Happy Birthday Shiloh


My amazing boy Shiloh died 4 years ago at 6 years old. What a statement, yet it's true. Today he would have been 10 years old. I can barely believe it.

I am crushed at times by the bitter sadness of not having him around us everyday.

But there's nothing better than celebrating those you love, and today I send all my love out to the universe for Shiloh.

A very special person sent me some words to live by today, that I share below:

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. ~From a headstone in Ireland

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight. ~Kahlil Gibran

Hi Holli,

Sorry for your loss.
May the Lord console and replenish you such as only he can.
Continue to be strong the way Shiloh would have expected you to be.
Shalom!

Hi Holli,

Beautiful words, so true, grief really never ends...on the other hand, the memory of a close person gone only is refined.

I try hard to connect with the happiness of having gotten to know the family member I never will see again.

Thanks for your openness and also, what a sweet picture of a boy and his mother.

Holli, I'm really sorry for your loss. I pray that God will continue to give you the strength to endure each passing year.

Someday day soon you will see him again.

Hello, I'm sorry for your loss. I believe we'll all be together again with our loved ones one day. Look forward to that and God bless!

One I loved more than the sky died nearly 30 years ago when she was 21 and I think about here every day. I can remember her voice and her touch and her laugh as though she is still here. I still dream about her and I still turn to talk to her. I can never let go - and never will. And I should not. She was part of me - she is part of me - forever.

Hello, Holli ... just so sorry to learn of your loss. I didn't know. A mother's love for her son knows no bounds and yet binds her completely. And oh, such a beautiful boy - your memories of him will ensure he lives forever. In that way, he's there with you still, and always will be.
