Sorrow and Loss

The Starry Night

Vincent van Gogh

“When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.

William Shakespeare

My dear friends, it is with a very great sorrow that I tell you that my dear son Andrew died yesterday.

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. Bernadette, my very deepest condolences to you and your family. For such sorrow to come visiting is a heavy burden for a parent. May you be carried in the arms of your angels and be blessed and surrounded by Love and the support of friends and family as you walk through this valley of shadows.


  2. Saw this just today. We have a saying that the heaviest burden in the world, is that of a child’s coffin on a parent’s shoulder. I have lost a child, too. May God give you the forbearance and strength to face it. May his soul rest in peace!
