Child Loss / After almost 20 years

1/10/1991 - 9/19/1996 - Andrew Matteson

It has been almost 20 years since I first visited Tom's website and left a memorial for my son Andrew Matteson. I remember feeling a sense of relief that somewhere out there, he would never be forgotten. Honestly, I am completely amazed this site is still here after all of this time, thank you!

In the last 20 years, my grief over the loss of my second son has never really gone away, although I've done my best to shove it to the back of my mind.  Sadly it has only been compounded by the loss of a number of children belonging to other family, all because of the same genetic disorder.

More recently, I lost my father, and my first grandchild in the space of 3 months. My grandchild from the same genetic disorder as my Andrew.

I'm not dealing very well these days, although people seem to expect that of me...
