I got all the Highway reports back in the mail on Monday I was going to open it and read it and it has pictures of my son.. I also found out the person that killed my son is not being charge with a crime for running over my son..Now how about that he hits and kills my son with a revoked drivers license in his company truck and he tells the State patrol he thought my son was a deer and tried to drive away and leave my son on the road. I dont understand I know it wont bring my son back but what about justices..Now I have to meet with lawyers I hate this. I miss my son so much what is going to happen I feel like Im going crazy my husband wants to hurt this guy that killed my son. He was walking home only walking home. Well I think does this person even care what he took from me my son..and I think of him laying on the road and everyone is looking at him I cant get that out of my mind. He was my only son my baby. Nothing will ever bring him back nothing when does it stop all this pain I have to drive by that spot also and it is hard so hard..I just miss you my son so much..if I could take your place I would. What do I do now what. I dont want to meet with lawyers money will fix everything they always think money will make people feel better just beings more problems I want my son that is all. And for this person that took his life to say he is sorry for what happen sorry I have to live without my son for the rest of my life. it is so hard
Hi my name is Danita Peterson Myers, I lost my son Erik Myers on 3/14/09. This was the most devasting day of my life. My husband found my son on the floor unresponsive. He kept calling him, but he never came out of it. My son was 13 years old. We still do not know the cause of death. The autopsy results are still pending. My heart is broken, and sometimes i don't know how to deal. it still seems like it is not true.
Hi, my name is Joanne. I lost my baby granddaughter 3 weeks ago today. My son called me from the hospital on that day and said "Mom, I got some real bad news for you. Jenna died last night." She was going to be 8 weeks old in just a couple days. The autopsy has not fully come back, but we think it may be SIDS. Jenna was born very healthy. The grieving I am experiencing is like nothing I have ever experienced before. She was the sunshine in my family's life. We saw her just about every day. She was thriving beautifully. The doctor had said at her physical that she was perfect. The hardest of all is watching my son and daughter-in-law trying to go on without her. They were the best parents to my baby Jenna. Does anyone have advice to help me and my family cope with this great loss?
