THE BEGINNING OF THE END
written By L.L.P.F.



The Beginning of the End, When you Greive and cannot cry.
And you search your soul with-in,
To find the words to say good-bye.

The hardest part of losing you,
Is, "how to set you free"?
Your prism with-in my spirit
That's still so much a part of me.

I feel, I feel so much your real
And though I can not see
Twas the beginning of the end I feel
Was the hardest part for me

This is a picture of my son Jordan. One week before he died, he went camping with his Dad and he built this fire. He took this picture himself. Beautiful, isn't he!



In the silence of you slumber,

theres a lowlit burning fuse.

Youre journey now is over,

and you've paid your final dues.

Your sun will now be setting,

from a view I cannot see.

A prism of crystel colors,

that plays a beautiful… Continue

So good to know we all grieve differently, and at different speeds, but it is good having people who listen. So many family and friends are afraid to help. David.

Just want to say a Happy Birthday to beautiful/hansome Jordan. You are in my prayers today.

Anything you are feeling Leslie...is right. Always remember that. There are no rules in this unfortunate game of life those of us here are in. I guess we all sort of make them up as we go along...and we definately all learn from each other. Sometimes you take the lead, sometimes I do. It never ceases to amaze me how connected I feel to you and several other here as we have never met. Just goes to show you how our children, our hearts and most important God brings us together.

You are in my prayer dear friend....and yes I do understand .

God Be With You,

Gerry

p.s. one last thought. Our son's journey's are not over..they have just begun.

Leslie,

Sorry it took so long to respond. Believe me when I say, I may seem good..but I am not good everyday. Did you ever go through a time of denial. There are days I just go about life like this did not happen and my son is still alive. Hard for me to put into words exactly what I mean. When I go to bed at night the reality sets in as the last thing I do before I fall asleep is pray for him.

Don't give me more credit than I deserve.

Right now I am up and down...it is a long story why. Let's just say, life isn't fair.

God and my son watch over me and  Ric knows I love him, that is all that counts. Hard to believe his 2nd Angel Day is less than a month away.

God be with you,

Gerry

Dear Leslie,

I am glad my message got through.

Like you, I was alone when Ric was killed. His dad and I divorced years ago. It is horrible going through losing your child without the support of his father. Strange  and sad,how two people can share a life,create a life and can't support each other during the most horrible experience in their lives.

Like you said..this site, and especially you and several others gave me the support I needed. Otherwise I would have had a breakdown. Of course God was there every step of the way...and I believe he lead me here.

Four years since Jordan left this earth..and here you are still helping others.

I am having a really rough time time this week and appreciate your caring even more than ever.

My son was all about forgiveness and I know that he wants me to forgive the man who killed him,but as I stated in my Victims Impact Statement...I am not there yet.

I need your prayers and am thankful for them.

As Always,

God Be With You,

Gerry

Dear Gerry...

   I'm thankful for your prayers, God Bless You! It took 22 months for them to give him 10 years? I am sorry. I understand what you mean by "anti clamatic".  I would be shocked, as I guess you are. At least he is behind bars. That is a plus. As far as it getting better...it wouldn't matter if he would've recieved the death penelty; It doesn't fill that hole. It seemed to me; {now 4 years later}, that the hole that was burning inside me just kept getting bigger...deeper. I don't know if you are with your sons father, or married { I cant remember, forgive me}...but I went through this alone. At least until I found this site, and all of you. And God has been here for me, even when I didn't feel like praying.  I know the prayers of my special friends from this site helped/helps me get through. This is so hard Gerry...and you at 22 months...I wouldn't want to be back there. I am trying to say some encouraging words, and there just aren't any. You will be in my prayers and in my thoughts. That man that did this to your son has no idea what he has done. How many lives he has affected. This is so sad...just remember, I am grieving with you.    Love Leslie

Hello my Friend,

It has been awhile .

I do have news about Ric's case and wanted to share with you and a few others on this site. You were the ones to keep me all together and gave me the emotional support I need.

A plea deal was accepted by the man who killed my son. He was offered 15 in prison and 10 probation..or 10 in prison and 15 probation. He accepted the later of the two. Not much of a surprise. It was noted that if he crosses the street wrong, while on probation...he will serve term.

I had mixed feelings about this sentence until I heard back yesterday from Judy (she is on Legacy). Her sons "juror trial" was a disaster with one juror holding out for nothing,and called a mistrial. So in that respect we were lucky not to go through this.

Sentencing is July 28th. I am torn about going or not. Don't know if I will be able to face this man. I will write a Victims Statement,but am finding out that some states/judges only allow one. I have always been at a disadvange with the proceedings as I live in NY and this is all happening in FL.

I feel so empty right now..even more so than before. During the past 22 months my main focus was justice for my son and putting this part to rest, now that this is happening it all seems so anti clamatic. Somewhere in my heart I think I believed it would fill some of the hole left there from losing Ric..or take away some of the pain. It has not. If anything it has caused more stress.

Leslie,I hope you are doing well..you were one of the first friends I met here.

I know Jordan and Ric know each other know and are smiling down on their moms.

Please keep in touch.

God be with you,

Gerry
