When Will It Stop Hurting?

How can a strong, healthy baby be here one minute and gone the next?

How can I comfort the parents whose arms are empty?

How can we keep on living?

When will the tears stop flowing?

I know time will help heal but it hurts so much right now!

I understand the plan of salvation, but it's hard to even take a breath.

Farewell, our sweet, sweet, Grady.

Connie, I've cried tears today badly, as soon as I got a text from Tauna this afternoon. I'm so glad we got to see that sweet little guy last weekend! I can't believe how sweet and good natured he was...I don't think I heard a peep from him. Truly an angel!

My heart aches for Candice...I can't imagine the hurt, tears, agony and sadness she must be going through right now!!

Sending prayers of peace and comfort to you and your family and may you feel an abundance of friends and family who love and care about you during this difficult time.

Your last sentence: "but it's hard to even take a breath", made me cry even harder.

Connie you really truly, are one of the most inspirational women I know and I just hope you know how much I love and care about you!!

Connie, I've followed your blog for some time and have never commented, but I just had to when I read this post.

I am sobbing and my heart is just broken for all of you. Your sweet Grady was born just a month after our youngest and my mind cannot even wrap around how completely heartbreaking this must be.

wendy said...

I hurried and came over here this morning as Ann left me an email that your grandson passed away.
I wanted to throw up.
I was paniced.
Such sorrow. His BIG smile just warms your heart.
There is little that takes the pain away right now...........yes, even though we do understand the plan of salvation and THANK GOODNESS for that blessing.
But the pain is something we each have to experience.

You know I will be thinking of you and praying for Grady's parents and all of you.
So many questions....so many why's.

Love you my friend.

Sometimes it hurts for a long time. We don't want it to, we want the pain to go away now; unfortunately, it doesn't always work out the way we'd like.
