My son looks at me with tears in his eyes... I ask him how he is feeling and he replies, "I am scared to think about the good memories mum" I ask him "why?" He replies "because the good memories are good then I remember I wont be able to make any more with dad" "who will I look up to now mum?" He starts to sob, so I pull him to me and hold him. I can't say anything, not one word can be said because I am fighting the gut wrenching lump in my throat and I feel like vomiting. All I can do is hold him.

Jewel The tough questions will continue. My four year old asked me yesterday why everyone else at kinder has a dad but she doesn't. I guess with father's day coming up there'll be a lot more questions and a number of sad moments. Sangeeta
