ANOTHER GOODBYE...

 My heart is just so heavy.  To know the pain of another is hard.  I remember when April and Emily came out for Ben's funeral...I drove to the airport to meet them.  Oh how I needed them.  I remember as we were driving home, saying to them, "I KNOW you will feel this pain someday and I wish somehow I could take that from you."  But I knew I couldn't...
 Yesterday April had to say goodbye to her 7 year old SWEET Caleb.  And now she's feeling that pain.  And it's so hard.
How I love her.  We met almost 3 years ago for the first time in person, even though we met online 6 months previous to that.  Our boys brought us together and for that I will always be grateful.  
Thank you April, for being my sister and friend.  Thank you for loving Ben as much as your own children.  Thank you for sharing Caleb with me, especially when Ben was no longer here.  I found great comfort in holding Caleb, and feeling his celestial spirit radiate through my body.
And thank you Caleb, for being true to your mission here on earth.  I love you!!!

Heartbreaking. April is BEAUTIFUL, she will be in my prayers. I can't even imagine what she must be feeling. It's nice that she has you, someone who can relate, right there with her.

I know how grateful she must feel to have you right now as she's going to need you more than ever. April with blonde hair! Wow! I've never seen her like that before. Please give her a bug hug from me when you see her.

This was a beautiful post, Becky. I know that you and April are kindred spirits and that your children brought you together. It was a pleasure to meet her when she was here for Ben's funeral. I didn't get to meet Emily. I know that you will be a great comfort to her and her family when you go to Utah. I've come to know her and her family through her blogging and her Mom's--just an awesome family. My heart goes out to them on the loss of their dear sweet Caleb. He was a pretty special little boy. They will be in my thoughts and prayers.

So many precious boys heading home together. I'm sure it has been a happy reunion for Ben, Noah and Caleb and all of the other sweet spirits that have left us too soon. Hugs to all of you special Moms.
