I Love You Son

© Ambika Adhikari Tiwari
My dear son! I miss you so much
It keeps hurting, I can’t stop crying
My eyes always search for you in the sky
Heart longs for finding you in the heaven

My dear son! I love you so much
I feel so empty without you
I am so scared of my future without you
Heart longs for being around you for my safety

My dear son! You are my angel
I still feel that you are caring me from above
I tell my broken heart that you are still watching me
Heart longs for your care even from heaven

My dear son! You are my protector
I remember you when I feel lonely
I talk to you when I break into pieces
Heart longs for your support even from heaven

My dear son! I was thinking I gave you life
The reality is that you had given me life
Without you and your presence, I can’t exist
Heart longs for your company in my heart until I exist
Please be there in my heart

I Love You Son!

  • I would first like to say I'm so sorry for your loss. I know just how you feel. I have walked in your shoes. My 20 year old son, Brandon, was killed on July 12 2008, I miss him more than I could ever say. It has been almost one year and I still cry everyday and still look for him to come home. My life will never be the same and I long for the day I will see him again. Missing my son.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. We lost our only son, Josiah, on December 11, 2007. Our lives will never be the same. We still cry every day. We look for an image of him up at the sky too. Sharon mentions that she can't get back on track. I'm sorry, but you never will. You're on a new track now and need to figure out how to live on it. We're still trying to figure our own out. We love you and miss you so much, Josiah. Mom, Dad, and Jessica

  • One of my 11 year old twin boys lost his battle with leukemia on August 20,2007. It is the most horrible pain I have ever felt in my life. I look at his surviving twin and I can see my son it brings tears to my eyes. At times I wonder how I am suppose to survive this great loss but I know that life continues with or without me. I must be strong for my only living child and even though I continue with life I know that my heart will always be missing a piece because I buried it the day Tyler passed away.

  • I lost my son a few days before she did...he was also 20. He was named Michael. May 28th 2008 his life was taken in a crash. He worked two days and nights with only 3 hours sleep. He fell asleep when he was driving. Almost home too. His car veered into oncoming traffic and head on with a Tractor Trailer... I cannot get it out of my mind... It is so hard to express feelings over a loss of something you loved so very much! Thank You for sharing this poem...God Bless and be with you!

  • I lost my only son on Aug. 6 2006, and I will never be the same person. He was 21 yrs. old, he had just left home on his motorcycle and 15 min. later the 911 call came in. I will never forget that horrible day for the rest of my life. Losing a child is the ultimate loss. So many unanswered questions. I miss him so much... It's difficult to think I have to live the rest of my life without him. I LOVE YOU & MISS YOU SO MUCH, JON.

  • I read all your tragic losses, and my heart aches for you all. My son Jason was taken from us on the 1st August 2007. He was on his way home from purchasing some tent pegs to go camping on the weekend with his son and mates which they did every year at this time. It was a rainy night 6.20pm 500 meters from his home where his wife and 5 children waited.
    He never arrived, he was only 34 the rest of his life to live, never too see any of his kids to grow or marry.
    I miss him with every fiber of my being my life has changed forever, I will never be the same again.
    To lose a child for a mother is the ultimate price to pay.
    Miss you and love you my darling Jason

  • August 23, 2007, I lost my one and only child. Steven was 23 years young. He was a beautiful person inside and out. This loss is the ultimate that a Mother could face, and I don't know how to go about it. It'll be 3 years the 23rd and it seems like yesterday. I miss him terribly. I was his only parent.

  • My 27 year old son was taken from me July 14, 2010. Even the medical examiner doesn't have an explanation. I loved him, and I needed him. But he is gone now. I am hollow, paralyzed without him. No father should have to lose a child.

  • I lost my son Justin on August 27, 2010. He was 21 years old. He had a seizure and flipped his car and the seatbelt cut off his airway. I can not wake up from this awful nightmare, but I have to be strong for his sister that adored him. They were best friends and mine too. There will not be 1 single day that will go by that I will not think or cry for him. I leave the outside light on for him, just in case he comes home. I love and miss him so very much

  • Serry was 21, fell asleep at the wheel, just around the corner from his house. so many friends at the funeral, so many stay in touch. it happened on my birthday! I "stay strong", as I have my daughter, erusha. we both are very close, talk every day. Life must "go on" to honor them, after all, they wouldn't want us to "waste" it. It is so hard, but you must do it. they would be sad to see you fail! find me on Facebook, lets talk and heal !! peace

  • I lost my wonderful son at the tender age of 29 years old. He was in a car accident in Maxton NC, the car flip several times and threw him out. My heart aches every day. I will never see him marry, have my grandchildren, laugh, cry, fuss, hug, have talks about life and Jesus together. I miss him so much. People that have never had to walk in these shoes of losing a child really don't understand how you feel. Part of your life has been ripped out of you and you wonder if I going to make it with out them. Yes, our God will helps us through, the pain is still so real. To all that has lose a child, we will go on with our day to day lives. Our children will live in our hearts ,souls and minds with every breath with take and one day if we live right we will see them face to face in Jesus arms. I'm so sorry for everyone lose of your children. Geneva

Part of your life has been ripped out of you and you wonder if you are going to make it without them. Yes, God will help us through; but the pain is still so real you try so hard to hide it from people because you know they don’t understand and you feel like your pain is private and no one has the time to listen or feel, but please always know My son will live in my heart, soul and mind with every breath I take .

  • I'm so sorry for your loss.
    We lost our oldest son Clayton two years ago at the age of 19 because of a senseless drunk driver and the pain is unbearable. Our lives have changed forever since that day. We have 2 other sons but he was mamas boy.... I still remember how excited my husband and our whole family was when I had him. I was only 21 years old when I gave birth to Clay, he was my beautiful miracle from God. He is my heart and my thoughts every single day on my life. He was a part of me and he took a piece of me with him when he left. I can't even look at his pictures without crying. Clay, I love you and I miss you so much my darling son..... until we meet again, mama.

  • I am so sorry for everyone's losses. It is a tragic thing to lose your child at any age something I don't think I will get over. My son Wesley was murdered by some of his so called friends and then they decapitated him, cut his hands and feet off. This happened at a house party where twelve other people watched and did nothing, then they put his body in a creek and the rest of the body parts in a dumpster. Not one of them phoned the police. His body was found three days later by two young boys, the rest of him has not been found. Now I fight each day to fight for my son. Everyday is so unbearable and I miss him so much, I keep asking him to come home but in reality I will never see him till we meet in heaven. I hope God gives me the strength to do so. Till we meet again Wesley I love you mom

  • My son Tommy died 2 years ago this coming May 6th. He had been out celebrating Cinco De Mayo with his friends and for reasons that I cannot believe got on his motorcycle without his helmet and drove up the on ramp at I-95. He never got any further and he hit a pole around 2:30am. I didn't know until about 11 am that morning because the police had him listed as a John Doe. When they finally brought his ID to the hospital they called me. He was such a precious child to me-my baby of 5 kids. Tommy was only 35 years old. He lived for 8 days but never regained consciousness because of his extensive injuries. My family and his friends kept a constant vigil the entire time he was in the hospital. He is with God now and I can't stop thinking about him. I have pictures to cry with and keep a little journal that I write to him a lot just letting him know what is happening and how much he is missed. God Bless You All.

  • I too am very sorry for all of your losses. Although our stories differ, we share the same sadness and loss. I lost my wonderful and beautiful 27 year old only son, my best friend, and my favorite person in the world. He was away at graduate school and became very depressed, major depression with psychosis. It was terrible to see him suffer serious mental illness and then terrible to lose him to suicide. He was a very kind hearted person and did not deserve this. I miss and love you Robert.

  • I lost my 24 year old son, Daryl last Dec. 18, 2010 while playing basketball with his officemates, it was supposed to be an ordinary left leg fractured that was operated but after 15 days he died due to fat embolism. My husband is a seaman, went home for his vacation but only to bury his eldest son and he also celebrated his 57th birthday in the funeral. We never thought that it will happened to us we are so devastated and asked God why my son who was already an electronic engineer and worked in a prestigious multinational company. So many questions but only God knows the answer. Up to now, I cannot move on with my life but I'm trying to be strong for my husband and my other son. The poem really touched me a lot that I know Daryl is a our angel guiding us to make it to our daily existing. Love you son from here to eternity

  • Yesterday was my 43rd birthday. It was the first birthday without my beautiful oldest son James who passed away August 16, 2010. He was electrocuted in a freak accident while replacing plumbing pipes in the crawlspace 25 feet up under a house. OSHA refused to investigate UNDER the house. It has been almost 9 months and I just still feel paralyzed. He left a fiancee that was 33 weeks pregnant with their daughter when he died. He also left me a grandson who was 2. If not for them and my other two sons I believe me and my husband would both die of sheer grief. We are not dealing with this well. I cry constantly. My son was my everything...I adored him. He was the most beautiful person I've ever encountered and he taught me so much. I love you baby boy. Time stopped for me that day. Mom will never be the same and I cannot wait to see you again my precious precious angel.

  • Today is Father Day, I went to visit my son's grave, who passed away 2 years ago at the young age of 25. My pain is raw, real and daily. I would have never believed that a grown man could cry this much. Like so many parents my son was everything to me, and his absence has left me so empty. It is so hard to believe why did this happen to us, we didn't deserve this and we never get the answers we are wanting. Take care of yourself son, Dad looks forward to spending an eternity with you.

  • I'm so sorry for all of you and what you are going through. I lost my only son Tyler in a horrible car crash on July 22, 2010. He had just turned 22 on July 1. His two best friends and their girlfriends were coming home from vacation at the beach. Tire blew out SUV flipped a few times and my son's seat belt broke and he flew out 70 feet both his friends died too, the girls had a few bumps but where fine. I know I shouldn't be mad at that but I am cause it was their mother's car that she wasn't taking care off. I loved my son with everything I had, we were just alike, my daughter is like her dad. My son put a tattoo of my name on his arm for mother's day last year and got his GED for me to. Now he's gone for no reason I cry everyday I feel like I'm gonna go crazy sometimes. He would have made a great husband and father. God bless you all

  • My son Jesse passed away on July 3,2011. He was a passenger in a single car rollover and was killed almost instantly. He was 20 years young and my eldest son. It has been a little over 3 weeks. I am paralyzed, cannot breathe or function due to the pain his death has caused me. Does it really never get easier? I am told not to be selfish because I have 4 other children but my grief is devouring me. I am angry, sad, confused, crazed......

  • First let me say I am so sorry for everyone's pain :( I too lost my oldest child, my son Blake, in an auto accident. He was born 11/18/84 and he passed on 11/8/10. I just got through the 9 month mark and at times it feels my heart is just going to give out from grief! Thankfully I have my 22 year old daughter to live for and I have wonderful friends and family who are there for me. I also wanted to let everyone know .. if you have a Facebook account .. there are wonderful grief groups for parents who have lost children! They are a surprisingly large group of moms and dads who are there for you anytime! One is the Compassionate Friends, Grieving Mothers, and Loss of an Adult or Young Adult Child. Please reach out to these groups if you would like to speak to someone. They are anonymous and no one from your Facebook friends will see anything you write! (((hugs))) and love to you all! It is a long lonely road we walk!

  • Wow its amazing to know how many people feel my pain. You think you are alone until you stumble across something like this. My son ended his own life on 14 Feb 2011, we don't know why the ache is too much to handle. I miss him every day and I wish I knew how to move away from the pain. I also lost my dad in June 2011 but I feel so numb to the pain. I feel for every parent that feels this pain is so difficult to deal with. Thank you for sharing your stories so that mom's like myself don't feel so lonely.

  • We lost our son Kevin April 2, 2006, at the age of 38, he was a son, brother, husband & Father. I am his Mother I still can't believe he's gone I feel I must talk about him. I am thankful for 2 beautiful grandchildren he left me, which is my reason to live, I lost my husband, Kevin's father in January and I'm still mad he left me alone to grieve.
    The death of a child is the worst thing that could ever happen to anyone, I lost my Mother 8 months before my son and that was difficult, but nothing could compare to losing a child, not even losing my husband after 48 1/2 years of
    marriage, the loss of my son is the worst.

  • My son was 23 and died last year, July 2, 2010, while serving in Iraq. The pain and loneliness I feel goes beyond words. I raised my 3 children as a single father from the time my youngest was 1 month old and my boys were two and three. No one in my entire family, including my mother, ever called or came to see me after his death. The one time I did try to reach out to them I was told it was my fault he was dead because of the I raised him. He was a soldier who loved serving his country and I feel that he has been so disrespected by them. I never remarried and my children were my whole life. How can the pain that now consumes me ever end? My other two children are grown and have there own lives. I am alone with this and he fills me mind every waking and sleeping moment. I don't see this agony ever ending. He was the child closest to me and most like me. I miss him so so much. I love you Caleb and hope we will be together soon.

  • We lost our precious son Michael on 09/01/07 in a tragic, senseless accident. The boy driving the car was loaded on drugs. He lost control of the car and our son was thrown out of the passenger window onto the freeway, where another driver ran over him. We have to pass that section of freeway all the time. We have put up a medal cross and we keep it decorated on all the Holidays, this does give some solace. We miss him so much, I thank the Lord for the 20 years he allowed us to have him before he decided to take him back. I understand all of your grief. We are so empty, but very lucky that we have other children. No one could ever replace your beautiful smile or your witty personality. We love you forever and always Mom and Dad, Zac, Phillip and your precious son Gavin, who is a true gift from God. At the time Gavin was born you were only seventeen and we now understand God sent him to us because he was going to bring you back home. If we could walk up to heaven and bring you home we would be on our way this very day.

  • We lost our loving son, Jitin to a motor bike accident on 04 /11/10. He was only 19 years old. When my child went to be with the lord a part of us went with him. Every morning I get up with the thought that I have been through a nightmare and my son would open the door and walk in. I thank God for giving me this precious child to nurture and take care for the 19 years he was with us. Everyone who knew him miss him dearly, such was his fun filled and cheerful nature. Can't wait to be at his side. We miss the hugs and kisses he would liberally give us.

  • I am so sorry for everyone's loss.
    I lost my son March 11 2011. He was 19 years old.
    It was just me and my son that lived here at home. The autopsy report says suicide and they had ruled it suicide the evening he died. I just have a hard time believing he done this. Such a good sweet Christian boy. He was so full of life and making plans for the next day and next week.
    So many people knew him from different churches that we visited (as our church is 115 miles away) and they all say there is no way he did this to himself. I have no answers I just know I miss my baby boy and my heart hurts. My life is so empty. I cry all through the day, wake up crying.
    I have been through a lot of hurts in my 45 years but this is the worst hurt I have or will ever go through. We went everywhere together, done so much together. he was strict with his religion beliefs so much of his life and doing things revolved around church.
    Everyone are in my prayers, God bless

  • We lost our precious son Enrik on 08/04/2011 in a tragic car accident.
    The man driving the car he didn't have a driving license or car insurance, and he has been told by his doctor not to drive that night. He lost control of the car and he drove on the other side of the road and crushed another car. My son Enrik was a passenger in that car. He was only 19 years old. Everyone who knew Enrik misses him dearly. He was such loving and caring person. More than thousand people came on his funeral. I still have many questions to ask god why. Three days before the accident I wrote a prayer thanking god for giving me my children and family and I put it on facebook, after three days the accident happened. Why? I still expect Enrik to walk through the door or hear his voice. My heart is half and I will never recover…Enrik's death has destroyed us, we are never going to be the same. I miss and love you Enrik.xxxxxxxxxxxx

  • I am so very sorry for your loss, and for all the other parents here who have lost a child. I was looking at poems and ran across yours, and it so much reminded me of myself. I too lost my son on August 8, 2009, two weeks before his 24th birthday. He was my only child, and my life seems so empty without him. Everyone keeps telling me that it will be more bearable as time goes on, but, it has now been 2 1/2 years, and it seems it gets harder each day. Not only was he my son, he WAS my best friend. I talk a lot to him, that helps some, but I still cannot understand why the ONLY important thing in my life could be taken away. My heart is broken, and I really don't think it will ever come close to mending.

    I lost my son 32 years old and my daughter in law only 25 years old in a car accident. they left behind their daughter who was only 13 months old then. The accident happened on Mombasa Road while they were traveling to Mombasa. The baby was in the car too but god saved her she didn't get a scratch.
    It is so painful we miss them so much, people say it will become easier as time goes by but it is becoming most difficult, we see the baby Jeeya and get strength but its not easy.

  • My youngest son died on Dec.14, 2011, 7 days after his 33rd birthday in an epilepsy seizure. My heart goes out to all Mother's who have lost a child. My son battled with epilepsy for 32 years. I will never be the same again. He was not only my son but my best friend. I have to keep reminding myself I am not the only Mother that has lost a child. This is a healing reading all these stories. I lost my beautiful Mother on September 21, 2005 from a heart attack. 3 years later on October 11, 2008 My precious Father lost his battle from Kidney cancer. Now my son is gone 3 years after my Father. It hurt real bad to lose my Parents but the pain is much worst losing my son. I still have much to live for, I still have one son and 2 grandchildren. I feel so hurt for the Mother's that have lost their only child. Reading these beautiful poems is a healing. God Bless all you Mother's that have lost a child. I know I am not the only Mother in such pain.

  • I feel everyone's loss; a parent should never have to say goodbye to their children at any age. I am almost 7 months into this nightmare that is so very constant. I lost my beautiful 19 year old son ( two weeks before his 20th birthday ) Christopher; to acute alcohol intoxication. He was such a good boy, did not go to parties very often as this was the third one that he attended. I am not sure what made him drink so much that night that it would kill him; no other drugs were found in his system at all. I miss him so very much and I cry for him everyday. I keep going for his older sister 22 yrs. old. I am a single mom, and for now I search the web looking for love and support with parents that know what I am feeling. Would love to be e-mailed by anyone that can help. Thank you God for the 19 years with Christopher; I feel very blessed to be his mother I love you Son; MOM

I still feel very guilty because I made it out and he couldn't. To lose a child no matter how old he or she was doesn't make it better for any parent to go through the loss of a child or children.

  • My son. my most beautiful firstborn. Dylan Waylon. Oh, how I absolutely and completely adored/worshipped him. Dylan was the complete embodiment of my soul. He was my son. My beloved. My first true son. Dylan gave me life, gave me reason...and understanding. He loved me the only way he could. He threw his kitten in the tub at bath time, he would only eat fresh eggs from the farmers market and he would throw the (hugest) tantrums because his uncle would refuse him his GTA. (watching it, and he LOVED watching us play it)...Dylan loved everyone, no matter who it was. He could look at you and all you would feel was love. I love you Dylan my first, FOREVER.

  • I know how it feels to loose a son, I lost my only son in August 11, 2009. He was only 9 years old. I miss him so much, his name was Valente. Everytime that I see pictures or videos, I can't smile, only cry. People always tells me, time will heal your pain, but I know is not true. Only people that have lost a child understand our pain. We have to learn again how to live! How to smile! Valente was the life of our family! Now is silent and sadness. he loved horses, soccer, animals. He was loved by friends and family. He was polite, friendly and so loving. He was my flaco, my boy, that loved to give me little notes with hearts! I miss him so much. Valente Torres will be miss forever

  • I lost my only Son, Ryan who was 18 years old, 5 years ago on June 15, 2007. He acquired a virus that attacked his heart. I got the phone call at 2:30 am in the morning when he was visiting his father's for the first time in his life and I couldn't believe what I was hearing. The next morning I was on a plane to get my son's body. For the next few years I spent every night at his grave, just longing to be near him. I just couldn't take it even knowing my baby was in Heaven. Thank the Lord I do believe in God and Heaven and that it was all part of God's plan. I was just so sad to lose my best friend in life. I feel for all the parents who have lost their children, all the Grandparents, they hurt so much, the siblings, and all the friends that don't know what to say to us. I do know that I am so grateful though for having my Ryan for 18 years. Without him I wouldn't have known what this world would have been fully like living.

  • The love and sorrow in these stories is overwhelming, and strangely comforting to this mother, who just lost her tall, gorgeous 27 year old son on August 12, 2012, to an accidental drug overdose. Joshua sucked the air out of the room wherever he went! People from Oklahoma to Florida sent condolences..people I never even met, who had been touched by his quick wit, his easy manner, his goofy jokes, tall tales and million-dollar smile! Oh, that smile! It is those little things I miss the most, the sound of his laughter as he played with his baby daughter, Khloe. The giggles on the other side of the door, as he sparked with Mystene, the love of his life, who had been his fast companion since age 12. How I long to laugh at his stupid attempts to shock his mother with a silly rap, or an off-color joke! How I miss that buzz-saw snoring...that midnight refrigerator raiding...that gentle plea for a $20 dollar loan till payday! Josh worked hard, played hard & loved hard..he had a fierceness about him...he was a prince, a warrior, a sad, sweet boy inside a 6 foot 3 inch body! With fiery eyes that hid his deep insecurities, he was soft & hard at the same time! A mother's dream...until the drug Oxycontin lured him away from his grandma, his mother, his sisters, his fiancee, daughter & friends! And a precious unborn child who will never know how much he loved his family! I want to blame everyone..myself, of course, cause as a counselor I should have been able to persuade him..the person who pulled up outside my own house, to slip him a pill that toppled our world! I am angry with him for risking it all for one last time on the wild side. I blame his grandparents for enabling him..his friends for not stopping him, his Dad for not being there, and God who did not intervene! And a culture that taught him there was a pill for every ill! but ultimately, he is gone...a fallen prince whose legacy is still being written, as his story may help others realize that what you have and owning your feelings, both good and bad, is so much better than numbing the pain of the struggle and risking being taken forever out of the battle! Every Christmas, every birthday, every moment from now till I join him, I will see his sparkling eyes, miss his marvelous smile and mourn for what never will be! The pain is overwhelming! I was with him at the moment he came into this world, and in the same hospital, I laid my head on his chest, over the tattoo of his little sister's name, and listened until his powerful heart faded and stopped beating, and his laughter was silenced forever! How blessed I am that I was given that gift, for so many of you heard that your child had died far away from your arms! I am praying for and crying with each one of you! Thank God we had them for the time we did. How long & hard the journey seems now! Forever Joshua's Mom, Debi

  • I lost my precious son on Nov 5, 2012. He was in an automobile accident which took his life. He was 36 yrs old. His 7 year old son was in the car also but his life was spared and he was unharmed. I thank God for that. He was so amazing, a devoted father, loving husband, wonderful son and devoted to God. He has left a legacy behind him that will last forever. The many lives he touched along his journey cannot be explained only experienced. My heart is broken and the pain almost unbearable for I have lost a part of me. He was loved by so many but somehow I feel the greatest loss. He was my support in my times of need. A friend with who I could talk to about anything. How I wish I could just touch him and look at him and tell him how much he is loved. It is so hard to move forward in life without him. This seems like a nightmare and I just want to wake up. Oh how I miss you my son! I don't understand why parents have to give up their children. Someday when I am reunited with him in heaven God will let me know but for now I'm lost without him. He so wanted to raise his son and I don't understand why God took him so soon. My heart is aching and the pain is so deep. My heart cries out to him. I want him back, I cried out to God. Truly the ones left behind suffer the most for he is now in the arms of Jesus. This is the worst thing that has ever happened to me. It is also heart breaking to see his son without his dad. If only we had all the answers maybe then we could get through this easier but for now I am a mother that has lost her precious son to death. Forever in our hearts, my son, we miss you terribly. Until we meet again in heaven. Love mom

Well Joe got into a situation with someone else there my son tried to defuse that situation and as a result got stabbed in the heart. My baby died within minutes. He was also an organ donor but the vicious way he was murdered medical could not save any organs. He always was one to help people in any situation. Oh my GOD I miss him sooooooo much and my life has not gotten any easier. He's the first thing I think of when I wake and the last face I see before sleep which doesn't come easy for me. I've had no counseling no medication. no support group.. nothing, I just deal with it ALONE!!!!! So everybody out there who has lost children you are not alone !!!!

  • We lost our son, Mic Arthur on October 2,2012 from a blood clot to his lungs, he was 22 years old. He died in his sleep. We had adopted him and his older sister when they were 5 and 6 years old from an abusive situation. Our son was autistic and had a host of other disorders due to the abuse. I poured my life into him over the next 17 years helping him to prepare for the ''real world''. Although there were many ''dark years'' he rose out of the ashes like a Phoenix. He graduated high school, went on to join the Michigan Army National Guard and served in Kuwait and Iraq, even survived an IED in Iraq, had plans of enlisting into the law enforcement program, only to come home and die of a blood clot. I miss him so much. I was searching for an article to place in the newspaper in memory of his one year anniversary and found The All I know Is poem. It helped me through this painful journey and expresses how I really feel, every day. Reading the other stories has given me comfort too.

I miss my son so much I know God gave me his sister after 15 years to ease the pain when he call him home but I still miss my son so much. We use to talk about everything and he was took from me at a very young age and it hurt so much.

  • To my dear son Charles R Bates on March 26-2013, your life was taken from us in the blink of a eye. We never got to say our last word I love you these days I sit around in our lonely home wishing you was still here. I know that you are in your new home called Heaven God sent for you because he knew that he needed you to carry on with your brother's and sister's in your home up above he came and took his Angel back to a better place behind those golden gates. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you. Your pictures stay on the walls of our home the tears I cry are because I miss you so much. The hurt that I feel is because I long to hold you I keep you with me 24/7 close to me, you now live in my heart a place that is for you. No one can take your place I love you and miss you son when I get to Heaven we will be together again so keep your arms open to hold me when that time come. Love you always and forever your Mamam

  • Heartfelt Sympathy to all who grieve the loss of their loved ones. No words to describe the pain of losing a child, no matter what age. My first-born-son, Mark A. Ojeda was born on December 20, 1968, was found dead on December 7, 2002. The actual date and time of death was not determined; however, circumstances were questionable. Ten years have passed and my heart still aches. Life changed forever on that day. I refer to it as life BEFORE MARK and life AFTER MARK. Found myself in fetal position crying, staring into space, hoping the nightmare would end. Somehow, God intervened and I turned to HIM. During this time I wrote a lot, cried a lot and prayed for strength. Part of me died with my son. There are people who say, "I understand your pain", but look at me with disgust because I still talk about him. Internally I scream, "Until you lose a child, then you''ll earn the right to tell me to get on with my life"! Happy Birthday, my precious Marko.

  • My Son died December 14, 2013. He was 26 years old. He was my heart and he was a mamas boy. It is so hard to wake up and realize he is gone. I cry all the time, my heart is just broken.

  • My heart aches for all the mom's, I to lost my son at the age of 22. It was a day that changed my life forever. I received a phone call on my way home from work. My son's dad asked if I was driving I knew this was not going to be good. I asked is Rick alright he said no, he shot himself. I didn't comprehend what was said until his dad told me he was gone. I just started screaming, I couldn't breathe and until this day I don't remember how I got home. He was my baby boy. I had just seen him how could this be. What did I miss? I too will miss his wedding and the grandbabies I would have had. He was the light of my life, that light went out that day on August 22, 2005. Missing him doesn't come close to how I feel. Forever and always loving him.

  • I too lost my most precious son on March 14, 2013, 3 days before his 30th birthday. He lost control of his motorcycle, due to an alcohol and cocaine addiction that spanned 10 years. I am adopted and my son and daughter are, were my only blood. My daughter, 28, just had her first child, my first Grandchild, a Grandson named Tyler Alexander. Unfortunately, for some reason she suddenly stopped speaking to me. I was told not to come to the hospital when she had him. I was allowed to see him for 1 hour when he was 5 weeks old. He was born on 11/12/13 and I have held him once! I feel like I have now lost not only my beautiful son but also my daughter and my Grandson! I am sooo alone, I find it hard to believe that I can be in sooooo much pain and still be alive. Austin was so much like me in so many ways, we were as close as any son and mother could be. I know that I will be with you again my love, alway mom

  • It will be 11 years on March 3, 2014 that I've lost my son in a very tragic accident. Since that day my whole life has changed. I miss my son dearly but I know that he is also in a better place. It was a murder/suicide. It's not easy dealing with this sort of death but my family and friends have been there for me through this whole time and helped me and stood by my side. People always ask me how I deal with it. I tell them I take it day by day. I pray that no one ever has to go through what I went through…

  • It will be our loving son Darren's first Angelversary on Mar. 8/13 (three days before my birthday on Mar. 11). He was born on July 1st/72 on his dad's 25th birthday!! He had been in an accident at work on Dec. 1/12 and was suffering from terrible post-concussion headaches which the Coroner said was the cause of his blood clot that killed him instantly here at home in the shower. By the time I got to him he was already gone. He and I were so close and had an ESP kind of relationship! We are still in such shock but we are trying to get on with our lives because we have a beautiful daughter and her family (our two granddaughters) and son-in-law. May you all have some comfort in your lives and keep the faith that we will all be together again one day~~Darren did come to me while I was having my fourth hip surgery Nov. 1st. I awoke during surgery to find him holding my hand and him telling me "Don't worry mom, everything will be just fine" and IT WAS. Thanks son~~Love you <3

  • I'm so so sorry for every one loss. I just lost my only son and I have 8 girls. He was my only son it's been a year now and it hurts so bad I still do things for him like he is still here. I just want to hold him tell him I love him. It's hard. All I know is a mother should never bury their children, never. Heart can't handle that, I love you son.

  • I lost my son in 2004 he was only 4 months old I think of Gage everyday. I lost my son when the father decided to shake him to death. Its almost been 10 years and it still haunts me like it was yesterday. I have nightmares of my final hold of my son as I held him in my arms till he passed. I'll never see his blue eyes or his beautiful smile. I know God is taking care of my son like a mom is supposed to till I see him again and till then me and his brothers will carry on his name and never forget.

  • I can associate with this poem my son Gary passed away six weeks ago. I found him dead in bed ( I did not realize at first that he was dead). It was the 1st February two days off his 42nd birthday. He was my eldest son, my constant companion and my best friend. He was a loyal and loving son and we cared for one another. He stood by me through thick and thin. He was the eldest of five and he and his son lived with me. I feel so lost and alone at the moment.

  • I am reading all these stories and feeling your pain and sadness. I am so sorry that we have all lost children. I lost my wonderful son, Craig McPherson 3 weeks ago in a car accident. He was driving to work, seat belt on, and a woman crossed the center line and hit my son head on leaving him in grave condition. The paramedics arrived in 4 minutes and kept my son alive until he got to the hospital. The doctors did everything possible. I hate being part of the awful club. People talk about broken hearts and now I truly understand what that means. Each minute of each day my heart feels split in two. I miss you Craig, I miss hearing your laugh and seeing your handsome face. I know you made an impact in your 26 years on this Earth. 300 people came to your life celebration. They all had stories to tell me how you impacted their lives. June 8, we will celebrate again by honoring you with Pay it Forward Day and keep your loving spirit alive. I love you son!
