Hello Trish - I am JoAnn and I lost my only child and best friend Tyler at age 24 on 01/26/10. Two years have just passed and I cannot believe I actually lived through them. I have no idea what the future holds for me, but I is a good thing to hear from someone farther out on this journey. Most of us here are in the newer stages of loss. Tell us about your journey, good or bad. It's what some of us need to hear to prepare for the years ahead. I know your loss is still as deep as ours and alway will be. I don't expect that to get any better. But knowing the different pitfalls and little victories that might be waiting for us as time goes on is a very helpful thing. I am so sorry that you needed to come to this sight, it means that you have suffered the greatest loss of all. But you have come to a place of friendship and solidarity where our purpose is to help one another as well as ourselves.
