I am so, so sorry for the loss of your precious Sammy, what an absolutely beautiful photo of your handsome Sam, he is truly such a beautiful boy.
I love that Sammy had his own song, and I especially love that you would sing it to him. I did that as well, sang to my little girl, she would cuddle up/lean into me while I sang in the car or at home, and like you, I changed the lyrics to match her.
Oh how you paint a beautiful picture when you describe your Sammy and how much he loves his ball, a true little boy with his favorite toy, so sweet, so adorable, thank you for sharing such a wonderful memory of your sweet Sam.
Nancy, those sweet memories of your Sam are what your heart will need to help it heal, the times that Sammy made you smile, those moments when he made you laugh and especially those times when he did the most cutest things that just melted your heart with love, those are the moments that your Sammy wants you to remember and use when your heart is so broken, but it takes time Nancy, grieving has no time limit, so no need to push or rush yourself....baby steps is the best we can hope for at this time, but man oh man, how each baby step is such a huge accomplishment.....and never worry if you should stumble, and you will, visit here when you do, this beautiful forum has so many wonderful people who understand the pain you are in, the heartbreak you are suffering and the huge hole left behind with the loss of your sweet Sammy.
I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet Sammy, continue to sing to your handsome boy, continue to talk to Sammy and let him know that your love for him is still strong...even stronger now, isn't it so beautiful how our love for them grows even stronger.
Hold your sweet Sammy close to your heart and you will always fell his pure love and light touch your heart with such warmth, bringing with his love, the peace and healing your heart so deserves.
Sending our most positive healing thoughts your way, wishing for such peace to always find your heart.
Sincerely, Don & Vera
