[Editor's Note: Dana from Roscommon Acres shares a moment of the grieving process as she figures out what to do with her son's clothing. She keeps trying to tell herself that they're just things, but she's struggling. It's a moving piece that could probably use a little of your love as well.]
They’re going to be making a comfort pillow from the fabric. Something to hold close. Something to hug. Something to touch. I think how small that pillow will be, then try not to. But the thought is already there and it won’t go away just because I’m sorting through clothes trying not to think about how small a pillow would be made from any of these things.
