You have my deepest sympathies in the loss of your son. Our children are our heart and soul. Children should not leave this world before a parent.
My heart goes out to you in the loss of your husband. It is going to be a new role, for you, and a continued challenge as you navigate these new waters.
To you both: Keep faith and love. Tell the stories, and he shall live on in our hearts and memories. Laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time. Look to your families: blood, as well as, others and to your MAC family. Know that I am here for you as you both have been here for me.
May our Lord wrap you all in his arms with Grace, strength, and healing as you move forward. My love to you both,
