How do I say goodbye, mother cries

UPDATE:

“I DON’T know how to tell my son goodbye. He was my everything.” These were the words of Natasha Granger, mother of five-year-old Pawaan Granger, who died on Sunday when six concrete blocks fell on him in the yard of his home. Pawaan suffered massive cerebral trauma, which caused his death within minutes.

His funeral is expected to be held at his family’s Fyzabad home on Friday, after which he will be cremated at the Mosquito Creek, La Romaine. His mother yesterday said she could not believe her son was now gone forever. The grieving Granger told Newsday she does not know how to cope and her life will never be the same.

“I see his picture and I cannot stop crying. It hurts so much to know he is gone forever. I would not be able to hug and kiss him. November he would have been six years. I would get to tell him ‘Happy birthday’ again. “I am really trying to cope. I don’t know if I can tell him goodbye,”the tearful mother said.

Granger said she wishes it was a dream and she could awake and see Pawaan at her side. “But no matter what I do or say he is not going to come back and all I have now are memories.” Last Sunday morning at about 9am Pawaan was picking tulsi leaves to eat outside the house at Coolman Trace when part of a concrete wall fell on him.

The family said there are other walls around the house that they knew were not stable and usually warned the children away , but this one caught them off guard.

When Natasha and her husband Mikhail Granger found the child’s body, Mikhail put the child on his back and ran to the nearby Fyzabad Health Centre. But doctors there could not resuscitate Pawaan.
