Day 15

Bereaved Parents Awareness Month Day 15.

I’ll never forget where I was standing, leaning against my dresser in my bedroom, after I got the phone call from my son Jami telling me that Billy had been stabbed.

I called Billy’s Dad, and my brother Brian and my husband Matt was on the phone with the hospital trying to find out about Billy’s condition. We were 2 hours away from where he was.

I was praying God’s Word over Billy saying “Billy will not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.” Psalm 118:17

I can’t remember who told me that Billy had died but my heart already knew that he was gone.

The words of this song are so true. “To think that providence would take a child from his Mother while she prayed, is appalling.”

Although Billy did physically die, his memory will live on through me and his son Logan and we will declare the works of the Lord.
