Worldwide Candle Lighting on December, 2018. Remember that the chapter will no longer be meeting at FUMCD. To find another chapter in DFW area, or to connect with our online resources, visit the website at: www.compassionatefriends.org
When a child dies, a parent is still tied to that child. Souls, tied together across universes. It doesn’t matter the age when they passed. It doesn’t matter- none of it. Their souls are forever tied.
That’s the love of a parent. That’s the love that is more powerful than death. That’s the heart that breaks and keeps breaking until their arms are filled again. It knows no discrimination based off of age, health, or time, it just is, and it always will be.
Their souls are forever tied, and there’s nothing that can break them.
That’s the beauty of unconditional love.
