My nephews
and my little niece
- saying a final good bye
to their brother

Trying to make sense
of something
Which makes no sense
at all

What a very beautiful dramatic photo...the photo tells it all....My God as we cry out I sure know how this touches all of us . Makes us snap out of the stupid things in life and so this accident will not be in vain.We have had our share of what your going through. I watched a movie that made me cry because it brought all this up. Geo will call you this weekend will you be home?

EBEZP said...

Let every picture paint a thousand words!
Sorry for your loss, picture excellent.

Autumn Storm said...

No sense at all. So sorry you have all suffered this heartache. Hugs.

Dave & Julee said...

They are beatiful. I wish you could be here with us, we miss you terribly. Of all of us, you are most like mom and we all need mom at times like these. We love you


Doug said...

This kind of loss is so senseless, but the family that gathered around it means a lot.

Crazy Me said...

You're breaking my heart.

actonbell said...

That is quite a picture, very heartrending.

javajazz said...

oh i remember those sweetie little redheads...
god, they're so beautiful...
was Josh a redhead too?
indeed, this will change the course
of all your lives...
it may appear to make no sense now,
but in time, your thoughts, feelings,
questions and reflections
will take you all to a new place
of a different sort of learning....
and right now
you all need a little bit of time
to be extra gentle with yourselves...

sweet kids....

Outdoorsy Girl said...

This pic. breaks my heart. I am SO sorry to hear of this terrible news. :(

These children are beautiful, by the way.

Diesel said...

I'm so sorry. I'm praying for the family.

Mo'a said...

This picture has brought tears to my eyes and an ache in my heart for all of you.

neva said...

beautiful and touching picture. my heart goes out to you all. not sure this will ever makes sense... such a loss rarely does.

keeping your wonderful family in my thoughts and prayers, gentle Terry, in hopes your lives will soon be filled with peace and happiness. xox

Sherri said...

OMG! They are so cute, look at that bright red hair! (I'm sorry, I just had to throw that in there....)

My condolences to you and your family Terry, through your time of nee.

Minka said...

I am so sorry to hear of this, gosh...there are no words.
Maybe it is good it makes no sense...imagine such a tragedy would! There is no justification, no clarification nor enlightenment to be had.

Just breathe...in and out...and hopefully there will come a day when this is not the first thing popping into your and your family's mind upon awakening.

M.K.A.W. said...

Our prayers are with you and your family during this time.

And we thank you VERY much for your support of our venture! If you wouldn't mind linking our page we'd be most appreciative.

Dan said...

I'm so very sorry my friend. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.


Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Again, I'm sorry for your loss. May you and your loved ones find the reality of God's love and peace even in the midst of grief.

Yes Anne - we aren't planning on being out of town this weekend for once but we may be in and out of doors in the garden. Love to chat with you! I didn't see the pic of the Bear and the Crow - show me! I think it is a grand idea that you are doing cards - more easily sold.

Ebezp: That picture says it all.

Autumn - thanks for your caring thoughts. Sometimes I just still can't believe it is really true
that Josh is gone.

Jules - your words make me cry. Our mom was/is my hero and she would be crying right along with us at this tragedy. I'm there with you in my heart.

Doug - Family is the substance of life at times...I am so grateful for mine.

Crazy Me - :-(

Actonbell - It was terribly sad that day.

Lisa - you know Josh was often heard to tell people pointedly that "My hair is not red - my hair is BROWN". He had the most beautiful head of light brown, tousled curls.

Thanks Julie - you know they are beautiful kids - loving and sweet. My sister Sal told me last night that were it not for those kids who desperately need her, she would happily be called home to be with Josh.

Diesel - thank you. Your prayers are very much appreciated.

Mo'a - you with such a tender Ama's heart are so thoughtful.

Neva - Your words are a soothing hand upon my sadness. Thanks sweetie.

Sherri - Hmmmm - did you notice that their hair is a tint of red? :-) Very good Dr. Watson. Thanks too for the kind thoughts.

Minka - how did you know about our first waking thoughts? It is truly like that - upon becoming conscious in the morning come the first thoughts of Josh - and then coming on the heels of that crushing reality is the disbelief and finally, questions as to why oh why.

Dan - It is sweet of you to have come by with condolences. Thank you.

Ah, my Squirrely friend - thanks for your visit. Finding God's love has been a bit of a challenge lately - more so than usual.

Matthew - thanks for stopping by, and for your prayers. It is my pleasure to link you on my sidebar - everybody please visit the "Looking For Our Little One"
link of my dear friends' son Matthew and his wife as they begin their process of adopting an orphan from another country.

The worst part is to be so young and to not understand why this had to happen to them. Why any of us?

A picture that says a 1000 words!
