I'm praying hard you and, throughout this difficult time, may you also know the deep sympathy and concern that is felt for you and all your family The Bible assures us: “God is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalm 34:18) May you find comfort in the memories that are yours to cherish always
I am very sorry for the loss of your son. I can imagine how you feel. My beautiful 21 year old son was shot on November 21, 2009. I feel worse every day, what's worse, is I have no family and he was my only son, I have no other children. I feel like my life is over, I'm just breathing is all. I get up, go to work, come home, drink, go to sleep. Weekends I mostly sleep and drink. I don't know what else to do, I would like to go with my son but I don't have the guts to do it, so drinking myself to death seems like the only option. Stay strong, you have something to live for.
Hi, I was reading your comment and just had to reply. On May 7, 2004, my 18 year old son Andrew, "Drew' as we called him, was out with friends. He was approached by two animals who thought he was someone else. They told him to give up his stuff, but all he had on him was 2 dollars. That wasn't enough so they shot him 13 times. He was rushed to the hospital where he died. My whole world has been devastated. I will never be the same person I once was. There was a trial and the animals were found guilty and will never again harm another person, but that still doesn't bring my Drew back to me. I will mourn him till I join him. The craziest thing is that 8 years before Drew was murdered, my 17 year old son Vinnie died tragically and unexpectedly on January 28, 1996. He was my firstborn and my everything. Now I grieve for two beautiful boys who were taken before they really had a chance to live. I am so sorry for your loss and if you ever want to talk, please let me know. I live in Philadelphia and can give you my number if you would like. If not, I understand as well. Sometimes it is just enough to make it through the day. I wish you peace and strength in the sad times ahead. Kathy (Vinnie & Drew's mom)
