nothing is ever an accident!

Attached is a pic. of my handsome son. Kenny was born 10/24/1984
& he died on April 18th. 2008 suddenly on a sunny spring Friday.

He was not the easiest of boys to raise but how many are. Yet he grew into this strong tall funny, hard working,lovable man.
2006 he hurt his back @ work he was certified in heavy equipment operations, Required surgery in Feb 2007 artificial disc replacement low back. he had a place of his own in the woods everything he always wanted, his german shepherd Rusty,a home and now a baby on the way.
2007 feb. surgery,june married,10/4/2007 a new son Ethan. Things were not simple nor easy with a new wife/baby. 2007 Christmas Wow what a blessing all of the family were gathered @ my home the family that watched Kenny grow up were present. Who knew this would be his last visit with the important people in his life. Not to mention his last Christmas on earth.
Winter was a bit bumpy for him but he was totally in love with his son. It was always the Kenny & Ethan show. Ethan was 6 1/2 months old when his daddy ; my son died. There are mixed stories from his widow, The sum of all of the stories long & short: The widow and my son were fighting most of the night of 4/17/08 & @ sometime ~ 11AM on 4/18/2008 Kenny took Ethan upstairs to nap, Sometime say~ 3ish Ethan awakened crying (probably knew his daddy had left him) The now widowed woman went up stairs to see why Ethan was crying,,,,, NOW SUDDENLY SHE APPEARS TO CARE ABOUT HER HUSBAND!!! SHE FOUND HIM DEAD!!!who knows how long  he was dead but the EMS could not resuscitate him! 5p.m. I HIS MOMMA the last one called the last to arrive @ Kenny's home lots of cars & police lots of police! I will never forget when they finally allowed me to see my son MY BABY my baby! He looked like the last thing he did was kissed his son & told him I love you Ethan!.................oh i could go on on on........

This is my 3rd. Christmas without my son. The pain never goes away it becomes different. This year I did my usual December things @ the grave: solar powered wreath, A lady I work with was kind enough to set up Kenny's grave candles ( I HAD TO WORK:( )

Attended the gravesites annual Candle lighting ..very late and I did my regular visits. I also layed a new hotwheels tractor @ his stone. Kenny loved the dirt he even grew up and became certified in Heavy Equipment operating. I guess I…

Honored to be your friend on this site.   Guess if there is any consolation our sons passed very peacefully, never knowing what was happening.

Dear Karen...I just read your tragic story of the loss of your son Kenny.  There are so many similarities in my story of losing my son.  Although my son was older (39) he also died in his sleep, had the flu the day his passed but the autopsy report called it an accidental OD.  He too worked in heavy construction and 10 yrs prior had a swimming accident and broke his neck.  He had major surgery but was able to return to work to support his family within a year.  But with that injury came the pain meds.  He needed them to continue to do his job at work.  Then a nasty divorce came and then the anit-depression meds were added to the mix.  So between the meds, the flu, and undiagnoised sleep apnea he left (very peacefully) in his sleep.  Then his (widow) X actully acquired all that he had, even though they had not been togther for 1 1/2 but she wouldn't sign the final papers.  This is all water under the bridge now and out of that marriage came 3 wonderful grand daughters we dearly love.

In reading through your posts we too tell them all, "we love them to the moon and back!!!"....

For me  going on 15 months, I miss him everyday, wake up to his pictures by my computer and go to bed saying goodnight to his smiling face.  He was a good guy, best friend of his Dad (my husband) and just a loveable guy that never met a stranger.  I think I will ask "why" forever, and never know the answer.  I just have to learn to live with our loss, keep him in our memories and try to love his daughters forever.

Sorry for your loss....we will always wonder why our sons?

This has become my new journaling space, almost cathartic. I manage to pull myself together get through a day,I'm supportive of is all others I'm in contact with. The families are faced with good & or bad news: Their Mom/dad,brother/sister,husband etc... now is ok(good news) or OMG: HE/SHE needs bypass surgery or Worse "there's nothing that can be done to help maybe medicines etc...)I do my best & its OK to cry with families while consoling and informing them.

thankyou for the kind words &,support. It's been 22 mo. since I have seen or spoke to my son. I miss him all of the time, I manage to pull myself together get through my day,be supportive of the families faced with both good & bad news: I lost my son to Sudden Cardiac Death I am a Cardiac Cath Nurse/Tech See Hearts are my life & to loose my son to a disease I deal with everyday kills me with each breath I take, the day our Lord took him I knew something was wrong, I had spoken with him Monday & he had flue symptoms, Tuesday he was not up for a visit, Wednesday he & his wife were fighting,Thursday I left him a voice mail, Friday @ around noonish I left voicemails and texts to him, his wife , my ex-husband and felt my life and energy be sucked out of my soul. I went back inside to work & to my workmates I need to go to Kenny's house Somethings wrong, in his own way God????? sent in an emergency heart patient and I was to be the scrub on the case.....So I said to myself ok I'll go to Kenny's after work! I went back into work mode I felt empty but functioned & b4 I knew it, @ 5:18 PM THE LAST PERSON called kENNYS MOM! I arrived stopped by the cops! Saw my dead son hours later police were there investigators etc. & i was the last person to see him my baby Kenny @ 23 yes he will always be my baby! IT FEELS LIKE ONLY YESTERDAY! THE NEWS SEEING HIM LOOSING HIS BODY FOR LIFE! OH I CAN NOT WAIT TO SEE HIM AGAIN!

Of course! the bible says to "console the depressed souls"
I'll keep you in my prayers. I can't wait to see my two uncles i never got to meet, one of them i was named after :) ... It will be a great time won't it, when we can live forever with our loved ones in peace! ( Pslams 37:10,11) thats my favorite scripture actually!
is Karen your first name? Your son was very handsome i am sure your grandchild is just as beautiful.

Dear Miss KMD i am very sorry to read of your loss. That must have been heart breaking for you. You are in my prayers! and take comfort in the ressurrecton hope. You and Ethan will see Kenny again. :) Jesus spoke of it in John 5:28,29 Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out"
