Momma and David

Before I was born in 1950 my parents had a son, David. He died in a house fire in 1947 at the age of 3. My mother never spoke of him. I cannot imagine the hurt she endured; I am certain that her heart was broken.

I created this layout based on Palette #5 from The Color Room .

I love this. I can't remeber if I ever saw a picture of David.

WOW. My grandmother lost a son when he was 4. Even up until the last few months of her life, she mentioned him. I don't think that kind of hurt ever goes away.

David was loved so much by my Dad, Leon and his sister, Anita. His name has been given many times in his honor, in fact one of my brothers' first names is David for him.
