For many who lose a loved one over the course of a year, the Christmas and New Year’s holidays are among the toughest times to deal with grief.
This past Christmas, Noah Moore handled it his way.
Noah and Jen Moore lost their only child, Peyton, a bright, energetic, creative, athletic and humorous child with so much promise, on June 4. The 9-year-old, who had been diagnosed with benign rolandic epilepsy six months prior, died after he suffered a likely seizure in his sleep.
Every day since then, the Moores admit that they continue to hurt.
“I try to be grateful for the nearly 10 years that we had this incredible boy,” said Jen, “but it’s hard not to be angry.”
