What can I say? The trip was long and filled with lots of different emotions; highs and lows, laughter and crying, but most of all there was some healing.
I'm not sure my shoulders could be as strong as my brother Mickey's but would like to think they are. No parent should have to go through what they have gone through. I have to admit that my faith in God "IS" surely being tested at the point in time. I listened to all the religious people talk at Cody's funeral and not one of them could answer the question that was on every body's mind, "Why did this happen to this poor child?" What did he do to deserve being dealt such a shitty hand in life? Blind faith is what they are asking for. I not sure that I can give to them any more. Why do we see the evil people of this world rewarded with wealth and good health while children and innocent people suffer their whole lives? Good people who live their lives following God's word are raped, murdered and made to suffer. Meanwhile "Joe" the child molester walks the street or a man of God fondles a young child preaches to you and I! What God lets this happen? Death of a loved one causes many chain reactions and unfortunately they are not ALL good!
No, I'm not going off the deep end but some questions will need to be answered! Maybe they can't be answered, who knows. I will post some pics from the Virginia trip soon. Till then, C-ya!
