Food for celebrating on St. Patty’s Day

March 16, 2014
By Patty Christopher , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day. Everyone is Irish on that day. It was always a special holiday in our family. This year, it is bittersweet to think of past celebrations. Our big, handsome, strong, lovable son died of a massive heart attack on this day one year ago. It was such a shock as he seemed so healthy. He loved everything Irish and cherished his Irish heritage - the music and Irish dancing and, of course, the bagpipes. The pain is still very fresh in those who loved him and miss him so much. The bitterest grief for a mother is to have to bury a child, no matter what the age. The pain never goes away - one just has to learn to live with it and accept the tears as tears of love. So, today, dear Bill, this column is in memory of you. You will always live in our hearts and will always be a part of us, no matter where we go.
