A story about the farm where a father and son played but now the son is gone
I struggle everyday while working on this barn after everything that has happened to me and my family. Seeing the swing that we use to play on right outside the barn by all the animals. This old barn is a reminder that life will always be missing something. It is just so empty and thinking about how it all the joy and life is gone causes me so much pain. My days are becoming harder and harder to keep fighting I just can not take the pain anymore. I know that he is in a better place now, but I just can not get over that he is gone. He was a fighter. All the memories that I have of him will never be gone they will forever be in my heart. My sweet son fought for the army and dedicated his life to them. This life of mine is not easy I wife and my only child are both gone and all I have is this old barn that carries memories a
round and will always have the memories there. Everyday, I wake up and see this barn with the animals from the window and think about the past. One day, I will not be able to hold back all this pain and there will be no one left here on this old barn. When I got the phone call that my son and wife were both gone and would not be returning my heat shattered into a million pieces. All I wanted to do was join them up in heaven, but I know that they would have wanted me to live my life out here on earth, so that is exactly what I am going to do for them. I will someday see them again, but until them I will hold on to these amazing memories and cherish this old barn it is my time to go join them up in heaven.
