Our family is getting ready for a trip to the family farm in Athens, GA on Wednesday. As always my heart and my thoughts are with your family. I know both the memorial and the service on Wednesday will be beautiful, just like beautiful Pablo. Our family steps forward everyday in Pablo's honor. It will be Pablo's gentleness of spirit that I will let guide me as I raise my boys. We will be with you in spirit, as we are everyday! The Hickey's.

I don't know your family at all, but my heart goes out to you all. From what I've read on this site and on NIN.com, you truly are ALL amazing people. Pablo I'm sure will be missed, but never forgotten. I will keep your family in my prayers.

I pray that you can find peace today, knowing your Pablo is finally free of all his pain. I lost my little 4yr. old daughter last October. The pain seems to never end.

Before I go I wanted to share with you this poem. It helps to describe the grief that I feel most days.

I am wearing a pair of shoes.
They are ugly shoes.
Uncomfortable shoes.
I hate my shoes.
Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.
Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.
Yet, I continue to wear them.
I get funny looks wearing these shoes.
They are looks of sympathy.
I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs.
They never talk about my shoes.
To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable.
To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them.
But, once you put them on, you can never take them off.
I now realize that I am not the only one who wears these shoes.
There are many pairs in this world.
Some people are like me and ache daily as they try and walk in them.
Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as much.
Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by before they think about how much they hurt.
No one deserves to wear these shoes.
Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger person.
These shoes have given me the strength to face anything.
They have made me who I am.
I will forever walk in the shoes of a person who has lost a child.
