The poem was extremely moving. I couldn't get through it without tears. You did a beautiful job.
The hair stroking got to me as I do that with my children. I can understand that and the meaning behind it.
I'm sending you enormous hugs. I still think of you and how you are holding up.

I am so very sorry for your loss.
I cannot imagine your heart at this moment....you are truly a strong person to be able to endure all of this.
I keep my mind on my future/and my eyes on the sky/I don't really smile much/If you were there you'd know why.

If it will give you any comfort, ask to keep a lock of his hair as a memento. There are lockets specially made to keep a lock of a loved one's hair, which can be worn.

I have no words, Phoenix.
This is a tragedy. It is a sad ending to a sad story.
I am so, so sorry.

Sending you strength through my tears.

No life should be passively relinquished due to the toxicity of others and taking steps to protect yourself may very well be the most important steps you will ever take.

My mind recalls some of my words in the Christmas poem I wrote when MIL died on Ts'giving. You use many of those same words. ".......with dignity, honor and grace; When they carried grandma to her final resting place.
YOU have such dignity, honor and grace yourself Phoenix. May your cherished memories of DS be a comfort to you in the days ahead. He was and is one handsome man with such a loving dedicated mother.
