A friend recently shared this post on my facebook about Kaitlyn. He has suffered the loss of his own son to suicide at 15. I thought his words so beautiful, that I wanted to share them here. He even added the flowers. Thank you Randall.
“I never knew you, Kaitlyn; however, the reflection I see of you through the anguish-stricken commentaries of your bereaved mother confirms that your inner beauty exceeded even your pleasing exterior. Some flowers bloom for only a short while before disappearing from view. Your short time on earth was a time for your exquisite beauty to be appreciated by your friends and your family, though nobody knew how quickly your bloom would fade from view. There is a place where flowers never die and where the lives of our departed loved ones perennially bloom. I envision you there, Kaitlyn. Please continue to grant your mother the perspicacity of that understanding.”
