Remembering Her Big Brother
March 9, 2016 4:55pm CST
Yesterday, I was sitting on the sofa when I overheard part of a conversation between my fourteen year old son and my five year old daughter. My son asked his sister if she remembers Nolan (my oldest son who died three years ago at the age of 13.) I heard Ella respond, "Yes," which doesn't surprise me because we talk about Nolan. Next he asked her a couple things like, "What color hair did he have? What color eyes?" I didn't hear all of the questions, just a couple. Liam was speaking in a fairly quiet tone. I'm not sure what made him ask her this. Liam and Nolan were best friends. And I know the loss has been more difficult for him than the others. I am glad though that he was having that talk with her. I hope they have those sorts of conversations when I'm not around. It's important that they remember Nolan.

I'm sure that the older kids will help the younger ones keep his memory alive over the years. Funny, the colour of someone's eyes or hair isn't really so much of a memory as times spent together. Many good times, close to his heart, I am sure that Liam will always treasure.
