Thank you for visiting our fundraising page for our son, Jorani K. Pocinwong.
On October 10, 2011 we found out that our son was not going to make it. I gave birth to our son on October 11, 2011. We had a chance to hold him and say our goodbyes and tell him how much we love him. I will never forget that day. To be able to see your first-born child and hold him in your arms, but to then have to let him go forever is a painful thing.
We decided to try and do something good in our son’s name. Please help us in raising as much money as possible, so other families will have a chance to focus on the child they lost instead of the financial burden of funeral costs.
"Grief can awaken us to new values and new and deeper appreciations. Grief can cause us to reprioritize things in our lives, to recognize what’s really important and put it first. Grief can heighten our gratitude as we cease taking the gifts life bestows on us for granted. Grief can give us the wisdom of being with death. Grief can make death the companion on our left who guides us and gives us advice.
None of this growth makes the loss good and worthwhile, but it is the good that comes out of the bad.”
