"WHAT IS NORMAL AFTER YOUR CHILD DIES?
Normal is having tears waiting behind every smile when you realize someone important is missing from all the important events in your family's life.
Normal is trying to decide what to take to the cemetery for Birthdays, Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years, Valentine's Day, etc.
Normal is feeling like you can't sit another minute without getting up and screaming, because you just don't like to sit through anything anymore.
Normal is not sleeping very well because a thousand what if's & why didn't I's go through your head constantly.
Normal is continuously reliving that horrible day of learning of your child's death through your eyes and mind, holding your head to make it go away.
Normal is having the TV on the minute you walk into the house to have noise, because the silence is deafening.
Normal is every happy event in your life always being backed up with sadness lurking close behind, because of the hole in your heart.
Normal is telling the story of your child's death as if it were an everyday, commonplace activity, and then seeing the horror in someone's eyes at
how awful it sounds. And yet realizing it has
become a part of your "normal."
Normal is coming up with the difficult task of how to honor your child's memory on their birthday and holidays, and survive these days. And trying to find the balloon or flag that fit's the occasion. "Happy Birthday”? Not really.
Normal is my heart warming and yet sinking at the sight of something special my child loved. Thinking how he would love it, but how he is not here to enjoy it.
Normal is having some people afraid to mention my child.
Normal is making sure that others do remember him.
Normal is after the funeral is over everyone else goes on with their lives, but we continue to grieve our loss forever.
Normal is seeing other families who are "whole" and thinking of how lucky they are. And thinking back on memories of when we were a whole family and knowing that it will never be that way again because our family chain was broken.
Normal is weeks, months, and years after the initial shock, the grieving gets worse, not better because with every passing day, you miss them more.
Normal is not listening to people compare anything in their life to this loss, unless they too have lost a child. Nothing compares. Nothing.
Losing a parent is horrible, but having to bury your own child is unnatural... a complete nightmare that you never wake up from.
Normal is taking pills, and trying not to cry all day, because you know your mental health depends on it.
Normal is realizing that you do cry every day.
Normal is being impatient with everything and everyone but someone stricken with grief over the loss of their own child.
Normal is sitting at the computer crying, sharing how you feel with chat buddies who have also lost a child.
Normal is not wanting to hear that my child is in a better place because although I know he was is in heaven, I will never understand why my beautiful child was taken from this earth. It makes absolutely no sense to this grieving mother.
Normal is being too tired to care if you paid the bills, cleaned the house, did the laundry or if there is any food... too tired to even get ready to go to the doctor to find out why you’re so tired.
Normal is asking God why he took your child's life instead of yours.
Normal is knowing you will never get over this loss, not in a day nor a million years.
Normal is having therapists agree with you that you will never "really" get over the pain and that there is nothing they can do to help you because they know that only bringing your child back from the dead could possibly make it "better".
Normal is learning to lie to everyone you meet and telling them you are fine. You lie because it makes others uncomfortable if you cry. You've learned it's easier to lie to them than to tell them the truth that you still feel empty and it's probably never going to get any better -- ever.
And last of all...
Normal is hiding all the things that have become "normal" for you to feel, so that everyone around you will think that you are "normal""

"Not a day goes by for the last 11 yrs that I haven't thought of you. I know you were checking in the other day as you are the only one with that distinct smell of flowers, I always smelled it when I stopped where you died. I dreamt of you the other night, I can't remember what you said but you were smiling, that very contagious smile. Today always stirs so many emotions and memories,  Many great memories, you touched so many lives. I had the pleasure of watching you grow from the silly kid that dragged me into the pool fully clothed into the friendliest, brightest, most fun loving man you had become. We may not have been blood, but I loved you as much as one of my brothers. Everyone still feels the sting of pain losing you brought, your parents and siblings especially but the rest of us that loved you as well. I pray you are at peace, rest easy Keith."

"I sit here looking at the pictures, the saying;s quickly going from one to another,and then it occured to me as fast as the pictures etc are flipping from one to another is how quick Keiths life was taken. Something we should all think about, just like the bible says in the twinkle of an eye.As many tears that flowed that day., still flow to this day, they never go away. there is a quote, it says There is no greater gift than for a man to lay down his life for a friend, oh how I wish I could  of layed my life down for him, SO missed Keith"

This tribute was added by Diana Natale on 21st March 2014

"To my son  Keith although your gone in body, your heart is forever touching mine. There is no greater pain then the loss of a child, you were so very special The pain I  feel from your loss is just a bad gift that keeps on giving. But some day we will see each other again baby boy
