A Mother's Rant: Gabe

Monday, June 08, 2009


I am so sad. I am not sure what to do about it. I guess a healthy thing would be to just feel it.
I can not imagine what it would be like to loose a child. I hope to never have to know that. It just feels so unnecessary and wrong. Yes, we can say "It was his time to go" etc. But it just doesn't feel right some how.
I have been saying all the right things to the young women and young men in our ward. But I can't get over the feeling that it didn't have to be.
When I asked my mother in law what I can say to someone who has lost a child, she just shook her head. Nothing. There is nothing to say to comfort them. She did say that it gets easier with time. But right now it just hurts.
Love to you all.

I think many of us feel the same way Debra. Why we ask? Why? These past few years we have seen many youth in our area lose their lives. Ross Barfuss, Gabe Darrah, Grant well as other youth from Beaverton, Southridge and other High young with so much ahead of them it seemed.
There is a mighty army of strippling warriors on the other side of the veil now
