My friend Laura Hurley’s Letter to Her Dearly Beloved Son, Brendan. πŸ’”

Laura and I connected through a Facebook group about grief. Laura lost her ever so handsome son, Brendan, a little less than a year ago. Every day she writes a letter to her son, documenting her grief journey. Every post she makes is heart-wrenching, but beautiful. They all come from a place of pain and love. This is one amazing way to share her grief journey with the world. It is truly inspiring. Thank you for doing what you do, Laura. πŸ–€

Hey son.. day 307. Of course let me start by telling you how much I love you and miss you. I had an ok day today. I kept plenty busy and sometimes that helps. I also sent a lot of heartache and love to your uncle today. He would have been 49. He loved you very much. You were little when he passed. He was goi g to be an amazing uncle and he was so excited when you were born. I hope you guys are together and I hope you we’re definitely with him on his day. I miss you both. You both died a horrible death. The cancer just ate him up. He was beautiful just like you. A wonderful brother and a good man all around. They say God only takes the best of the best. I wish I could find comfort in that. I miss you son. Every damn moment of every damn day I miss you so much and I love you more than any year could ever express. So I will just tell you over and over on both words and my tears I love you son. You still are and always will be my baby. Stay with son. I need you as always. I love you always and forever baby boy and I will always be eternally your mom. I love you so much son. β€οΈπŸ’”β€οΈπŸ’”β€οΈ
