Just wanted to let you know……

 

Scott and Anthony  2012

 Scott and his grandson Anthony at the Grand Canyon shortly before his illness was diagnosed

Dear Scott,

It has been a year since you left us and we are still in total disbelief. How could it be that long since we saw your smile, or heard you laugh? Talked to you, asked your advice? All of those “firsts” without you, holidays, your birthday, have been a nightmare for all of us. Your sons are struggling with being fatherless and your daughter is adrift without you in her life.   Wayne and I feel so helpless that we cannot do or say anything to help them with their sadness and loss, as we are also so incredibly lost without you. There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t think of you, or talk out loud to you or wish so badly we could pick up the phone and hear your voice just one more time.

I know it will be awhile before we get to see you again, but we just wanted you to know how different our lives are here without you….so very different.

We love you…..

Wayne, Sandy, Bryan and Chris

I'm so, so sorry. I know we'll get the answers when we get to heaven, but right now it's there's just no understanding these kinds of losses. My son-in-law was killed in a car accident at 31 leaving my 2 1/2 year old grandson and my daughter... So sad.....and heartbreaking. I wish I knew what to say to you to help ease your pain.......so huge when we're feeling it for our loved ones.

Sending the biggest, comforting hugs I can via the web...

Bless your heart Sandy. I was in tears reading this post. I feel so bad for all of you, especially the kids. I lost my granddad very young, and he was really like a father to us at the time. To this day I say a prayer for him and my grandma every morning, along with all my other loved ones, and never forget the love I felt from them. I know Scott wasn't a granddad, but a father, probably spouse, child, and sibling to some, and no doubt friend to many. I really believe they are here with us, guiding us through our days, lifting us up in hard times, and celebrating along with us in happy times. I hope remembering how blessed you are to have had him in your lives will help just a little bit . . . you have an angel in Heaven praying now. Sending prayers and huge hugs, Julie

When we lose a dear one,it takes so much effort to just "be"--
As time go's oln, you still miss them but somehow remembering the good/funny times, helps us all get thru another day.
Blessing to you and yours--

Sandy, We seem to hold on to our losses so closely the older we get. We know the value of a life and how blessed we were for each day we had with a loved one. A beautiful letter to Scott. E
