January 23/10 Saddest day of my life.

The 23rd of January started out great. My DH went to Dawson Creek, BC giving me time to do things I wanted to do for sometime. I took pictures and uploaded them to my blog. Worked in my house and got things done that I was putting off for sometime. DH got home around 6:30pm, and sat down to relax for the evening. I went into my scrapbooking room to work on the Stardust Workshop layout.

Around 7:30 pm there was a knock on our door. I opened the door to a policeman with two ladies standing there. The policeman asked me if I was CH, I said yes I was. He then proceeded to tell me our son had died earlier that morning. My Christopher had died of a sudden heart attack, in his apartment. He was all alone. He would be 36 this August 4th.

Needless to say the past 3 months have been indescribable.

I was not going to do the 10 introductory Studio J layouts but decided I would. I ended up doing 14 layouts for an album of Christopher. The layouts have arrived but I still have to put embellishments on them. Since my order arrived I have 20 more layouts ready for ordering. 10 are of Christopher and 10 are of my Grandchildren. When my dear Dad died I found that scrapbooking and fixing up photos of him really help me with the grieving process. Scrapbooking Christopher's photos have help me through my grieving of him. I miss him and think of him constantly.

These are the first and last photos taken of Christopher.
His Dad took the first one (baby)and his Grandma took the last one. In the last one Christopher was just going to work.
