another funeral

WM and I were at another funeral today. We don't know our neighbours very well, just that they have three children. Their youngest one was born with a heart condition. Last week, his fight for life ended. He would have been four in April.

I have never been to a funeral for a child - it was incredibly sad.

I haven't got a photo to show you; I don't have his parents' permission to use the one from his funeral service sheet.

  1. I agree-there is nothing sadder than a funeral for a child. Give yourself a hug from me........

  2. Those are the toughest. It just doesn't seem right to loose a little one before his life has been lived.

  3. Oooh. I am weeping for you and his family. Four years old is far too young to have to say good bye. Yet I trust that God has a plan....else the world would shatter to bits at the sadness.

    I bet he would have liked a quilt covered in donkeys wearing rain boots!

  4. This is just too sad! My thoughts are with his family and you. I am very thankful I only had to attend two funerals so far.

  5. Oh, bless his precious heart! I have been to far too many funerals for children and hugged too many grieve stricken parents, as well. My heart and prayers go out to all of them. And a big hug for you...I know how it feels to even attend such a funeral!

  6. I too have recently been to a funeral for a 4 yo - he was killed in a farm accident. NOt nice and very sad indeed

  7. Oh honey, that is just not fair, poor little soul. Be gentle with yourself.

  8. Oh Lynne, that is so sad. Both for you with all of your recent anniversaries and fro the family with the loss of their little one. Best Wishes to you all to aid in coping.
