I don't think there is any greater loss than the loss of a child. I experienced the death of my parents, my grandparents, and other close friends and relatives but nothing could ever prepare me for the death of my son. Jason passed away on Jan. 27, 2005 at the age of 27. The grief and pain is just as great today as it was then. I have an older son and younger daughter whom I love very much, but there will always be this hole in my heart for the one I lost. To all you other parents out there you have my sympathy for I can truly say, I know what you are going through.
I am new to this site and wish I had discovered it a lot sooner. Hope you all will have some insight for me and maybe I can offer some to you.

I just lost my 26 year old son on December 2. Yes, the pain is unbearable and I don't think it will get any easier. Those who have never experienced this kind of loss haven't a clue of the pain we experience.

Hi Helen,
Glad you finally found us. I lost a son too, just recently, Oct 2009. He was 19 and of course I am missing him terribly. It is still fresh so I still cry often and feel down. I am forcing myself to exercise and socialize a bit so that I do not sink into the darkness of depression. I too have a surviving son, he is 16. And I have a question for you. How do you speak with your son and daughter about Jason?? I am trying not to put too much pressure on my 16 yr old but He knows he is all I have left and is feeling that heavy responsibility. Any ideas? I see you are 5 years into your healing process so I hope you have some insight.Thanks and blessings to you and your family

I am sorry for the loss of your son, Jason. You can talk to me about him anytime. I lost my precious son, Chad, on 9/4/09 to a car accident. No drinking, no drugs, no real explanation. I love that boy with everything I am. When I see you five years later, I know you speak the truth. It scares me to live without Chad. I hold onto my belief that we will be together again, but this is so hard. I feel he got so cheated out of this life. Never mind my pain, it's what he didn't get to do. He was just 18.

It is amazing how people don't want to talk about our children anymore. I say Chad's name often, and I always will. You can read more about my son at www.chadarthurholbrook.com.

Again, anytime you need someone to listen, I will be there.

God bless.

Lisa (Chad's mom)
