in the dark

I visited Andrew the other night.  I was alone.  It was dark out, breezy, and very fall like.  The kind of night where I have memories as a young kid playing outside with the neighbors.  I had a great childhood.  I grew up on a small court with lots of kids and we'd spend so many nights outside running around playing "ghost in the graveyard" (ironic, huh?)!  I grew up about a mile down the road from St. Marks. 

I couldn't help but think "when the heck did I grow up?"  Of all the memories I have in Vienna and at St Marks, to think that there I was, alone in the dark, visiting my son.  It was pretty wierd.

I love this picture, it looks like I didn't have a stress in the world!

  1. Hi Kerry,

    Your son, Andrew, is gorgeous :) So is your Earth angel Katelyn. I think this is the most awful pain, the darkest hour that anyone will ever have to face. You can have all of your family around you, but it feels like the loneliest time in your life. Yet when you look there is so much support - you are not on your own in this terrible grief. I have no words to help or soothe the pain but just know there are so many walking this path beside you, in front and behind you. We are all here together
