Gun and Gamers, Have considered you as a cyberspace family.
I am torn between sharing my grief and sharing what a blessing son, Chris has been in celebrating his short life.
Words cannot describe Miss Pat and my loss.
Qiet times are the roughest. Thank God we have had lots of friends and extended family visiting us and reminice over old times.
Visited Chris' body at Davis Greenlawn funeral home, Rosenberg yesterday. My son laying there white sheets drapped over him. Talked with mortician about injuries. Will spare you the details. We will have an open casket. Revisited the crash site and then was able to piece together Chris' last minutes of life. Not a pretty thought. OMG! I am haunted of the thoughts and sights.
Life's little unimportant problems have never matched this. Haveing to kneel down next to your son's once full of life lifeless body at the scene holding his cold broken hand.
Nothing will ever match this senseless tragedy.
I came to Houston from St. Louis Missouri April 30, 1977. Miss Pat my wife also came to Houston April 30, 1976. Chris was born April 30, 1983
Early on when starting family I was enveous of people with family. Bartling's just are not a big family it's just Pat and I, Adam and Christopher. Family and relitives are spread out all over the country.
I just cant finnish this post. So much to do and and and......
