much Just for today I will not compare myself with others. I am fortunate to be who I am and have had my child for as long as I did. Just for today I will allow myself to be happy, for I know that I am not deserting her by living on. Just for today I will accept that I did not die when my child did, my life did go on, and I am the only one who can make that life worthwhile once more. Vicki Tushingham
