This woman lost her son, suddenly and unexpected, although he had been battling an illness for some time. You expect to lose your parents, but losing a child must be a huge heartache; unimaginable.
I feel holidays are tougher when going through grief. On July 4th, as I understand it, a family member who shot off a firework, looked up and asked for his sibling to show a little sign. He said, "This one's for you!" and lit it. Someone else in the family had impeccable timing with their camera ... the firework shot off turned out to be ... an elongated RED SHAPED HEART, with little white stars surrounding it! Seeing that photo gave me holy shivers; the hairs on my arm stood straight up when the woman shared her story and showed me that photograph.
I love synchronicity! What a way to pay homage to and remember a loved one; and to get it back, from the other side!
