Our 15 year old son Michael died of leukemia on Sept. 2, 2007, two days before his sophomore year of high school. He would be a senior this year and the "missing him" part is so painful. We are missing his friends too, and their place in our lives. Earlier this week, I asked if Michael's picture could be in the yearbook along with his classmates this year and was told no. It isn't the "no" that hurt so much, but in the email from school they said, "None of us want to think about it at all anymore." I was/am heartbroken. I feel like they've just told me, "We want to forget about Michael." I can't stand the thought of it. I'm feeling like I am the only one that remembers or even wants to remember my little boy anymore. What do I do from here?
