Chris shared some of his writing with me this morning:

Lost –

Someone is lost

Gone –

Someone is gone


Time –

Time carries on

Pain –

Pain carries on


Do you forget about pain

Do you forget about time

Do you forget about them


Worry –

I worry my mind will leave it all behind


Want –

I want to remember the joyful days

I want to feel the pain

I want to feel it but not let it consume me

I want to ensure it

I do not want to endure it


Will they be forgotten

    @Chris – that’s beautiful – thank you for sharing it with us. I wish you didn’t have to go through this pain, but it speaks highly of how much you loved Josh and how wonderful he was. You and Josh are never far from our thoughts, Chris.
