Yeah I know...nothing in life is written in stone , is it..

Our 2nd son is going through a devastating break up where he can't let go...all those stages of grief/ loss coming upon him...it was almost 4 yrs... 1st love.. oh those 2 thought it would never end either....

Love & forever is a gamble for anyone.. Just gotta enjoy it while it lasts..makes me think of that old Garth Brooks song >> The Dance

.. what can we do but just appreciate what is right here...to Love & Cherish what is in front of us....not to take the other for granted... our son DID.. and it bit him in the a**....

Then some do everything right, almost give too much... and still.. it falls apart... I'm sorry for your loss Sammy.
