I am a mother of two boys. Matthew who is 16 and Jake who is 13. On 2/11/07, Jake had a tragic accident. In the mountains near our home, the boys went dirtbike riding every weekend. On 2/9 someone erected two posts with a steel cable going across. Jake hit the cable. Jake loved life and I want to honor him by loving it too!! It's a little bleak right now but in the years to come, I want to celebrate him not mourn him. Several people (who have lost children) have spoken to me to offer comfort and support but some of them are not living. Am I wrong for wanting this?
