Through our adventure called life, sometimes loss is presented to us.
The nature of mortality is that we as children lose our parents.
We dearly love them, and appreciate our creator for giving us souls that survive death.
We as family travel through this experience.
It is not meant to be a punishment.
It is a teaching given to us to help us mature and become learned.
It is sad yes.
We can make it through this difficulty as a family.
Something that in rare situations happens, is the loss of a child.
We as siblings need to be supportive to our sisters and brothers when this happens.
It is not your fault if this happens to you.
I will tell you something.
In my youth I had a marriage type relationship to a woman that was entirely my best friend.
We played games with each other, taught each other religion, we ate together, we hugged, we were on the adventure of life, together as a team.
She became pregnant. Being a parent was something she would be glorious at.
Before she gave birth, we tragically lost our child.
I did not react to this well. I had difficulty believing it because I knew myself well enough to know that if I dwelt on it I would be scarred with depression.
Our relationship had its ups and downs from that point, and eventually it ended due to my failure to be at that time, worthy.
As I mentioned, the woman was my best friend and I still miss her to this day.
As parents, it seems we each have our own ways of handling situations as difficult as this, mine was denial.
What I have learned from it that I can share with my brothers is, be supportive of your wife, very supportive.
Try to get through it together as a team and avoid anger.
I would like to say a prayer, if you will hear it, thank you.
Dear Oldest Parents,
Please comfort every parent that experiences this loss.
Please hug their child while it is with you in the after life.
Please help the husband support the wife.
Please help the wife support the husband.
Please help the marriage remain.
Please keep their minds at peace.
Please give them rest.
Please give them visible benefits and progress.
If they wish it,
Please give them more children.
It is important you keep your majority of focus that neither parent is at fault.
It is important you tell your marital partner they are not at fault and be supportive as to why.
Remember, the soul survives death,
even if we have lost someone,
the oldest parents, have not.
You are in good company.
A Memorial To Lost Children.
Your Brother David
