For Konnor Mason

Welcome to my grief blog. I am a mother of four, grandmother of seven and a nurse. November 22, 2015 my world was devastated by the sudden loss of my first grandson Konnor Mason Schilling when he was just eight years young. He passed away of a gastric perforation caused by a very rare stomach bacteria, quite uncommon in a child.

I believe in my heart he knows how much he is loved and how much he is missed here on earth by his family. We have never felt pain like this as we did with his passing. I know I have struggled very hard to cope with his loss.

I write for Konnor. An outpouring of my love and of my soul. With my heart broken and exposed, I hope to express my struggle to move forward in grief. The journey to again find joy amid terrible loss and sadness. Above all, I want Konnor to know that underneath all the suffering is undying love.

I hope to make Konnor proud.
