Good night, sweet prince: And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest...
-William Shakespeare

It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.
-Rose Kennedy

And then, there were 4.

Memorial Day 2013 - We were in the car on our way to the cemeteries with Danielle. She being the curious child she is talks of how many members are in our family. "three, there are three members in our family." I say. Shan pipes up, "Four, there are four" Not really sure if he's adding in HIS brother or what I look at him. His eyes say it all and then his voice, "I'm just trying to make this conversation correct, there are FOUR members in our family. One is in HEAVEN" "Yes, you are correct, how funny I got caught off guard by you! I won't let that happen again!" I say. See even when I think he isn't paying attention or has blocked the worst day of our lives out forever he reminds me, he too thinks of William daily! At the cemeteries I look around, sad sometimes that we didn't have a funeral for William and yet grateful his cremains are at home.
