The sadness never goes away…

Alex just spotted the work in progress sketches/book in my printer and asked if he could read it. “Of course” I said, so we sat down and he read it to me. When it came to the bit where we talk about spreading Martin’s ashes, and how it doesn’t mean that we will stop thinking about him, he had to stop and started crying uncontrollably for a good 10 minutes. We just sat, holding on tight to each other, until the sobbing slowed down. I asked him if he wanted me to finish reading the book to him. He nodded. When we had read all of it, I asked him what he thought. He just nodded ‘good’. Love this little boy. xxxxxxx
