Hi Gail - My name is JoAnn and I lost my son to inhalant abuse January 26, 2010. I was the one who found him. He was in the bathroom in work (we worked in the same office) and when I couldn't located him for several hours I broke the lock on the small back bathroom door. He was dead on the floor. I know what you mean. That picture, and the subsequent pictures, are burned into my brain forever.
I am so sorry Gail and I know it will take the rest of your natural life to get through losing your son. Yes, my daughter read the other book 90 MIinutes in Heaven. I loved The Shack, I read it when my brother was gravely ill in his private room. I try not to worry about tomorrow Gail. I have to force myself to go on and live the best I can bring his legacy of hope to a victory. Our relay for life team in Martinez Ca is "Jerry's Angels of Hope" and just the name strengthens my heart. I pray God to give you more comfort this day and throughout your sleep....May God give you sweet dreams of the son you lost for just a temporary time.
Dear Gail you dont here very many moms out there that say there loved one passed of perscrpition drugs. my son did it was accidental he had twins on the way and two older children. They need to do something about the so called persriction drugs they are killing our kids. they thing its okay because it is frim a docter. They are the worst drugs you can ever get. My son was 31 years old trying to do things write and his blood pressure drop so low and they didnt do anything at the hospital and they also said he had knewmonia and his white blood cells was not good and they relesed im with antibiotics and he passed two days later. The last time i seen him was on a Wendsday and he passed on Friday. My baby i miss him so i cant stand it I heart a pain that no one understands but us moms. Take care My heart is with all the moms of the Loved ones. Justins mom Pam

Hi Gail, I just found your comment, I dont know why I didnt get updated... anyway, thank you for writing, I am now going into the fourth month of my Sons accident, I still cant say the word D*&D It just feels so unnatural to say that. My Father was a San Fancisco police Officer for 35 years and then he worked in the D.A.s office as a Homicide investigator, He passed away a Year and a month before my Joey, joey had my Dads star tattooed on his chest, my Dads star number was 13, Joey was very proud of his Papa, that is what we called my Dad, Joey was the first grandson out of 13 grand children. My Dads name is Frank. Do you have any pictures you would like to share? I hold you in my heart as I do all of us parents that have lost a child.
