      I'm so sorry for your loss. Your husband was very young, leaving you with a young child to raise alone. I hope when you start to heal that you can tell your son about his father. I'm sure he will need pictures and memories made from you to remember his father. Remember to take care of yourself, as well as, your son. You've been through a lot, and you need to take the time to grieve. Prayers for your health.

      I am sorry for your loss. Hug that little boy and give him all the love his dad would have wanted to provide. Take the time you need to heal and remember that your husband lives on in your son. Cherish that little man!

      I truly understand your pain and loss, and I feel for you. Having lost Mom and Dad to this while sitting on their bed I am taken back there right now reading your post. I hope you find comfort in knowing that his pain is gone now.

      I also lost my husband Feb. 22 of this year and I know how you are feeling. My husband had Alzheimer's and I had ten years to prepare, but you are never ready. I know he is in heaven and happy and well, but I miss him so much. God bless you and your little son. I will keep you in my prayers.
