Dear Robin - I just read your most recent post and felt I had to write to you. Thank you so much for putting into words exactly what I needed to hear.  My wonderful son Tyler died on 01/26/10 at age 24 after inhaling computer duster.  He was a college graduate, a wonderful friend, smart, sensitive, funny and loving.  He had never had a problem with drugs growing up.  Somehow he found out about this and tried it - it was very addicting and he began using frequently.  We (his parents, girlfriend and friends) immediately got him into rehab, but he would only go as an outpatiend, not inpatient.  He would manage to find and use on the days he was not at rehab.  Within 3 weeks of our finding out about this he passed away in the bathroom in work, with a can of duster on the floor.  If you had told me a month prior that my son would die of a drug overdose, I would have called you insane.  Yet here we are.  He was a devout Christian and went to a Christian college where he majored in Philosophy and Bible Studies.  I am certain that if he opened his eyes and found himself with Jesus, that he never had a second thought about coming back.  I also know that he is aware of how greatly I suffer every minute of every day.  I can feel him sometimes when I am at my worst, just behind me, with his arms around my shoulders.  But it is so good for you to remind me where HE is and to realize that he is in peace, not struggling with any demons, and happier than he could ever been here on earth.  My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Thanks for getting back to me.  I have never heard of that drug....oh these kids and what mistakes they made.  So very sad for all of us.  With Donny it was pain pills that he had been taking for a very long time, depression pills because of a nasty mean divorce going on and then somehow methadone.  In my day only heroin users had access to that drug but nowadays it is used for pain control and easily prescribed by Dr.s all the time.  It should be closely monitored when given but in so many cases of losing children the Dr's did not keep check on any of them.

Like you said, we have no other choice but to accept our young sons will not be with us ever again.  Wayyyy easier said than done.

Thank goodness for this website, it has been my salvation.  Thank you for accepting me as a friend....

Robin,  You said exactly the things my brain has been trying to wrap around...  I think to myself.. if I can keep breathing after losing my Tommy the way I did then I can do just about anything.    I love what you said... It never gets better we just keep trying ... for them and the other's in our lives.   God Bless you for your words today I believe you were sent from God to talk to me heart.  Thank you.  Shannon

Robin, I really can feel your pain, I lost my only two sons together in a car crash. Both were drunk and also a friend who was riding with them. Leon Jr. Was 29 and Wayne was 28 and left a two year old son. From their death God led me to start a Christian Ministry in Charlotte for Parents who have lost a child, it is called Footprints and we put out an Christian newsletter every three months to help families in grief. If it was not for God, I would not be here,I would have died or be in an insane hospital. From Footprints God led me to start a Children of all ages community memorial Garden in uptown Charlotte and we have over 1200 engraved bricks of children of all ages that have died in our community.Our website is www.ocmw.org Also from my sons death, God led me to start a community program to save the lives of our young people in Charlotte from drugs and alcohol. Last year, I spoke to over 6500 teens on the Choices they make. We have a prayer team that prays for us and We give God the credit for the results. All these programs came from the death of my only sons, they loved people and would want me to try and help other teens not make the choices they did starting in high schools because of peer pressure. I am so thankful to God for all He has done in my life and continues to do everyday. I know I will see my sons again one day because of the right choice they made as preteens to accept Christ as their Savior. We now do Griefshare to help anyone through grief over the loss of any family member at Hickory Grove Baptist and our next class starts on March 10 at 6:30 for anyone who has lost a loved one. It is a Christian based program and you can go on www.griefshare.org and see what the program is about

Hi Robin, I'm really sorry for the loss of your son. Your words were an encouragement to me. I'm a Christian and so was my son, so I know he's in a much better place. No more wheelchair and freedom to do all those things that his earthly body wouldn't allow him to do. I miss him a lot but the Lord has blessed me with the ability to keep moving forward. I minister to children and that helps alot too. I find a lot of comfort in Barbara Johnson books. She learned how to find joy after losing 2 of her 4 sons. I also lost my infant son, Noah when he was 7 weeks old, to SIDS. That was 28yrs ago and the Lord has never forsaken me. My life has not been a bed of roses, more like a sticker patch but my faith has grown a little more with each trial. Barbara had a quip in one of her books that rang true to me. "The reason we grow so much in the valleys is because that's where all the manure is!" I should be a tower of strength as should anyone who has had to travel this journey. Blessings. Kathy
