Hey Gary, very cool with the lantern! Another thing you may consider, if you haven't already, is planting a tree on his mothers birthday together. We have an 11 year old apple tree now that is 'mom's' tree. The kid's love that tree and still talk about the day we planted it in her honor. There are lots of therapeutic things to help both of you. Best wishes for you all.

Gary,
Although we have never met, I too think of you and your son often, and send you good thoughts through the universe. Beautiful lantern, beautiful son.
If it helps, tell us something about your wife, maybe a funny story or something she liked to do. We lost my nephew suddenly at age 10, and one of the hardest parts has been that loss of just hearing his name. (His name was Jimmy).
Tell me something about your beautiful Angel, if you would like?

Somehow I managed to miss the last ten pages of this thread ... my eyes are full and my heart is broken for you.

An idea for Gage ... when he's trying to figure something that he may have wanted to ask his mom for help (or you may have deferred to her about) all him what he thinks mom may tell him as advice. There is a good chance that he knew her well enough to know what her advice would be ... and this would help with her memory (and help you parent him asking side your bride even though she's not there physically to help; she is emotionally and mentally; foster this memories and they'll become more powerful and helpful (hopefully)).

May the Lord give you strength and peace and may He give you patience with each other as you learn how to do this.

Don't come here often, but add me to those who are feeling for you. Hope we can lessen the pain.

Takes a lot of moxy to do what you are doing, DB. I have a nephew raising twins (boy and girl) on his own and I see his struggles. Be strong and our prayers are still going up for you.
