Walking on Galveston Beach

Jim and I walked for childhood cancer on Sunday on Galveston beach. Robbie walked with us last year. We missed having him with us. We walked with friends that walk each year on their child’s birthday to raise awareness for childhood cancer.

It was good to talk with another family that shares our pain and sadness. I had someone ask me today if I am feeling better, since it has been a month. I don’t even know how to answer someone when they ask something so crazy.

    I’m sorry that people can be very insensitive and don’t know what to say or not say even if they have good intentions. My best friend of over 50 years (i’m that old plus 7 years) lost his 33 year old son (my God Son) three years ago February 27. about 6 months after, someone who he knew well asked him the same thing that you got asked and even was surprised when he just walked away. Later my friend told me about the encounter and said that he was angry at them but forgave them. He told me that losing a son (or daughter) is the hardest thing a person will ever face and that it changes your life forever. I cant even imagine. Please know that we are still praying for you and your Family
