Love for Linda…

I hesitated long before getting decided to write this…  I thought about it for days, and I had many doubts whether it was a good idea or not to speak out.

My dear friend Linda, from Tales From The Cabbage Patch has lost her son a couple of days ago.

If I thought she would, herself, publish a post to inform the bloggosphere, I would have let her do the talking. I don’t feel like I should be the one doing this… But I do know that she will need all the love and support, through warm thoughts and prayers she can get… And I know a lot of people on WordPress know and appreciate the incredible woman that she is…

Linda is an inspiring, positive, brilliant and loving woman. She shines the brighest through her words, and she is far more eloquent than I could ever be…  That is why I simply want to join the message she wrote July 31st on Facebook, here below. If you know Linda, you’ll recognize her amazing spirit in such painful times… Not many can push anger aside to speak with such wisdom when their hearts are shattered to pieces.

Every comment left in this post will be forwarded to Linda.




This morning I watched the sun rise because I needed to be reminded that there is still beauty in this world and that, despite the immense sadness and indescribable grief I feel at this moment, the world does go on to evolve into another day.

My Sweet Prince, Dylan Bradley, is soaring with the angels now. While I have no details as of yet, I do know that, in my heart of hearts, he is at peace.

Dylan was in that sunrise this morning and I will carry that with me for the rest of my life as well as all the wonderful memories I have of my precious time spent, albeit way too short, being his momma bear. It has been both an incredible honour and a privilege being his mother and I will be forever blessed by that most treasured gift.

Rest in peace, my Sweet Prince. You’re in the arms of the angels now.

  2. Words cannot express how sad this makes me. Though I don’t know dear Linda, I have her and her son in my thoughts. It feels like, as a parent, losing a child is a fate worse than death. I don’t know how I could survive it. Her strength shines through in her words. 💖
