hi angela how r u doing , it will be 2 months on friday since mikeys death, seems like forever seems likes yesterday, they wouldnt let me see mikey either, i had hernia surgery the day before, it was really cold that nite and even thou the accident happened 100 feet from our home they said it would be bettter if i stayed in, i also wonder what were his last words or thoughts, my husband usually rode with him and was always in front , could this have been prevented, would it be easier to mourn my husband instead of my son, so many thoughts, we asked people to send donations instead of flowers to mikeys 16 month old daughters trust fund i am overwhelmed with the response we r dairy farmers and our local club has been amazing, 2 weeks later when mikeys grandfather died, he just could not get over the loss of his pride and joy, we established a scholarship fund with the school and our local FFA chapter in mikey and harolds name all of these things help, his daughter lives with us she helps as well but nothing really helps ease the pain, u just keep breathing cause u have to, hope u r doing ok emily
Thank you Mr. Jeffrey Ferradino, I am thankful for your kindness as well. I will keep watching for you here and I am checking out your friend's web memorial.
To do: Type a form letter about your goals for Justin, then include a contribution amount and decide who will receive his donations (based on criteria) and also contact local colleges/universities for more help and advice, then be persistant.
Right on? Right on is what my guy would say and he always loved the "old heads" (is that alright to submit online?) Yeah so again thank you.
Oh Angela, you do know exactly what I'm going through, as I do you. I just can't focus, at all, on anything. I loved Justin so much, and it just makes no sense to me. Will it ever? I don't know. I did create a memorial site for him, here's the link: http://memorialwebsites.legacy.com/justinavery/Homepage.aspx, and I hope you will go visit it. It would make me smile and smiles are so hard to come by right now. Angela, I do believe in God, but I'm very upset with him right now, because I just don't understand. And I'm so, so sorry about Christopher. I know exactly how you're feeling and my heart goes out to you. Justin was a great artist, drawing and sketching some of the most beautiful portraits I've ever had the pleasure of seeing, so I think I will also try and start a memorial fund for the arts, in Justin's name. Any Ideas on how I can accomplish this? Thank you do much Angela, for your kind words. I truly think, speaking to real people who have went through a similar experience, helps the soul, and the grieving process. Thanks again, and God Bless.
Tami, thank you so much. All of this is so new to me I do not know if I am coming or going much of the time. For the memorial I hope others will learn about what their loved ones found to be so exciting in their lives. Also it is never to late to start something new.
I also have an older son, one year older and a younger daughter 2 years younger who also went hunting and fishing with him; I have not yet discussed this tribute with them and I hope they will come around to me. Right now there is much disbelief, division, grief and anger that they are not sharing with me. They will eventually need me in their own time, I will wait.
I love all of my people and all people, I would do anything to be included in my children s' lives. I hope this will spark some interest in others. Well God be with all of you and I hope to continue to receive the support that this site is helping me with. God Bless you all and thank you,
Another thought is that even if our children are not saved through a service does not in any way mean that they will not go to heaven as one of God's supporters; since it is through Jesus that "whosoever believes in me shall have everlasting life." and what my friend Lisa Sabia stated in her comment about John 11:24. Thank you all for your support. I think that you have helped me already.
To Lisa, Evan's mom, and Emily, Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I never even knew that other's would be grieving for the exact reasons that i am grieving by losing a child (son) in a snowmobile accident. I also kept wondering what his last thoughts were and how he must of thought oh no. It haunts me and then we were not allowed to identify or see him, so his funeral was just of his remains and flowers and a memorial fund. He will be so missed he was one of the best. He had been saved January 14, 2007 and I believe that I will see him again in heaven. Although at 23 going on 24 life was immortal to him and probably to anyone at those younger years.
I had seen my doctor yesterday and she suggested that i start a memorial in something to do with hunting and fishing for his honor. I am going to speak to some of my friends and his and then write and send a form letter to mail out asking for money and support in this cause all in his name. He Loved to hunt and fish, he was a carpenter and a farmer too. He liked to do anything with nature and to be as self sufficient as he could possibly be. So we are from NW Pennsylvania. I am so thankful for all of your comments and if I can be of help to you please let me know. Angela....
I am so sorry for your loss. I too lost my 24 year old son, Mario, Dec. 22, 2007 in a snowmobile accident. He was on a trail in a snowmobile park, next to the trail was a gate that had been locked and not marked properly. He never saw it. He died instantly of the same injury emily's son suffered, a torn aorta. There was nothing they could do. My life changed in an instant. Find your Faith and hang onto Jesus with everything you can. When your weak, He will be your strength. Take it one day at a time, one minute at a time. You are not alone on this journey, He is with you. Hang on to Hope, your son's face is in your future Angela. John 11:24 Jesus said to her " I am the Resurrection and the Life. He who believes in me shall live, even though he dies. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. If you ever need to talk, I'm here for you.
Mario and Christopher are "Safe In The Arms Of Jesus"
my son died on a snowmobile on dec 12, it happened about 100feet from our home all i can think about r what were his last thoughts , it drive me crazy, he had a ruptured aorta so even if someone had been with him it wouldnt have mattered , his 16 month old daughter and gf are now living with us, my life is not my life anymore, i feel such loss and deperation , where do u live?
