On Monday October 30th, 2017, I started to come back to emotionally naked after drifting away for some time. I started on the article where I last read which was “CareTalks Presentation Video.”

I felt Anne Moss Rogers source of love for her youngest son, Charles Aubrey Rogers, when she talked about him during her speech in the video. I felt inspired and felt that compassion and love for her and her son again like the first time I saw her website.

On my break at work, I decided to get onions and pickles to add to my lunch. I noticed a found a pickle heart. I thought immediately this could fit in with Anne Moss Rogers’ #griefheart project.

I took the picture on my cellular phone. I never met either Anne Moss Rogers or Charles Aubrey Rogers, but I feel connected with the “village” found online on her website. This is a reminder of the “comeback” feelings I felt towards Charles Aubrey Rogers the first time I saw this cheerful, zealous individual. It made me feel compassion for his death.

Charles will be a person missed always and made a impact and impression on all who got to know him personally –or like me through his mother’s blog.
