    I’m so sorry for your loss, Peggy.

    You probably know about this already, but… When I lost my mother, one suggestion I received from a friend was to make a “remembering box” for my young son who was only 4 at the time. I wanted him to remember the special relationship they had. I just thought that your family might make a remembering box together.

    The pain of loss eventually lessens some, which is a good thing. It’s important to keep the memories alive.

    Thank you.

    We’ve each got our own remembering boxes. Mine has his glasses, his gaudy tuba ties, our wedding announcement, a t-shirt the kids made for him with all their footprints on them, and a macadamia nut we picked up on our second honeymoon in Kona. Although, when I’m really missing him, I get out a recording of one of his performances. Then, I can hear him breathe.

    Last night, Connor B. asked if I would ever re-marry. Kids with autism always get to the heart of a matter. I told him it was a great question and the answer was probably not. My heart is too broken.
