A New Angel

There is no greater pain in this world, I believe, than the pain of a parent who has lost a child.  It happened to one of my dearest friends this week and I cannot imagine her pain.  I don't have the words to comfort her. 

But I hope she knows how much her son loved her.  I hope she knows that he felt so safe and secure when she walked in to his hospital room in Hawaii for the first time.  I hope she knows how he loved each and every card she made sure were sent to his hospital room.  I hope she knows the pride he felt at finally introducing his wife to her.  I hope she knows the incredible joy he felt seeing his daughter snuggled in his mother's arms.  I hope she knows how he treasured each moment he spent with his sisters and brother. 

I hope she knows she has a new guardian angel watching over her.  I hope she knows he will always be there in her heart.  I hope she knows.

My words are inadequate.  I close this post with her own words.  I hope she knows I love her.
