He became an angel September 24, 2010. He had just turned 24 August 8. He was on his way to work on his motorcycle. He had just bought it 2 months prior and was so proud of it and so very cautious. The accident involved a big rig. That is all we know. We decided that it was better not to know what exactly happened because it would cause us more pain and not bring him back. They said he did not suffer and for that we are thankful. He and his girlfriend live with my husband and I and they were saving to get their own place. He was a good young man and was not into any trouble. He went to work and came home and hung out with his friends…that is all. I can’t understand why this had to happen to HIM????? I know that he is in a better place than all of us and he isn’t hurting like we are. Untill we meet again, my angel

Our Beloved Sons and Daughters are now Angels
They moved to Heaven Above...
We mothers and fathers are devastated, lost...
without our precious children here to love!
Even though this sadness is more deep than we ever knew before,
We must all go on with life until we too reach Heaven's door!
Nothing will ever replace them, we have all cried oceans of tears!
One thing I can tell you, it won't get easier through the years!
When you loose someone special, that you loved more than life,
The loss is so immeasurable, there will always be heartache and strife!
Grief is a never ending cycle, with waves that come and go,
for death and sorrow do come to everyone and this we all should know!
You really know who your friends are when tragedy does befall.
Some seem to turn their backs with insensitive remarks to us,
While others do not even bother to call!
Religion can be comforting but should be taken with a grain of salt!
No one truly has all the answers, and to think so is a fault!
True comfort can only be found within, so that is where we must begin!
Look inside and you may find, the peace to ease your tortured mind!
by Shari   Love, Peace, Prayers to all my precious friends!

Thank you so much for your post Anita.     Your son had such a great smile.  I hope I am able to do something like you have for your son's honor sometime in the near future.  I am not able to do much of nothing at this time but maybe it will get better soon.

I just watched your video and cried all the way thru it. It was so very similar to my son's in which was played at his funeral.Davey seemed so very full of life and always with that same smile on his face. He looks like he enjoyed so many things be proud he looks like a great kid! I feel your pain and I am so very sorry.......

Big Hugs

I can relate to your pain.   My son was trying to get home Christmas Eve night, he had worked that evening and it was raining and so cold he ran off the road, we don't know if he slid on ice or what happened.   He got stuck and decided to walk for help.   The door he came to was an unfriendly person and would not let him in out of the cold.   He kept walking and got over come with the cold.   He was found in a drainage ditch about 2 miles from his car.   God bless you.

Hello Anita. Thank you for kind note. You are the first person to contact me, which means a lot to me.  I find that "text messages" and "voice messages" when I am not able to make my self speak to anyone help me. My best friend, my Aunt, and my sister, have continued to call, and send hand writen which notes are special week after week. Are you receiving any kind of support? This is the time to speak up and tell those who are special in your life what you need in terms of love and support. Why, why, why, have been the words which I think, or say all the time. What if, what if, what if. I am not able to pray, but God is hearing my thoughts. Others are doing the praying. I am sadden to read about your Davey. How your heart must hurt. A physical hurt with real pain. I am here for you. Take care of yourself. Be kind to yourself. Debra

Davey was a very handsome boy. I know the pain you have. My beautiful daughter became an angel at the young sweet age of 22. She was already a mother to a 3 year old and pregnant with her second child. The pain never goes away, it just becomes easier. I pray for you at this time, the hardest time. I will think of sweet Davey. God bless you and your new angel, Love Diane (Shelly's Mom)

Your Davey is such a handsome young man...so very sorry for your loss and heartache.  We share this inexplicabled anguish, although my sweet son died 5 years ago, I still ache and miss him so very much.  Until the dawn of eternity it will be so.  Thinking of you, praying...Sharon, Nickolas's mom.

Dear Anita....I just read your page and sorry for the loss of your young handsome son.  I am right there with you on the WHY???   I think we will have that question forever. 

Your family tradedy is so new (just being in September 2010) so I know the deep feelings of grief that you have at this time.  We just had Donny's Angel Birthday on Christmas Day.  In some ways that is a terrible day but in other ways, our family is always together and it is a busy day so we all helped each other get through that day.  We toasted to Donny at the dinner table, so that was very sad for a Mom.  No easy way to go through this journey.

I too had to stop reading the posts on the main website for awhile, somehow it took a bad turn for too much saddness and people were scaring me with their desperation.  Thank goodess it is back on a more positive, helpful wave for all of us to feel comfort from.  I do feel for all the people who are having such a hard time and I hope they can find some support groups or helpful Dr.s.   

My thoughts are with you  and your family.   Once again, I am sorry for your family's loss.

Susan    Donny's Mom
