I am continuing with the 365 Photos Challenge and I am now on Day 80. This post is a little different from my other posts. It has a special meaning for one of our own.
This photo was taken at a Compassionate Friends candlelight service for my son and many other parent’s losing their child to suicide. It was a special moment.
I am dedicating this post to our Virily member LaJenna. Her sister has lost her son. I know that feeling all too well and my heart goes out to her at this time. If you would like to read her beautiful poem and post, here is the link Death Tears Hopelessness Can Turn Into Hope. I would like to support LaJenna in any way I can. I can listen, I can offer words that helped me when I lost my child, whatever I can do I want her to know I am here for her and her entire family. Helping others brings tremendous healing for yourself. There are never any magic words but to know you have someone who can truly listen non-judgmentally, especially someone who has been in your shoes, can make a huge difference.
You are not alone LaJenna and please tell your sister there are those out there who truly do understand kind of what she is feeling. We can never know exactly how she feels as everyone grieves differently. You have support here when you need it my friend.
I will light a candle for you and your family.
