18 years ago today we lost our beloved son.
Alexander Quinn O’Brien 2/23/1986-4/14/2004

Sunset.... a time in early evening when heaven reaches down to earth and we are all briefly reunited again.

I feel the rhythm of the earth
In my soul tonight
May I never fade away
And I've decided I can wait
For the requiem
We take it day by day
‘Cause that's the English way.
I saw the English sunset

    My best wishes and love to your family D. Been there. Done that. May 8, 2013. You don't 'Get over it!' You get through it, with God's help. Loved your poem. NB

      ThanQ Nan , I also know you are in this club that no one ever wants to be in. Best wishes and love to you and your family as well. Last nights sunset was brilliant and as I held his mother close when it fell, tears welled up and a flood of wonderful memories came to me. It was like a slide show in my head . Very unique experience, in fact I have struggled to think about and remember all of that life we enjoyed together.

        You know how to make a girl cry. That brought tears. Thanks for being there for her. Unfortunately God had already relieved my Warrior. But I do have some lovely friends.
