September 2nd will be 3yrs I lost my son Richard. I know some people say it should be getting easier by this time. For me this is the hardest reality is starting kick in and I can't believe my son is gone I will never see him hear his voice again and I can't accept the fact he is gone and I think its because I had no time to really grieve for my son. Since my son died I went through a lot with my family and marriage that caused me so much pain and I kept it inside because I needed to stay…Continue

So sorry for your loss. I will be praying for you. I think we all have different ways of dealing with our grief. For me, it has been leaning on Jesus and talking about Jon. I also listen to his music that we had in common, as well as some that he liked that I didn't particularly care for. It seemed to help me see a part of him that he didn't share with me. I found a lot of comfort here at Legacy because people responded to my posts, even it if it was just to say they were sorry. It helped me to read here so I didn't feel so alone.
Thanks for friending me. The web site for Compassionate Friends is below. Looks like the closest chapter is in Bakersfield. It would be worth calling the contact person to see if she knows anybody closer. But if not, I think it would be worth the drive to go to a meeting. There is another national parent grief support groups called Bereaved Parents of the USA. Its a lot smaller, and I don't know much about it. However It does have a lot more understandable title than CF does. :-) The web site for this groups is also below. But because of its size, the nearest group to you is in Sacramento.
Sharing your feelings here at Legacy Connect is really great, but nothing beats talking things out either in person or by phone. Let me know if you'd like to talk. For parents who have lost children, and since I'm retired, I'm available a lot of the time [My wife would kick my you-know- what if I said "24/7" :-)]. Take care and let me know if you find a place to share your grief.
Debbie, I'm so sorry you have to be here on the web page with us. I lost my son 4 month ago in a tragic car accident. I miss my son everyday. I keep asking the same question every day why my son. Debbie how did your son pass away if you dont mind telling me.
