    gardenbug~You are in my thoughts as well. I know how much grandchildren are the apple of there grandparents eyes. Elliott is what my parents live for. You & grandpa are in my heart today!!! This is a day you should never have to go through but for some reason you do and I hope you can find peace from the sweet life Reed had in your heart.

    Reading here forces me to think about the bigger world, not just my pain. Responding can be therapeutic. So it helps us be strong...when it doesn't come easily. At least for me.

    Sarah's brother sent us the second quote above. He is special too.

    Our friend, the mortician, gave us this poem last night.

    I’ll Lend You a Little Time
    I’ll lend you a little time, a child of mine, He said.
    For you to love while he lives, and mourn when he is dead.

    It may be six or seven years, or twenty-two or three,
    But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?

    He’ll bring his charms to gladden you, and shall his stay be brief,
    You’ll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief.

    I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return.
    But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn.

    I’ve looked the wide world over in my search for teachers true.
    And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes, I have selected you.

    Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain,
    Nor hate me when I come to call, or take him back again?

    I fancied that I heard them say, Dear Lord, Thy will be done.
    For all the joy Thy child shall bring, the risk of grief we’ll run.

    We’ll shelter him with tenderness, we’ll love him while we may;
    And for the happiness we’ve known, will ever grateful stay.

    But shall the angels call for him much sooner than we planned,
    We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes. And try to understand.



    However, "The antidote to death is life" is the best I've seen yet, in terms of healing. After all, hiding away from death is not going to help heal ourselves, going out and living will help us experience what we need for our healing.

    Rest peacefully sweet Reed. Thank you for touching our lives so much.

    I guess he got tired of stomping
