Nova died in my arms at 4:23 this afternoon.

We love you little man. You fought hard, you made us proud. I don't know what to do without you.


  1. I am so sorry.

    From a mother who has lost a son, too.

  2. oh, sweetheart. *hug*

  3. Erin. (((((HUGGS)))))

    I can't even imagine. I'm so shocked - I thought it was getting better.

    I'll be saying lots of prayers on your family's behalf this week. He was a brave soldier, and I'm sure he has lots of angels to play with in heaven.

  4. Erin,

    My heart aches for you. You're in my prayers. I don't know what else to day.

  5. Oh, E. I had just barely heart is breaking for you and your family. May your love for each other and your love for Nova uphold and comfort you at this most difficult time. We're all praying for you. I love you! - Chels

  6. *hug* to you and Scotty. Love you hon.

  7. Extreme sadness precludes anything even remotely resembling coherent words right now, Erin.

    Sympathies and condolences to your entire family and your Moontown family grieves with you all.

    Whatever we can do. . . . .

    My love to you and yours,


    Hugs and prayers

  22. Erin, I am deeply saddened for your loss. You are an unusually strong woman and an inspiration to us all. I will remember your Nova in my prayers.

  23. Its times like this that nothing seems fair.
    Its times like this that nothing seems good.
    Its times like this that nothing seems worth it.
    Its times like this that nothing seem clear.

    Its times like this that we must remember.
    Its times like this that we must not forget.
    Its times like this that make us hold tighter to the ones that we have sitting right next to us.

    Its times like this that makes us feel like we will never be able to see the sun shine again.
    Its times like this that gives us no reason to smile.
    Its times like this that we must find something, somewhere deep inside of us that will keep us holding on.
    Its times like this that we just have to save our memories of little smiles, fresh smells, and the love that was allowed in our hearts even for a brief time.
    Its times like this that we must be thankful for what we had and still have.

    For all the moms that have had to allow a child to be taken to another place, I cannot HUG you enough to fill that loss. I will never understand why this plan of life is as it is. I just hold onto the thought that everything does happen for some Godly reason. That is how I manage through my days.
