"In Memory of Irvin Frank Jr May 5th 1976 ~ October 19th 2002"
|Rest in Peace Irvin Frank Jr||3/13/09|
|This is dedicated to all of "US" who have lost loved ones.|
The God of All Comfort
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,
who comforts us in all our troubles,
so that we can comfort those in any trouble
with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
We little knew that morning,
God was going to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you,
you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

It's hard to think of my son as gone, but I know he'll always be in my heart,
Grief some days you think it'll kill you and you can never tell which way you wake up, A good day can turn bad and a day that's starts out so badly can suddenly turn around. It is like pain or an illness or something, you can never tell which way it's going to go. I think I'm getting used to it. It becomes a way of life after awhile. There's no remedy... except time.
My son was born Monday May 5th 1976 at 4:00am at the Tofino General Hospital. Jr's dad was the only one with me, when he was born we were so excited, we laughed and cried, we were so proud of him. My son was born with yellow jaundice he had to stay in the hospital altogether 1 month, Dr Henderson let him go, when he was two weeks old we were living at the Thompson Hall, he cried all night, we took turns walking him, singing to him, we had a eight track machine, his dad put "Chubby Checker" tape on, he went right to sleep. We used to tease him about that.
When I was a few months pregnant with him, I was so nervous about being a mom, I wanted to be a good mom, I felt like I didn't know much.
My son was a good boy, He never got mad at me, never raised his voice at me, he checked his sisters & brothers if they talked back to me. He was a loving baby a gentle lil boy, always thought of other kids if they didn't have what he had, he was so generous, he was always so affecenate with me, always giving me hugs and big smooch on my cheek, I miss thouse hugs and smooches, my youngest son James reminds me of him, he always telling me he loves me.
My son growing up in Ahoushat grade school he always looked after the kids that got picked on. He came home one day he was in grade three he was so sad "Why do kids have to be mean to each other"
He was so bothered by that, he always protected a younger boy, it wasn't the first time he protected that young guy, When I see that young guy with his family now, how he looks after his family, I always think of my son.
When I look at my nephews, I see alot of Jr in them, how family come first. How loving generous and gentle they are to their moms.
My son has been gone now for six years, I treasrure my memories of him, how we spent the last two week of his lif by having supper together, alot of the time it was just Jr and me. To my nephews take the time to hug mom and tell her you love her, she knows but it always nice to hear it whispered in your ear, that's what I miss.
My mom wasn't really ready but in a way she wanted to write something.
This is going to be the first of many.
