Bless you for this acknowledgement of her grief.
Oh, I'm so sorry :( I have to say, as a mom who has lost a child, the drawing perfectly captures the emotions.
I'm so sorry. I'm so, so sorry.*hugs*
I'm so sorry for your friend's loss JC. What a profoundly amazing representation your drawing is....... made me cry....
I had friends who were dealing with 3 years gone without their son on the day another child died. I know. It's crushing. Thank you for this.
My heart hurts for them.
As a parent who has had the misfortune to bury a child, this drawing captured the feeling perfectly. I'll never forget the moment that my son took his last breath in my arms, as long as I live. It's coming up on 15 years and it's still as clear as any memory from my life, if not clearer. Thanks for using your gift. Your friends will appreciate it. I know that I do.
I know that it can hurt to survive, more so surviving a child. A feel deeply for you're friends, I hope that time can heal their wounds.
I'm sorry for your and your friends' loss.
I can't imagine there is a more profound loss. Sorry...
My heart breaks for them, and every other parent that outlives their child. Prayers with you and them tomorrow.
My heart hurts for your friends, I'm so sorry for their loss. This made me cry.
So sorry for your friend's loss - and for yours.
I'm so sorry to hear this, and am touched by your artwork. I lost my wife to leukemia just four months ago, and know that this level of loss brings us to our knees in grief every day for a long time.My heart opens to your friends, to you, to to her soul, wherever it may be.
Oh I am so sorry, I feel some of your pain! I lost a family member last year to Leukemia. Is it harder... I am with you, think not. My heart is breaking for you, your family and your friends. Sending you healing hugs.... Hard to see what i write for the tears of sorrow for all involved!!! Love ya Denise
Sending so much love to your friend. x
My grandmother has been 60yrs without her son - she still cannot talk about it.x
Ugh. Just reading the title made me start to tear up, and then I saw your drawing.I believe I can safely say that, whether prenatal or adult child or anywhere in between, losing a child is the single hardest thing any parent can do. No parent should ever have to go through that. Been through it. It sucks.My thoughts and prayers go to you, and certainly to your friend and her family. This hurts my heart badly, JC. Hugs to you.--Johann
I can't even begin to imagine the pain, the grief, the loss.Beautiful tribute, JC.
I'm so sorry for the loss of the family and the world. May the family find comfort and support from loving people like you for all the days they need.
How heartbreaking. I'm so sorry for your friend's loss and for yours as well.
utterly heartbreaking - I cant imagine how awful that must be x
I believe you are right ~ I imagine it to be THE most crushing blow that any parent can suffer. Your incredible drawing, together with your words, triggered floods of tears in me ... amen! x
I am stilled by your somber, poetic tribute. So sorry for this family's loss.
You made me cry in the middle of the school library for people I'll never meet. I'd say that's a pretty fitting tribute and memorial. Your talent is phenomenal, and your heart more so.
Thank-you all for commenting here. I hope my drawing can bring comfort to some; it helps to know one is not alone. I will carry you in my heart at the service this afternoon.
Abiding with you and praying for your friends.Your drawing is heartbreakingly beautiful.
:-( (((HUG))) and a BIG HUG to your friend... :-(
Stunning how you've just managed to artistically depict "There are no words..."My heart goes out to the family and all who love them.
My brother died when he was 35 and speaking for my parents, no. It doesn't make it easier if they're grown up.<3
Cuz You Rocketh.
