...is to mention their deceased child. One of my biggest challenges since losing Ethan is keeping his memory alive. I want others to mention him. He's not some long lost forgotten part of our family. I count Ethan just as much as a part of the family as I ever have in the past. I do not have only one child. In fact, I still have two
boys, two children who I still love with all of my heart. When I am 80 (Lord-willing if I shall live that long), when people ask about my children, I will mention my Ethan.
Please don't worry about making me sad (or perhaps a friend of yours who has lost a child) by mentioning Ethan or their beloved child, because I will smile with gladness that you remembered and cared enough to mention him--and I am certain they will too. Gone but not forgotten.
Miss you and love you Ethan! Evan and Daddy miss you so much!
