If anyone would get this it would be you all on Share. Got some medical insurance papers in the mail that we need to fill out and send back in to update information. It list all the members of our family. and I mean all of us. It list Scott as well. It's nice seeing his name on a paper. It's nice seeing him acknowledged as a family member. I know it means extra work for me to call and try to get a human voice and inform them for the hundredth time that my son is deceased but I still liked seeing his name. I frankly I wish I could just not say anything and just let these forms come every year listing his name as part of our family.
I do totally get this. I have my 2008 tax return saved to my desktop because I like to remind myself that I'm not crazy and my daughter really did exist. It broke my heart when they refused to issue her a social security number because her birth certificate said deceased next to her name. Seeing Scott's name on paper is more important than many people will ever understand, I get it.
I get it too. Josie's SSN card is in her memory box; her birth certificate is in her scrap book. I look at it every time and stare at her name, helps me remember she was here and I was her mom.

I get this. Its huge when our children that are gone are acknowledged. HUGS!
I have spent many years doing the same thing! In fact, for several years after the girls were born, we would still get an insurance card for Taylor. I suppose they were thinking that we might need it for claims that were still coming in for her care, but seriously-- Scott is definitely part of your family forever and ever and seeing that name where is belongs makes a momma smile!!
I agree! I love ANY form of acknowledgement about Sean! Thinking of you!
