    Very graphic Tim, and I hear the sound of your heart breaking, so sorry about the loss of your son and wife, no parent should suffer the agony of losing a child, I am glad you enjoyed my poem Under The Stars She Waits For Me, I still carry her in my heart everywhere I go, I used to say we were twins, sending you my love and healing thoughts of renewal and strength, always, Your Rose xxx
