    Draga George, eu vreau sa-ti zic cateva lucruri in care cred cu toata fiinta mea. Tu esti nemuritor si stii asta. Asa suntem toti si cu toti suntem un tot divin. Si in esenta asta a noastra nu exista durere, suferinta, lacrimi, astea sunt in dimensiunea pamanteana in care am ales sa avem un corp. Si, da, recunosc, ca in ciuda faptului ca stiu toate astea, tot plang de sare camasa de pe mine si dezvolt atasamente cand pleaca cineva pentru ca mintea noastra sociala este limitata si nu poate vedea ca de fapt moartea nu exista, exista doar moartea corpului fizic. Asadar daca tu decizi, mai poti ramane aici ca sa cresti , sa devii adult si sa te bucuri in iubire alaturi de cei din jurul tau. Dar daca tu alegi sa pleci acum exista cu siguranta un motiv in asta pe care tu il stii. Noi cei din jur ramane sa ne gandim la ce lectii avem de invatat. Eu insa vreau sa te vad si te vad nemuritor asa cum esti de fapt! Te iubesc!

  9. Susan Reilly says

    I lost a son, the Church I attended prayed for his death . They meant well but I prayed for a miracle. I pray for a miracle for Georgie. Hang on in there, he IS he always will BE and will be your beloved son Forever and his sister’s beloved little brother Forever. A brave little man. He will never cease to BE ever! You and your family may experience further heartbreak but Georgie will have only have ever known the great and unfathomable depths of your love.

  10. Matthew says

    Sending you our love and hugs, dear Oana, Emma, and Alex.
    John, Kaiti, Eva, Pavlos, Stefanos, Matthew
