It's a Wonderful World
Amazing Grace (bagpipes, nature scenes)
Steven was a wonderful son but he was diagnosed with depression most of his short life. Finally the end of 2009, we found out he had Asperger's Syndrome. Asperger's Syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction, along with restricted and repetitive pattern of behavior and interests. It's hard to detect this condition and hard to treat.
Steven just could not cope with this and ended his own life. This condition is now showing up in a lot of people and hopefully the earlier you can detect this, the better. It was too late for Steven.
Steven and his pop-pop were buddies the day my son was born. His pop-pop taught him all about nature and the love of wild life even before Steven can walk. By the age of three, Steven knew all the names of trees, plants, animals, insects, etc. Those two were inseparable. When Steven had his mood swings, my dad was the only one who could calm him down. My dad, Ray, died on Steven's 21st birthday and that's the day my son's spirit broke. Steven lost his only buddy in the world. He decided to join his pop-pop and is buried right next to him.
"A wife who loses a husband is called a widow. A husband who loses a wife is called a widower. A child who loses his parents is called an orphan. But...there is no word for a parent who loses a child, that's how awful the loss is!"

Ralph and Anna Livingston and the great-nephew of Lewis Livingston (baby)

Andrew Mitchell and Janie Mitchell Young and the great step-grandson of Craven Young and the great-nephew of Leonard and Albert Mitchell
