I've read your kind words about our devastating loss-for which I thank you all.
And I ask for you Prayers & Positive Thoughts for us tomorrow-the most horrid day of our life begins at 2pm EDT-we chose to have a very short visitation, the service & then a short reception after it. Internment is Friday morning at 10am EDT. Somehow we will get through this-but I admit-I don't know how. The kids have been amazing-each in their own way. And all the kids, their spouses & our grandkids will be here for the next few days-plus Mom & varied & assorted other relatives & friends.
We managed to do it our way-he slipped into a coma Saturday, & we spent the time stroking him & talking to him & telling him how very much we loved him. My sister brought Mom here Sunday morning by about 7am & Adam just stopped breathing at 9:05am. It took about 2 more hours for everything to be done-which sounds awful-but really, it was enough time to say goodbye. Because it was a death at home, the Paramedics, then the police-they called our doctor to come & then they called the funeral home-but everyone was discreet & kind.
He was a special young man-he never outgrew the need to tell us he loved us, daily we heard that. And now there is a hole in our lives. We are lucky to like one another-& to have one another for support. We will survive-but first there is tomorrow & Friday.
