Jennifer, please accept my deepest condolences. It is always true that you can never fill the void of seeing and touching them but your love transcends all. He is an integral part of who you are. What a remarkable family you come from. God Bless You!

I feel your pain, but remember this entire forum still suffers from the trauma of losing little Dwan Sims many years ago. At least you know what happened. We here have no closure.

God bless.
