Hi Nancy, My name is Ronda Johnston and I was just reading some of the blogs these parents have posted & I just read what you wrote about your son, Let me just start off first & tell u how sorry Iam to hear about your son, I also lost my 1 & only son my first born he was 25 his name is Sean, He passed June 14th 2010 the worst day of my life!!!!! If you get my message please I would love to hear back from you, would like to get to know you & your son.... God Bless You, Ronda
Nancy - i Am so sorry for you - it seems so unreal to have that happen at such a young age - we have friends who lost their 17 year old daughter at a school track meet - they did not carry a defibulator with them to meets!
On November 7th it was 5 months since Christian passed and it is still as new as yesterday.
We celebrated his 26th Birthday with a balloon release with messages in each balloon at one of his favorite places 'The Point' a beautiful location here in Kansas City that overlooks the entire city lights.
Were now gearing up for the 'Survival Event' that our family takes part in and has for years, it is a Homeless Event that we do twice a year in the Kansas City area and generally feed and clothe anywhere from 4000-6000 local homeless to low income families.
This was something Christian so enjoyed doing and looked forward to doing.
But on November 27th at our next event
C.O.P.P.S 'Care of Poor People' will be Honoring my young son,
Christian W. Baker for his years of dedication and devotion to the less fortunate of this great city.
I know when the kids and I see the posters and the people and have to deal with the media its going the hardest thing since his death.
Were just not sure how were going to get through it without him
I lost my 24 year old son Tyler on January 26th. he would have turned 25 on September 19th. I know exactly how you feel. He was my only child. I can't breathe, I don't know how I make it from day to day. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Dear Nancy....my tears mingle with yours as we walk this heartache trail. It is so sur-real to walk where we have to now. Life will never be the same...how can it be. they change us when they come into our lives and hearts...and again when they are taken from us. The imprint that they leave behind on us will always be...unique, beautiful. You are so very new in your grieve of your precious Christian....I remember thoes first days, weeks,... years. it has been 5 years for me with the loss of my 17 year old son Nickolas. Most days now I can breathe with relaitive ease...then there are thoes days that I grieve as if it were this very day that I heard thoes words..."Nickolas is gone" write if you like...i would love to hear from you. Sharon...Nickolas's mom
dear Nancy, i am so sorry to hear the pain in your messarge and wish there was a way to comfort you as we are going through it as well and understand how devastating something like this is. Things just dont go on like before and never will so i hope noone is telling you that they should. Our worlds will forevermore have the enornous "hole" in them and for us it has been alnost a year but seems like a month because the pain is still so fresh. i wish there was some way i could reach out and take your heartache away. I hope you have a support system around you--family and friends and someone you can call day or night no matter what the time so you do not feel so alone. i am so sorry for the loss of your dear son Christian and i pray you will find what you need to see you through,,,,,,,,, gina
