A Father's Tribute to His Late Son

Alan D. Busch has put together a first-rate blog that I recommend for anyone dealing with grief.

As Alan describes his project, "The Book of Ben" is a father's response to the life-shattering experience of losing his first-born child, Benjamin Z"L. It is an ongoing attempt to pick up the shattered pieces and put them back together again although what reemerges is never quite the same as the original. I do hope it serves to remind us there are no guarantees of tomorrow, hugs are for today and yesterday's tragedy is forever.

A recent post says, quite beautifully, "The absolute enormity of a child’s death leaves one feeling so insignificant, so powerlessly tiny. To have to navigate these treacherous waters daily is no simple task as we are invariably reminded of how vast is God’s ocean while we remain adrift in such a small boat!"

I offer all my best to this courageous blogger! Please show your support by visiting the site.
