I lost my son Adam c Rowett on jan 11th 2008 at age 18 he had just graduated and was working at the local ski resort I had so many Idea's and so many thing's I wanted to teach Adam and here all most three years later and yes like you put in your post its just like yesterday .someone else wrote the world stopped I got off and the rest kept going without me . I know many such thoughts and to a point I understand . he was a special kid allways had kind words for everyone when you saw adam he would greet you with a great big smile and a bigger hug everyone just took to adam in our family and all his friends at his funeral i think the whole High school was there and a few grades past I saw suchan out pouring of love from our town I still can not find the words to say what I feel for all of them unconditional is the best word I can find for Adam and I think that for some reason that seems to go with all Adam's . but because he couldn't handle the hormones of being a teen in an extra large body 6'3" and still growing he went to the Family Dr, and asked for help that's where his problem started the Dr gave Him medications for an adult not a teen and then gave him even more and more it wasn't working in many ways it was makeing him much worse by this point Adam was out of control I had to call the police asking for help But Paulette I,m here today to help you and now that I told you my story you know I truely understand just a little bit of what you and every other mother and father and brother and sister and family member are suffering and feeling
But I have something to tell all of you and I hope you doent mind i,m not a heavy duty christen i do church on a few holidays at best as a young man I grew up in a very bad enviroment.Isaw things most people wouldn,t want to know and I bring you one thing to help you as it is the only thing that has helped me we had a mother- daughter Home when I was young my grandfather was a longshoreman on the docks in NY city he worked with hoffa and I still have all the documents from him .you doen't work the ny city docks with jimy hoffa back then without being one of the hardest working men around so now we have that sed and done after my grandfather retired he moved in to our downstairs appartment watched the ballgames went to church on sunday and was as sane as most of us in the summer of 1976 might have been I,m not as sharp as he was he approched me and my Mother upstairs in the kitchen and he was as happy as I have ever seen him and he didn't crack a smile for nobody he bent down to eye level and told me remember what I tell you your going to need it clear. I was like ok clear, He then hugged my mother and told her that it was time for him to leave perplexed my mom sed what are you talking about its not sunday as he allways went to sunday mass. catholic's ??
No he sed God is downstairs in the apartment he has been there all morning watching the game with me and talking and just haveing fun I love you he sed to her and again remember what I told you and he ran back down the two flights of stairs and into the apartment
perplexed my mother looked at me and sed he's loseing it he's going mad but she just had to see for herself she sed to me wait right here and she went down to talk to him again all I herd was a blood curtaling screem from my mom I hit the phone and was calling the cops in seconds like I sed its practicly on speed dial at that time cops show up my mom found my grandfathers body dead in his bathroom he had gotten up sometime early in the morning and had a massive hart attack. the drs and ambulanse guys sed that he was allready in full rigamortis this was 15 or twenty minutes past when me and mom talked to him and hugged him you can think anything you want to.but it is true Adam died jan11th 2008 and I know he is with my grandfather dad and the rest of the family so just as I feel the deepest pain and sadness of the loss of my only son. and I screamed and yelled at god for weeks. I know in my hart that this is why my grandfather clarence milton cole Told me this and managed to demand I remember it so even though we are in hell right now. know that someone somehow wanted us to know even if it doesn,t change one thing thats all I can do for you and i can only hope that it helps just a little bit
