"The days will always be brighter because he existed.
The nights will always be darker because he's gone. And no matter what
anybody says about grief and about time healing all wounds, the truth
is: there are certain sorrows that never fade away until the heart stops
beating and the last breath is taken.
Today 7 yrs. ago...our son left this earth.  We love and miss him so much. Chris Cottingham 12/29/73-10/09/08
