the world moves on.

March 12, 2011

Life still continues after death though the grieving process takes longer.  A year has slowly crept by and now an anniversary that feels like a forever ago is right around the corner.  Though the exact date is still a blur, the events will stay embedded in my memory for a long time.

He died suddenly at the young age of 24.  He was a quiet person who spoke with words of wisdom.  He never got mad if anyone over did the joking, never talked back or got angry.  His soul was yearning to meet with the Creator of the world.  His sleep went away first when we moved into the new house.   A few minutes here and there every night.  The most sleep he got at the new house in one night was one hour of sleep. 

Next he lost his appetite.   He could not eat.  The mere thought of eating made him throw up.  He had a constant thirst down in his throat that was not quenched. 

Depression had taken its toll and he quietly left a world with many questioning how the events had unfolded.  The kids had a first hand experience with death.  They hung out with him the day before at the park, running and screaming.  Billy ran off on the sidewalk all the way to the end of the block and almost went into the street. I shouted for him to stop.  It was a scary moment.

He never yelled or disciplined the kids for the “bad” behavior. They could pull his hair out and he would keep on laughing like it was the best feeling in the world.

He is forever missed and always remembered.
