I am very sorry to hear of your son's tragic and unexpected death. The death of one's child is one of the most difficult losses we can experience, so I hope you have a group of individuals who are continuing to provide you with the support you need. I did not know about it until this month when I read your web page after seeing the movie "Serving in Silence" - Dear Grethe, my prayers to you and Diane - I hope the Lord is holding your son in his arms - Your faithful admirer: Ketty

Dearest Grethe - I say 'again' because I think, if memory serves, that I wrote you expressing my condolences not long after Andy passed away. And I do know your heartbreak. All too well. My son died at 27 from liver and kidney failure. He was always sickly and frail though you'd never know to look at him - he was a handsome six-footer in love with the Marine Corps. :) (At least he wasn't a Navy puke LOL!!!) He passed the ASVAB but could not get past the physical. It has now been 18 months for me - about 3 years for you - since we lost our sons - and I wonder how, or if, you have coped with it. I am in a seriously bitter depression but fight through each day at my job and at home. Gene's sister and I are all that is left of my family, but we are like the Three Musketeers Minus One. I'm so glad you have your family and grandchildren and most of all, Diane, to help you through each day. Much love to you, wishing you well for the future. Kindest regards Diane Smith
