We never get over our loss, but we get accustomed to the loss, and the hole in our hearts is not quite so tender.
I have so many Facebook friends who are experiencing that loss right now as their children, husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, siblings are dying from Huntington Disease. As I read their posts I feel afresh the pain of losing inch by inch the person you love. I remember how burying a child is impossible to fathom, even as you sit across from the closed casket. I cannot imagine the pain of losing nearly everyone you love to this disease - sometimes your spouse and all your children.
These courageous survivors still love, still work, and still pray for a treatment and a cure.
To my HD FB friends: You are not alone. I'm walking with you even if we are half a world away.
