Hambone,

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Adam is in a better place now. Peace. This reminds us all how short life can be!

Sending you thoughts and prayers.
You are so right Larry.. It is a double heartache for Grandparents.

First, you are grieving for the loss of a grand child... But, just as devastating, is the pain, I don't know how to word this... it's the agony you feel for your child who is suffering. That baby is no longer in pain....but you child is hurting bad... And it's a hurt that you can't really fix.

As you get older.. and you've had, parents and friends and especially friends parents passing away... you come to realize that dying is part of life. It happens.

But, losing a child is a whole different ball game. You expect parents and friends to pass away...

And those Sunday School answers just aren't much comfort to a parent who has lost a child.

This is the kind of loss that you never really get over. BUT, things will get better in time.

I know there are no words anyone can say Hambone, I'm so sorry, it's a tragedy and my heart goes out to you and your family.

Hambone said: Lillie asked to say a few words at Adams funeral. She's 10 and she spoke with out notes and unrehearsed. She started out, "I want to tell you about my brother, Adam." She went on to talk about how he smiled with his whole body, she described how he laughed and how he cackled when she rubed her nose on a "special rib". She talked about what Adam liked and his favorite toys, songs and TV show... and how they played the theme song over and over he'd just smile.... elievable... Then she said, "I want to pray now." and she prayed that God would teach Adam how to crawl, walk, and run... and talk. That there would be plenty of kids for him to play with and told her mom to not be sad because God was holding Adam tight in his arms.... I wish I could remember more of what she said.

I couldn't have done as good of a job as Lillie did. And I certainly couldn't have held it together like Lillie did.
....and not a dry eye in the house... yeah, not sure how she got through that.

At a loss for words Hambone, really....there is nothing I hate more in life than tragedies like this. Is there anything more UNFAIR ... If there is a purpose... I just don't like it....or agree with it...

I was just reading today at the Eye Doc's in a People's magazine, how Pastor Rick Warren's 27 yr old son committed suicide Rick, Kay Warren Kept Son's Mental Illness Private for Sake of His Dignity, Grieving Couple Tells Piers Morgan

It seems He & his wife has come forth ...with their sons/ the families private pain....and will be advocates for more understanding of those who struggle with severe depression (I know unrelated to Williams Syndrome disease) but yet another awful tragedy for a family to bare....this came to mind while looking upon your families happy faces of years past..with Adam's birth... when the future seemed so bright & promising.

Very strong little girl that Lillie is...and will be.

I've never been able to get up and talk at a funeral before. I always started getting choked up and couldn't. This time was different. I think it was that I felt it was my obligation. That I owed it to my son to do this, and do it well.

I didn't do it without notes, but I might have. I thought about it for the couple of weeks I had, and the day before I banged out three pages to read. I was able to make it through OK.

My dad then got up unrehearsed once I invited others up and did an unbelievable job.

I have bangs for the first time in four years. It's weird.

I really like your hairstyle. It frames your face really nice!

Thanks! It was so funny, there were three fourteen year old girls getting their hair done for homecoming. We all ended up having a talk about the 90's and that their class is the last one that was born in the 90's in HS.

One of them asked "what were the 70's like?"

Lovely pics Diwali!

Love the hair, really suits you.

Ummmm bangs?

Could they be the fringe or the wavy curls at the bottom of the hair?

Thanks Wysh! You don't have bangs in the UK? Yes it's the fringe. I had bangs pretty much my whole life and then after the D was filed I of course cut my hair fairly short and started growing out my bangs. Because for some reason women cut their hair when they are love lorn. Lol.

Well I'm no expert on hair but I think the fringe is called the fringe over here.


ETA, just checked and it is listed as American slang.

I like the fringe Diwali, you have lovely hair

I have had two hairstyles in my whole life:- (1) long hair with no fringe (2) long hair with fringe. For the last 3 years I've been going with option 2 but I am considering going for option 1 again to hide the wrinkles in my forehead

I straightened it today and it just isn't the same.
