March 4th 2005, the day my life will have changed forever. It was like any other day, or so I thought…until I received the news about my son, Ryan. having been killed in a single vehicle rollover accident on I-10 near Tonopah AZ. I have been on an emotional roller coaster ride ever since. Up one day and down the next…Realizing I would never get to hear his voice, his laugh; oh could he laugh. Never receiving another phone call saying, wuz up mom, or never getting another one of his big bear hugs or hear his beautiful music coming from his Fender Strat. I would give anything to hear the sound of that guitar again, anything…just one more time please.

Dear Nancy,
My heart aches for you. My son was killed in an auto accident this past December, just before the holidays and only 5 days after his 16th birthday. I long for his kisses on the cheek, the I Love You text messages, the morning coffee runs together, the EVERYTHING about his sweet soul. My Aunt had a son who was killed in a single vehicle rollover 28 years ago. It was my cousin whom I was close to. I often wondered how she was able to continue her life. I saw her change from an outgoing vibrant woman who was involved in her community service work, church, family and friends. I watched her become a soft-spoken, closed in her home recluse. She is an awesome lady still, but this loss changed her life completely. I don't know how you or my Aunt or anyone else who has endured the anguish of losing a son at such a young age - but with knowing that I am not alone I can draw from that strength and learn to conquer my fears and grief and use them as tools to readjust my living. This sounds so simple but as you know is the most gut-wrenching, heartbreaking task any momma must ever face. My heart is with you.
