Thank you. I wish now I had been less than brutally honest in this meme. She died a quarter of a century ago, yet in the telling, memories long buried quickened within me.

I thought as much, when I read it, that it had been a while but also knew, just felt it, that there was a freshness to the sorrow. I truly feel for the child, and for you. I'm so sorry...

Wow.

Every time I hear that song I do remember is about his son dying.
