Hello all, hope you are safe and well.
I usually manage to keep reasonably upbeat, but today is crap.
Today would have been DS2's 31st birthday, but sadly he hanged himself at the age of 19 in 2008.
A friend of his who shares the same birthday, and lives locally, always goes to the place where the ashes are buried and leaves flowers and drinks a beer in his memory
I was supposed to join him, and suppose I could, but I know that I would have wanted to hug him, and be hugged (yes, I know, same thing) but with social distancing, we couldnt.
I'm very fortunate that his friend stays in touch, and I love to hear about their family (they had a gorgeous baby girl a week ago, their third child) but it makes me wonder what DS2 would be doing if he was still here? Would he be married, have children?
He had a great female friend, T, and they always said if they got to this age and weren't married, then they may as well marry each other!I
Such a waste of the life of a warm, loving, talented and very funny person.
