My heart aches in the absence of my son. The void is a gulf across which I cannot reach. I cannot hold him. I cannot embrace him and kiss his cheek. I cannot tuck him in to bed and hook up his ventilator and attach the pulse ox probe to his toe and listen to the whirring, beeping sounds of his peaceful sleep at night. But I do know the One in whom I have placed my trust. And because of him, I know that I will see Danny again some day. And he will be whole. My hope is in Christ. My hope is that one day I will be able to hold my boy again, to run with him and play and laugh until our sides ache with the joy of each other's company. And that joy will last forever. Good-bye for now, Danny. I love you. ~Daddy
Amen! and Amen! Well said Jeff. Danny was a treasure! Our arms and hearts ache but our hope is in his eternity with the Lord!
It is well, it is well, with his soul. Love you all. Caddie
