Giannini’s heart— #griefheart number 244

Giannini’s heart

Diane lost her son to suicide on March 29, 2017 and this #griefheart is in honor of Joshua’s struggle with addiction and depression, like my son Charles. At this writing, she is struggling with those initial stages of grief–fog, shock, and disbelief. I remember this stage. I was so confused and being able to follow more than two steps was a challenge.

Joshua Giannini left his mother some heartfelt goodbye videos she shared with us. Diane’s comment below.

“Wow…. went to the site where my son passed and found this rock. A broken heart – a part of my heart is gone. Until we meet again. The Lord has been so very faithful thru this every step of the way. HE KNOWS . ( I have collected heart shaped rocks for many years ) He is faithful indeed.”
