    My deepest sympathy to your son. The grief and shock that comes from losing a parent is nearly unbearable. Hopefully your son will soon realize that his father isn't truly gone but that he lives on. His Dad will be in his thoughts, in his memories and in his heart forever. When my Dad passed away a dear friend sent me the following poem. It expresses these thoughts quite clearly. I found comfort in it then and I find comfort in it now and I share it with you in hopes that your son will find comfort in it too!

    [TD="class: sqtdq, bgcolor: #EDF1F7, colspan: 2"]“I am standing upon the seashore.
    A ship at my side spreads her white
    sails to the morning breeze and starts
    for the blue ocean.

    She is an object of beauty and strength.
    I stand and watch her until at length
    she hangs like a speck of white cloud
    just where the sea and sky come
    to mingle with each other.

    Then, someone at my side says;
    "There, she is gone!"

    "Gone where?"
    Gone from my sight. That is all.
    She is just as large in mast and hull
    and spar as she was when she left my side
    and she is just as able to bear her
    load of living freight to her destined port.
    Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

    And just at the moment when someone
    at my side says, "There, she is gone!"
    There are other eyes watching her coming,
    and other voices ready to take up the glad
    "Here she comes!"
    And that is dying.†Henry Van Dyke
