Because We Care...
A 4 yr old boy clung tightly to his mommy as she mourned the loss of her grandfather. He rubbed her back with his tiny hands, catching her tears on his shirt. As he sat up, he kissed her last tear away and smiled. Holding my face, my son, Griffin told me not to worry because he caught all of my tears.
At that moment, my son was my rock. But how could he possibly understand what had happened, he was only four? As adults we often exclude children from the funeral process thinking they won’t understand or it would be too sad for them. Griffin proved to me throughout the visitation and funeral of his great-grandfather that he not only understood, but accepted what had happened.
It was with an innocent wisdom of knowing Great-Grandpa was with Jesus that the healing process began for my own son. To Griffin, he will always carry them both in his heart.
