I will always have smiles, and tears, for my son Charles. He had no idea how much me meant to us and to others at that last dark moment when he took his own life.
My neighbor Wendy Holt organized things to drop off after he died by suicide. And one of those things was lots of boxes of kleenex which we needed. I use fewer tissues now than I did at first.
But like my friend Dan Dodson said, you will always be emotional at life events no matter how long it’s been. And my cousin Nimocks said that the tears you cry for your child that died are good tears because it means you love and remember them. So that’s what I’m going with. I’m not ashamed of my tears because they are my memories of someone I loved more than anything in the world.
