Cruisemates, I mentioned recently about the death of my daughter, April. I am remiss that I did not mentioned my wife, Sandra, noted the birthday of her late son, Erik, this past Sunday. Erik lost his life a year before April lost hers... this happened on Sandra's own birthday. So yes, we lost two adult children within 8 months of one another. Holidays and birthday celebrations aren't the same for us and we really do not celebrate anymore. Again, I ask for prayers for our lost ones and to remind to love those in your own lives, make amends and tell them that you love them.
