I Have A Question: Can We Talk?

Can we talk about my missing son and quit pretending that just because he’s no longer present in the body, he’s not still part of my life?

Can we say his name without also looking down or away like his death is a shameful secret?

Can we share stories and memories and laughter and tears just as naturally about HIM as we do about anyone else?

  1. Over 4 years along the road and very few people want to talk about Luke these days, including our younger son.
    I am going to a family party this evening and feeling really anxious…my cousins husband died earlier in the year. He was in his late seventies and I get it, they will want to talk about him. I’m not sure if I can do it, as we haven’t seen some of the family since Luke’s funeral.
    I’m going because it’s my cousin’s son’s 50th and he and his wife were close to Luke and have been very supportive since he died…I don’t know how long I will last!
    It’s been a hard day today 💔
