Oh, How I Miss His Voice! Silent Echoes Haunt My Heart.

I try to limit the time I spend perusing old photos and old social media posts of my missing son.

I’ve learned that while they remind me of sweet memories and happy times they also prick my heart in ways nothing else can.

I was looking for something specific the other day and had to scroll through Dominic’s Facebook page to find it. As I did, I began reading some of the back and forth comments under the posts and pictures.

This time it wasn’t what was said or where the photos were taken that hurt my heart.

Instead it was the tiny little time stamp underneath the words that took my breath away.

Nothing more recent than five years ago was recorded.

Because that’s when his voice went silent.

  1. I have a voicemail from Charlie on my phone. It’s a beautiful message and I’m so thankful I saved it. It breaks my heart to listen to it. He told me to have sweet dreams and he’d talk to me in the morning. He ended it with a kiss. We never talked on the phone without blowing a kiss before we hung up. We always blew kisses to each other when one of us was leaving the other (for school, work, whatever.) I miss that young man so very much! Twenty-two years being blessed to be his mama just wasn’t enough for me!!! I’d give anything to hear that giggle; or to hear him call for me from the other room…life without him is so very hard!

  2. Oh how I miss Daniel’s voice! Our talks in the evenings when he came home from work or hanging with his friends. I miss his laughter! I listen to videos, where he is having fun laughing, I catch myself wanting to text him or share something with him. My heart aches every minute of every day, I miss him so much! He rode off to heaven 6/19/2020, motorcycle accident, I know Jesus met him right there . Daniel, forever 19.
