Challenging times

5 YEARS AGO

It happened on a cold snowy night 5 years ago today. I held your hand one last time,I kissed your cheek and I brushed your hair back as you told me it was almost time for you to go.
I was so scared and hurt and felt all alone. I knew I had to let you go and I knew then just as I know now that, that was the most hardest thing for me to do was tell you goodbye. You were only 16.... You experienced more pain and suffering than any child your age should.
you did put up o...ne hell of a fight son. You were so brave.

Remembering you at Christmas

     As the Christmas Season draws near my heart begins to hurt just a little more with each passing day. This year will mark Sherod's 5th year in Heaven. You know that old saying that "time heals all wounds"... well I can tell you that this wound will never be healed, but I have been learning to deal with the loss one day at a time.

   I know there is a lot of other parents who will have a hard time this Christmas Season as they are missing there loved one(s) as well.

Saying Goodbye

3 Years ago today I watched my son take his last breath. Since then my life has never been the same. This day will always remind me of that day for as long as I live. Telling my son I love him and saying good bye was not what a mother is suppose to do, but that is what happened on this Dec. 29, 2009.
The last 3 years have been very hard for me, my kids and our family. I have been running from my sons death all this time. Hoping I will wake up and it will all be a bad dream, but every day I wake and he is still not here.

A Mothers Cry

  
 
    Dec. 29, 2009 is a day I will never forget. As that day approaches my heart begins to ache harder with each passing minute. To relive that last day with you is not something I can easily share with anyone. It's hard to believe you will be gone for 3 years.....the pain I feel is still so new and heart breaking.  I often wonder if the pain will ever go away and if it does what is going to happen to me then?
    I miss you Sherod and everything about you.

writing down my feelings

Dear Sherod,
     These past few weeks have been very hard for me. Your baby sister turned 16, we are finally done moving into the new house and things are starting to settle down for me after almost 3 years of running. I am facing your passing after all this time. I have found I can not run anymore....I have no where else to run but through this emotion I call Hell.
   Sometime during the last few weeks of Sept. I got several notices about some of the kids that had past on that we have connected with over the Internet/face book ect.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHEROD!

19yrs ago today I gave birth to a baby boy named Sherod Don Nichols.  16 years later he lost his life to Cancer.
   
 
           HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHEROD!
 
   I knew the minute he was born he would change my life forever...I just didn't know how.
   At the age of 14 he started his battle with Cancer. At the age of 15 he wanted to make a difference in peoples lives so he started a Foundation. At 16 he lost his life to Cancer, but not his will to fight.

Your Graduation Year 2012

Dear Sherod,
  This would have been your year to GRADUATE HIGH SCHOOL. As I get my things together to help other parents with there childes Graduation Party I can't help but feel left out. My heart breaks every time. I am very happy for those parents, but at the same time why can't I have you here with me so we can feel the same joy.
  The R.A. Long Senior Class will be honoring you this Sat. at Graduation. They will have a mini Dino Doozer sitting in your seat and the Class President Jordy Mertz and Dani Eggleston will be speaking on your behalf.
