“How’s Stephanie doing?” Gail asked.
“Not well at all,” Allison replied.
“That isn’t surprising,” Wendy interjected. “She just lost her 11 year old son.”
“Poor woman. I’m a mother and can’t imagine what it’s like to lose a child,” Allison said, getting misty eyed.
“I visited her yesterday and she was still in a state of shock,” Wendy told them. “I just sat there holding her hand. I will do whatever I can to help her through this.”
“Lance said that Alan’s having a tough time too,” Allison said.
“Let’s pitch in and help them,” Gail suggested.
The others agreed.
Tragically, this story is loosely based on my own. Yesterday, my husband and I lost our 11 year old son. We are still in shock. I will not be blogging for an indefinite period of time.
The loss of a child is the most painful and heart-wrenching thing that could happen to a family. My thoughts and prayers are for those who have gone through and are going through this unimaginable tragedy.
