I wanted to share my wife's post because she is such an incredibly true lionhearted woman whom I admire more than I can say:
Lyon Avery Arne 8/16/16-9/20/16 "There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and unspeakable love." -Washington Irving. how I miss you...
Thank you for gracing us with your pure heart and deep love, for giving me my title as Mother and the strength to survive your loss. Your little sister turned one month old today and she was born almost to the minute 11 months after you left us. The irony is not lost on me, that she would need to arrive on the 20th of August, just four days after your birthday. And for her to come into the world at 3:37am like how you left us at around that time. You had a single cry and then I could tell you were gone. Your sister came into the world loudly. She announced herself proudly with her cries... You, my gentle lion, will always be with us and part of us. I know that the grief I carry is just part of a delicate puzzle that makes me wholly human. And I cry these tears today as I nurse your sister, telling her the story of your life, showing her the raw love I hold for the both of you. ❤️🦁🙏🏼😓 #neonataldeath #infantloss #pregnancyafterloss #babylyon #tears #grief #rainbowbaby
