Thank you for the kind words on my blog, My children are my life. My world will never be the same without my two precious sons but in their honor and memory I will hold my head up and smile, for I have 6 other children that I am just as proud of and love just as much and they need me. It breaks my heart that I cannot kiss their pain away, I can just hold them and cry with them and together we will move forward. God bless and hugs your way!!!!

Hi Lisa thanks for writing. We miss our beautiful sons. for sure. I can't stop thinking about that tragic day and what i could ahve done to prevent it. i am sure you do the same thing. i am having a hard time thinking about anything else. i have other children like you. they seem to be doing ok ... My life is at a standstill due to marriage problems which I feel participated in me not knowing or denying what was going on with him. we make some stupid mistakes in life and this is the bigget for me. He will be remembered and greatly missed until we are done here. love to you carrie L

to my friend lisa,

yes , i also believe we are sentenced to hell. when we have just one child, that child becomes our everything. dustys father was never there for him, never wanted to be and was busy running around on me.  (long story shortened) so, dusty and i were alone together alot. i appreciate you responding as we are on the same time frame with our losses.

i will tell you more about my son soon, i just go day to day, with hardly any support, no friends.. but,  since i have connected to a great church, i cant say everything is better, but i know that God is the only person i can trust and the more i pray, the better.  love,   valerie

dear lisa,  it is also 17 months that i lost my precious only child, dusty. i know that i AM INSANE.  i believe,  that i will be insane for the most part for the rest of my life.   when we lose our children, its a hell sentence for us forever. your son was very handsome, i am so sorry for your loss.  i know exactly how you feel as a mom that lost her only child. 17 months ago.

prayers and hugs,  valerie

Hi Lisa I was reading how you had gotten a chance to get horses. I have them also though I am not near them now. going through a divorce. which makes it much harder. I have regrets about my horses how if I had spent that money on trips my memories would be much fuller. Morgan loved to travel to california... as where his ashes will be when they are spread. I overlooked a lot of things.. your photos of chad are beautiful. your love for him is immense... I surely love my son and wish i had one more day one more hour one minute would work. hope your christmas is good and your new years as we all have this tearfilled journey ahead of us.. All our nice young men they would have had a blast together wouldn't they?? yes... carrie L

Sorry that you are feeling down....sure know when that hits....not a thing we can do about it but work through it.  And I too thought because my family were good people, did good things for people, etc  etc that we were exempt from any more tragedies.....like you said, how foolish.

Wish I could give you a real hug but not possible.....take care and in 3 weeks all this holiday business is over and we can go back to somewhat of normal... Hugs to you today.....sorry you are sad.

Thank you for the messages Lisa. I too am very sorry for the loss of your son Chad. Quite a handsome young man. Beautiful kids all of them.
Unfortunately much of that day remains a mystery with varying accounts of what actually happened. Cait adored horses and had been riding for 10 years. The horse she rode the day she died was a very large horse and from what I am told she was petrified of him. He was 17 1/2 hands, new to farm and not quite broken. The girls she rode with on her drill team, all wonder why she was told to ride him. Her usual horse was there and available. Oh how I wish I had not stopped to answer the phone in my office that day and had been there. No 1 story on how she came off. But all agree the fall was not remarkably hard. Her head was the last thing to hit the ground and it was without much force. The ring was dragged, clear of any debris and he did not kick her. My baby died of multiple basal skull fractures. She never knew what hit her. There was a mom who performed CPR and she was taken to a local hospital then airlifted to a Trauma center. They gave me the option of surgery but when I pressed the surgeon if she would do it if it was her child, she told me no because Cait would have no quality of life if she actually made it through the surgery. To keep her on life support would have been purely selfish. So we let her go. It was another 12 hours or so before they would declare her gone and turn off life support. This also gave time for them to round up the organ donation team. She was wearing a helmet and that is being investigated. It split up the back and appears may have caused the fractures. But that is a fight for the court system sadly enough. I tried to get the President of the helmet company to pull the helmet and investigate, he would not. So we'll do what we need to do to make him. To really think of it all is a place hard to go. I seem to keep it all at arms length. Any closer chokes me. She was so beautiful.

Hi Lisa,
I looked at Chad's memorial site and he trully was a handsome, talented young man. I am trully sorry for your loss. My favorite picture is the one of him on the cover of Homerun magazine.
I have another little girl and she has already given me more than a few "whew" moments. I know that my Mom had no malice that day with Sophia. I just wish she would have watched her a little more closely. I am sure we all would love to have watched our children more closely on the day of their deaths. I guess that is what hindsight is all about. I do miss my Mom alot. We used to hang out alot. You know, lunch, shopping, ect. The first thing she said to my brother after Sophia died is "we will not be friends anymore" and she was right. Maybe in the future but I have a hard time most days, just thinking about her. My Mom, I mean. I want her to feel as horrible as I do. Maybe she does. When I see her she seems to be more than okay. That is what drives me crazy. I just found out my sister is expecting and I am furious because I know her child will be so well taken care of now that everyone is on high alert. Not that I wish anything but the best for my family....But why did this have to happen to my Sophia? My heart. My heart...Sigh. I just miss her so much it hurts me to my core.

Thank you for your support. It means the world to me.

This is my perfect baby girl.

Lisa, thank you for writing. I watched the video and cried. My Grant loved sports too and played football since he was 5. I miss him so much and just can not imagine our life without him. I wish I could get pictures on here, but I must not be doing something right. Thanks again Nadine

Lisa, Your website is really nice. Chad would be so proud. My son also died in a car accident, his was his body, his face was perfect!! I still remember holding him in the hospital and loving on him and kissing his face! When I look back now I have no idea how I did anything for months, but of course as mothers we just do what we have to do. I am also starting a scholorship in my sons name. James David Birk. We are going to give money to kids in college that need a new computer or book money. I feel I have to do something in his name. He was a unique man and I don't want anyone to forget about him. His friends still come over and see us and still go to his marker at the cemetary. I hope with time all of us with this enormous grief can catch a little break. Before this happened to James I did not know there was all this grief in the world. Our kids are leaving us at a rate that is unbelievable. Please let me know how your golf tournament went. Keep me posted. Thank you, Linda

Just wondering if you have gotten any signs that Chad is OK.? As my head and grief have cleared somewhat with time, I am getting a few messages from Adam. Hope you are too.

Lisa, Thanks for writing. My heart goes out to you and your family as the 1 yr mark approaches for u. I am close to that mark as well and I already am anxious about it. I hope you are surrounded by light and love the next few days to get u thru.
The website you set up for Chad is incredible. Very nicely done. He must have been a wonderful young man.

Hi Lisa,
I am sorry...I have not been on here in forever. I have thought of you and Chad often though and I hope you are doing okay. I will try to come on here more often again so that we can chat. Take care and I WILL be in touch soon.

Lisa: I read your post to Melissa and your kind words to her. But see that your Chad's birthday and the one year of his passing are coming soon. I'm sorry for all of your pain. My daughter passed 4 months before her 17th birthday. That day was hard and heartbreaking, just like everyday since she died has been. But we tried to turn it around. The day was spent sad and grieving with her friends. But that evening I was determined to celebrate her life. So we did what she did every year since she was very young. Go-carting. We got together and went go-carting and then out to eat. It was wonderful and helped me, her friends and my younger daughter so much. August 4th would have been my Caitlin's 19th birthday. We went go-carting again with her friends and then out to eat. I know you are still numb and smiles seem far away. But celebrating her birthday seems ok and makes the day bearable. I will pray for you and think about you and your family these next few weeks. Stand strong. Sadly enough there are lots of people here ready to listen.
