Im so sorry for your loss Jackie, My son was 19...

As for your cell phone, take it to the phone store, they might be able to take the card out of it and get the pictures out, Im not positive but that might work. I had a phone before the one I had when my son passed and it had pictures, When I got the new phone I just donated the old one and didnt take the pictures off, Boy am I sorry now. Know that we are all here for you, you can vent and get anything you need to talk about off of your chest and we wont judge you, we are all together in this, we feel your pain and we want to help in any way that we can.

Jackie... Believe me.. I understand.  My son Presley was killed in a car accident on Dec 27th 2008.  Presley was my only child also.  He was 28 and had always lived with me.  I was only just me and him for 28 yrs.  I think one of the hardest things and I just done it was pick out the stone.  I dont know it just makes it seem so much more final.  I have paid for it but it has been hard even after this amount of time.  I have gone thru the stages of unbelief, being angry at God, myself, him and everybody else.  It has come down to this for me.  God took Presley home and one day by the grace of God I will see him again.  Still mad at times but Jackie.. God understands for he sees our hearts.  I can't say it gets easier for me that just has not happened.  I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Hi Jackie,  I've also lost some friends and family since my son's death. It's almost like they're afraid it's contagious! Right after the services, a few of them would call to ask what the autopsy results were, and I was totally honest.  He overdosed.  After they found out, I never heard from them again.  I'd call and they'd be "busy" and would promise to call back.  They never did. That loss on top of losing Tim made it too much to deal with. The only person I can really talk to is my father. If I didn't have him, I think I'd be locked away somewhere. And now, I have all these awesome people here, and it's a sigh of relief. You all "get it", you know what I'm feeling, you're not afraid of what I'm feeling.  I only wish we all could've met under different circumstances.  ***HUGS***

Thank you Jackie, you give me a lot of things to think about. I am going to make some calls today to get into counseling. Have an all day seminar to attend today and tomorrow, and hope it is better then the one yesterday. I keep telling myself something good has to come out of all of this but I guess it is too early. As for the married thing, was married 39 years but left last May. That however did not have an impact on my son taking his life, I had been living in my in-laws quarters part of my house for 14 years thinking things would change, and then I left. If that wasn't enought change in my life, this sure is. Nothing will ever be the same again! Well, I hope you have a good day, I am off to try to get through mine.

It hasn't been 3 weeks for me yet, still numb, waiting for it to really sink in I guess. Still feel like he is working late or going to call or text me. Went to work today for a seminar and had to leave the room twice because of little things setting me off. I almost fainted when a picture of a guy making like he was hanging himself with his necktie was put on the screen. I can type this but then it brings up other images and I cry. I can't believe my son took his life that way.

I have a daughter Morgan, 26. The last time we saw Justin was at her engagement party on Feb 12th, happy memories.

Hi Jackie, I am sorry for your loss. My son Justin, 28, took his life on Feb 17th, but was not found until the 21st, Monday. Saturday Feb 26th, we had a very comforting Celebration of Justin's life. Over 400 attended and so many wonderful things were said but now I just do not know how to feel. Monday Feb 28th I passed out from not taking care of myself, my sugar dropped and was rushed to the hospital for 3 days. I live alone and the mind wonders as you must know. I walked around my apartment looking for my cell phone and it was in my left hand. I walk into a room to get something and can't remember why I went into the room. So I am on this site to get help. Also looking for a one on one theropist on suicide. Sorry if I am just babbling on.

Jackie, I am so sorry for the loss of your precious son.  He is so handsome just like my Chase that past one year ago at the age of 21 years from an accidental heroin overdose.   Like all of the others say, it does not matter how they died because we can not bring them back to us.  My prayers are with you as I know you have a long road ahead.  The first year is the worst.  They say it will get better but the pain never goes away.  It's not right that we have had to lose our sons at such an early age.  May your son rest in peace now until you are reunited with him in heaven.


May Gods comfort and peace be with you and help carry you through each and every day as God has me.  Hugs being sent your way my friend.


I have a memorial website I created for Chase at www.mitchellchasejones.com

Jackie, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your son. We all on this site know what you are going through and will continue to go through as time goes on. Come as often as you need to vent and say what is on your mind or how you are feeling. Getting some of the thoughts that we think on paper or here, helps a lot. Talk often of your child, post pictures. We are there for you.

hugs and God bless you and yours

  I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my wife Kandy on 2/23/11 and we went through the loss of 2 sons together. We learned so much from each other in those trying times and I will miss her terribly but I want you to know I am here for you if you need an ear. The Spirit Carries On...

I am so sorry and if your son was on prescription meds and died I think you should report this to the FDA this is because lots of people die every year from prescription meds. Some need to be taken off the market. Even if he accidentally took a double dose he should not have died. Report this please you may save another life.

Just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you today.   God bless you today and I will be praying for you to find some peace.

Gone but not forgotten. I guess you are still in shock. It has been  since November for me. My daughter died a week before Thanksgiving. I could not celebrate and was in shock. I had trouble even wanting to eat.

So sorry.

Hello Jackie,


My heart goes out to you,, your pain is mine,, my daughter was 18, she slip in the bath tub and bump her head and drowned, she was going to collage, and she was a model and a pubished poet,, she loved to fish, beach anything out doors.


Your son is very handsome, again my heart goes out to you. God bless, Melissa

My son accidently overdosed as well.  He loved life and made everyone around him happy.  It's so sad, such a waste for a stupid mistake. He was planning to take his girlfriend for sushi that night.

Hi Jackie, I'm so sorry for the loss of your son. I lost my son last May, he was 21, also an aspiring chef and loved to be on his skateboard, wakeboard, or snowboard.  I attended a group called Grief Recovery which is a 12 week program and it has helped me a lot.  I want to give you the web site info so you can check it out, I believe there is a group that meets in Oregon. If you are interested let me know and I'll try to get you more details.  www.grief-recovery.com
