"Until we see your beautiful face again
in that land where there is no more separation,
where all tears will be wiped from our mind,
and where we will never lose you again."
John O'Donohue
30th August - 16th September 2010

The death of your child is the worst thing that can happen to a person, yet most feel educated enough to advise, to criticise, to lend their words of wisdom when they don’t know the first thing about it.
The soul destroying agony of your child dying is only truly known and understood by those who have endured it. Whatever you imagine it might be like to have your child die, multiply that by about a trillion and you’re probably not even close.

The bravest fighter and most beautiful boy there ever was, Rocco

The bravest fighter and most beautiful boy there ever was, Rocco

I can’t keep it together today my darling you know everything we’re going through and I ask you once again to protect your brothers, like you always have, but more than ever now. Today is the saddest day for me and 4 years ago without a doubt the worst of my life. Trying to get through today to reach tomorrow is one of the hardest things i’ll ever do and I’ve never been so scared. Thank you Rocco for coming into our lives and making it real, full of meaning and showing me what love is. The little boy who taught me how to love.
4 years on and we need you more than ever.
4 years on and we LOVE you more than ever.
Until we meet again my beautiful darling Rocco, Mom x x x x x x
