So sorry you have to go thru this. My prayers to you and your family. I havent been on in a while and just seen your invite. Our baby bpys are safe from all harm now, arent they? But I still havent figured out how I am suppose to find peace with it. I miss him so much. We were very close and no one understood him like I did nor did anyone understand me like he did. This website has been a great comfort to me. Sometimes I just come and read and sometimes I will comment. Since my son died from drugs he willingly took, I havent gotten many friend requests. :( He was actively fighting the Disease of Addiction. The disease didnt win the battle though because Rocky was a Christian and he is in beautiful heaven and no longer has to be in any physical or mental pain. I am so sorry about your loss. Had the guy Rocky was with not waited 10 hours to get 911, Rocky would have lived. I seen that guys posts on Facebook recently on the one year date after losing Rocky. He was gloating about having been to court that day (for what he didnt say) and it got continued. He should have been charged with involuntary manslaughter for not getting help. We tryed to get something done but never was able to. That guy gave my son the drug that killed him. Anyway, sorry for carrying on so much. Sorry we have to meet under such whatever you want to call this...again thx for the invite!
Peggy, horrendous how some people are, that call themselves human beings. I was right there on that bank of snow with you and your stabbed boy. That's why Bernie wanted to get away from the big city, and come to a much more peaceful place like this Island. He hated violence and war. Once a year he would say, 'I've got to go!', and would leave me and hitchhike 3000 miles to Victoria with Lady. He tried for years to get me to come, God bless him, but I was busy, and in the back of my mind worrying about earning a living in a smaller place. I wish I had come earlier, but he, me and the dogs did have two good years in the house and garden here. He was so proud of everything. Then his stupid blood infection (that we didn't know about) gave him the brain swelling which took him away. My prayers for his safety on the other side tell me that I have handed him over to the Good Lord. I feel more peaceful.
I trust that he and your Justin will talk about us, and stay safe until we get there. Remember, God loves them more than we do. David.
Sorry to hear about Justin. God gives and He takes away. Violence makes it harder, but they say He only takes the best. We have to do the long road, but when we meet again it will be forever. I so miss Bernie. He always knew what to do. He must be doing some landscaping up there.
I too lost my son in 2009. Christmas day will be his 3 year Angel date. Sorry you are in our group but know it is a good one to be in for advice when you are struggling. We all share what we can to help.
