I entered the cool darkness of the chapel and felt immediate relief from the heat and the harsh glare of the sun. I went seeking some time to gather my emotions. As usual, after a visit to Andrew, my heart ached with sadness. I felt anger at the waste of his life and futility that there was nothing that could change his situation.
I suppose I went to the chapel seeking the answer to the question that has haunted me for 15 years. WHY? Why Andrew, why me, why should our family have to experience so much pain? My brain knows there is no answer but my heart still seeks it.
I glanced up at the window and saw this ghostly apparition. A figure surrounded by sadness but offering consolation.
I left the chapel again knowing that there is no answer to why but there is consolation if you look for it.
