Remembering My Incredible Son

Eight years ago you set out to float the river one sunny sunday morning with some friends,by that evening,both our lives were forever changed. There are no words Levi to describe the depth of grief I felt when I received the news you were involved in a tragic car accident. Five days and countless prayers later, God stood beside me as the machines were turned off.  With the love and support of family and friends, I have been on a long road of putting my life back together again.

You brought me joy, you were my world, and I am proud of the fine young man you became. Today, I rest in the comfort of God,who has walked me through this heartache no parent should endure. I have so many precious memories of your funny sayings, your infectious laugh, the sparkle in your eyes,and your love of life. you had many plans Levi,but now you smile down from heaven cheering us on and on and on.

I always celebrate you on this day with nachos,your favorite meal. I miss setting at the kitchen table sharing the meal.

Today is a different day ,but instead of feeling sorrow, I am thankful I could be Levi’s mother, even if for a little while. I love you Levi and I will see you soon.

Love mom.

      May the God of all comfort sustain you, and somehow sing praise to His name, which apparently you are.

      Still though, sad for your loss.

    It doesn’t get any easier…I lost my son 10 years ago.

    I will have nachos for lunch in honor of you and Levi. And I will thank God for his life. Be blessed with wonderful, joyous memories today.

    What an incredibly sad story. Sounds like a great blessing in your family and sorely missed. I know your pain but I imagine yours is far deeper as you knew him, you have pictures, stories and memories, but at any age no mother should have to bury their child!! I look forward to the day when it is less raw that I feel gratitude to have been a mother rather than letting the loss of my baby dominate.

    What tragic things you have seen – x
