Just thinking…and looking back at who is gone

My dear younger son, Erik  Copyright 2012  http://www.anotherthousandwords.wordpress.com

This shot was taken, many years ago, by a close friend.

I feel it epitomizes everything that was my son, Erik…and what he attempted to do for others in this world.  Even at 9 years old, he was a very deep- thinking young man.  He went to university and became a Mechanical Design Engineer…and moved on to become someone who travelled the world, working to redesign pollution control systems.

His life was cut short on Thanksgiving Day (November 28th), 1996.

Oh…what good he could have done, if not for that accident in Poland.

Almost 16 years and I continue to mourn–and miss him.

  1. Ugh, so sorry.
    What a beautiful and bright son.

    I have lost people who have meant the world to me.
    It helps only to think of them in a better world,
    looking in now and then
    on me, trying to improve this world here,
    not yet done with whatever I was put here to do
    or I’d be gone, too.


      • By your words I can feel your loss; I sense your profound love for your son. You two must have had a great bond. Your memory of him is so vivid still, despite the years.

        We find solace in the thought that he now dwells in Eternal peace.
