For Roxy

Roxy Beren Goodwin, 15th May 1979 to 11th November 1983

My firstborn, my darling. You gave me the best and worst times of my life.

Age is supposed to bring with it wisdom, but I still don't understand why
innocent children have to suffer and die. I guess I never will.Posted by Picasa

What a poignant post. It makes me want to hug everyone I know and love and that can't be a bad thing.

Shirley
I can empathise..our second born was lost to us February 1989.
Consider yourself hugged.....Time only slightly eases the pain

Thanks to all you wonderful bloggers (and the ones who have emailed me privately). I don't normally share this sort of thing, but the only thing I can do for Roxy is to keep her memory alive. Bless you all.
