I’ll Never Forget, the moment your heart stopped....And mine kept beating. “No, how could I forget.” No more than I could ever forget the day your heart started beating with mine. I knew the moment it happened. Mother and child are connected from the womb to the mothers heart. That has never changed. And it doesn’t end at the grave.                                                        A parent isn’t suppose to outlive their child. I guess that’s why the agony of our loss, is like none other in life. We didn’t know how to go on. The day you left I felt I died too. I felt my heart slowly torn from me. I was consumed. Im sure it stopped beating too. My strength left with my body. You were my baby, I carried you, our child, our son. But one day I heard my heart beating in my ears. And somehow the courage came to breathe. And every day since then, I know what true courage means. It’s needed everyday to go on living, for those I love, that are left behind. Putting one foot in front of the other. Wearing a smile, even if your heart aches for your other child. And your soul, (that only God can reach). The pain, the loss, it goes that deep...    Our dear Corey,                                            Your life was a light that could light a million stars. So I look for the brightest one in thinking of you, and where you are. There aren’t enough words to tell how you are missed. Not enough tears to speak the love our broken hearts have felt ,since you’ve been away. An ocean of tears, memories each day.                         We’ve moved on, but you have moved with us, forever in our hearts you will stay... You are Loved by your friends and family. And I know I will see you again. Only then, it won’t be a dream, (for many I have had). It will be real, and we can all move where you are. We love and miss you,,our precious son, always, Mom.
