I Love You, Son

Published: October 2008

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.
My heart longs for finding you in the heavens.

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

My dear son, you are my angel.
I still feel that you are caring for me from above.
I tell my broken heart that you are still watching me.
My 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.
My 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.
My heart longs for your company in my heart until I exist.
Please be there in my heart.

I love you, son!

I'm so sad to read all these sad stories. I feel like I'm reading my own . I lost my 25-year-old son in a accident one year ago today. I spend more time in my room than I ever have. I lost not only my child but my best bud. I'm a changed person. Twenty-five is too young to die. I ponder why it wasn't me. I'm old and lucky if I have 20 years left. James was a character. He was loving, kind, and never said a bad word about nobody. I feel the pain of others. So sorry!

I lost my son Mason June 2nd this year. He would have been 26 on the 26th of June. The pain is unbearable. I feel bad for crying and breaking down, so I do it when people are not around. My prayers are with the ones who have lost people they loved so deeply in their lives. God bless.

Andrea, I lost my son Vincent on February 26, 2009. He was 19 years of age (so it will be 10 years next week). You shouldn't feel bad for breaking down or crying, and please don't let anyone make you feel that way. No one can imagine or even try to unless they have gone through it. Grieving for a child is a lifetime. We don't forget. As a mother, we love unconditionally, whether they are here or not. Our love bridges from Earth and Heaven. We have no boundaries. Yes, my prayers do go out to all who have lost a child or other family members.

In our vicinity, a couple abruptly lost their 19-year-old son last Sunday in a tragic manner. The deceased was a classmate of my grandson and used to visit our home off and on. I have been thinking about his parents' plight since then. Your poem, "I Love You, Son," helped me to empathize with them. It also helped me to de-stress myself a bit.
Thank you very much.

I, too, am missing my son, Andy. He had the most beautiful smile and big brown eyes. He died last year on his 32nd birthday. It is a long and depressing story - but through his life, I found mine. In 1994, my little brother died by suicide. I was introduced to The Compassionate Friends, a self-help, non-profit grief group for families who have lost a child, sibling, or grandchild. In 2013, my sister, then 41, died in a roll-over, leaving behind 4 kids. I have been and still am a part of our local chapter of The Compassionate Friends. If you can find the strength and courage, please find a chapter. There are parents all around the world who share your pain. You are not alone. I know my son and siblings are with me, and miss them so very much. But I keep on living, looking for purpose and practicing good will. God bless you all.

In July of 2016, my oldest daughter went to sleep and never woke up. While I was grieving the loss of her, I found out 6 months later my youngest daughter had the last stage of bone cancer. She passed away April 2017. I am now grieving the loss of both my daughters. On January 2, 2018, my son was murdered. In 16 months I lost my 3 children. My son was the last of my children. Now all I feel is pain. My children were and always will be my life.

  • 1 year ago

I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine losing 3 kids in a short time with no time to fully grieve one loss before the other. God must have made you a strong woman. I lost one son, and it is hard for me. He was 32 years old when he was murdered. I pray God helps you with your pain so you can move forward with your life. I know people say it was their time to go, but I also believe the devil is on a rampage killing our kids. God bless you. I will be praying for you.

I lost my son, Jereme Lee, 2 months ago due to an aneurysm. My world collapsed as we did not know about this aneurysm that can just take our boy of 21 years old away without sign or any symptoms. He was a healthy boy with a bright future. It was just the beginning of his world in university life. We looked up to him for taking care of us as we will be retiring soon. Now our world is upside down. Every minutes I think of him as my son always with me each day of his life. He was very attached to me from small a small child. I gave up my career from the day he was born. Now I'm left with nothing because my world belonged to him. I feel lost and without many friends, I cannot accept the fact he is gone. I don't know how long I can struggle to be strong again. I lose my faith and interest in all things. As earlier I lost my mom too before my son. It happened in a time period of just 2 weeks.

Ma'am, I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my son also. My faith, my friends, and my mother reminded me that his life was planned out by God in the womb and it's all in God's plan, not ours. After 3 years, I returned to church, and I had to ask myself, would my son want me to be this unhappy? No, he wouldn't. My son was full of life, just as yours was, so hang onto the love in your heart for him, because there he will never leave you. Keep the faith. Peace and love.

I find it hard to imagine others have gone through the same as me. Our son died as a result of the Christchurch earthquake 22.2.11. His death could have been avoided, which is difficult to come to terms with. The property manager was told on numerous occasions to tell his tenants the building was deemed unsafe after the 2010 quake, but he chose to ignore the emails, continued to advise the tenants the building was safe, and collected rent off them. When the February earthquake struck, our son went to run outside the building, opened the door to let his female work colleague out, but the building collapsed and killed him, one week after his 25th birthday. Life has never been the same. To see the pain our daughter is still to this day going through with losing her best friend & brother is the hardest to watch, especially when we are going through our own pain. I stay busy, positive, and cherish memories and times we had spent with him. Each day we just learn to exist without him.

I am so sorry for your loss. My son was in his own world after his sisters passed away - both 9 months apart. He was at a friend's apartment. When he walked outside, two people were saying stuff to him. He was taught to walk away from trouble if he could. As he walked away, the two shot him in the back of his head, and after he was down they shot him in his chest. We are awaiting trial on the two that were caught. One was caught that night and the other the next morning. No matter how we lose them, the pain is always going to be there.

You're story about your loss is so familiar. I, too, loss my baby on his way home from meeting with friends of a respectful group of men and women of a bike club. My baby lost his life in a wreck. My son was everything to me. Sixteen years ago I lost my youngest son. I was a single mom, so all I had was my son to help me through what I thought was the hardest thing I would ever go through, but I was wrong. Losing my other baby was.

I lost my son on October 22, 2015. He was killed coming home on the highway from trying to get initiated into some group. He had been drinking from 11am up till 11:45pm when he lost control of the car. He was only 22 years old. He was gonna be getting married this year, and I truly miss him every second that goes by. He has always been my rock, always watched over me, always had a smile on his face, and enjoyed life. That's why you should always tell your loved ones that you love them, because anything could happen and you might not get to tell them again you love them.

Kim, you are so right. I lost my son June 15th, 2016. It was the most painful experience ever in my life. My 2 boys are my life. I have so many regrets. I wish I had told him I loved him more. I rarely told him. When he graduated from the police academy, he was so proud of himself. I told him how proud I was too. Losing a son is like losing an arm or leg. You'll never be the same, but you learn to live differently.

I just lost my son 2 weeks ago today. My heart is broken in pieces... I don't know how I'm going to live on! My son James was involved in a horrific accident. He passed out at the wheel and lost control of his truck. His foot was stuck on the accelerator and smashed into an abandoned house, which started a raging fire! My 10 year old grandson, little James, was in the back seat and survived the crash. He tried to wake up his dad but couldn't, but he escaped the burning truck and house! It's a miracle! Our family is so thankful no one else was hurt! James was 30 years old and left 3 children: James (10), LeeAnna (7), and Mason (4). Whoever reads this, please say a prayer for our family. Thank you, and God bless.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I understand your pain because the only person that can understand is another Mother who has experienced this tragic loss of a child. On 5/20/01 I lost my youngest son Daniel. He was 18 and 2 weeks from graduation and 5 months to the day later 10/20/01 I lost my first born child, my oldest son Jack who died from side effects of chemotherapy. His cancer was gone but the chemotherapeutic meds destroyed both lungs. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and to any mother/father who has experienced this heartbreaking tragedy!

I am sorry for your loss. This is what happened to my son. He passed out at the wheel and his foot hit the accelerator and he was going over 100 when he hit an embankment. But he was trapped. They said his wallet was stolen by an emt that said he was gone and called off life flight and he hated my son. No one will help me. I have proof that he got pills from someone also. And he also was doing duster.

I am so sorry. I lost my youngest of 7 children in May of 2016. He was gone 2 hours, almost home when he passed out at wheel of car. He was huffing computer duster. He went to WalMart and had gotten 6 more cans. We did not know this when he asked for the car. He said he had an interview. When I got to the wreck they were not helping him. They said he was gone, but on the scanner they had a pulse. I was there in 5 minutes. They would not let me see him. I wish I would have ran to him anyway. I should have tried to help him. The tow truck and one with the jaws of life took forever to show up.

I'm soooo sorry!!! I lost my 18 year old oldest son on 10/02/2014 to a horrible motorcycle accident. Someone pulled out and turned in front of him and it was instant. He was and is the apple of my eye, and if it were not for Jesus whom he, I and my 2 remaining children believe in, I could not do it.

My heart aches for you and your family. I will pray and continue to pray for you all. I know that pain of losing a loved one. My family and I have gone through 3 deaths in a year and a half. My nephew was only 21, sleeping in his bed, when our home was burglarized. He was shot in the head and killed. Four months after that my brother died from cancer. Five months after that my father died of a heart attack. So I know your pain. But my strength is from God.

I'm so sorry Sandra for your loss. I'm going through the heartache of losing a son, too. I lost my baby boy Gage on September 30 at the age of 17 days old. It hurts so much and my broken heart goes out to you. Doing things in Gage's honor, helping others is helping me heal along with the love and support of family and friends. I'll definitely be praying for you and your family. I'm also asking folks for prayers. The pain of losing a child never goes away, but the Lord will lift us up.

There are so many sad and tragic stories that I have read here about the loss of a child, and my heart goes out to each and every one of you. My only adult son, Glen, passed away August 19, 2016. This is still raw pain for me and I feel turmoil. He had chronic kidney disease and high blood pressure, which led to a burst blood vessel in his brain. My heart sinks even writing about it. He had just turned 40 on the July 1st. He was a handsome, talented young man and was loved for his qualities. He was my only child, and since his death I live in a daze. The tears, guilt and sadness overwhelms me and I am broken. My life has changed forever, as he was my friend, and now it's empty. I believe I will see him again in the resurrection when the grave will give up the dead as the Bible explains. Our enemy death will be swallowed up for good, and the prospect of everlasting life on a paradise earth for those who choose it.

You are right that we need to have hope in the resurrection with the prospect of everlasting life on a paradise Earth. That is the only thing that I have to keep me alive now after the pain and guilt of living 28 years since that day. He was my only son. It's not right for a parent to bury their child. Prayers to all that go through this pain, which is the worst pain ever.

I am so sorry for your son's death. I feel your pain deeply in my heart. I lost my son August 29, 2016. He was 33 years old and overdosed on one stupid pill that killed him. A drug dealer gave him a pill that was laced with Fentynal, an elephant tranquilizer. He didn't know what was coming to him. That pill has hit the whole United States; a lot of young people are dying. It broke my heart because he's looking down saying, "Mom, what happened?"

It's been three weeks. I talk to him every day, and his spirit is with me; he's left me so many signs that he is okay: the bird at my window, his scent, and when I wake up I look at the time it's his birth date. I know that God told him to leave me signs. I feel better that he is with me. He's in a better place than we are, so smile and talk to him. He is listening to you.

My son Kristopher was taken from me at the age of 26. He was shot by someone who was supposed to be his friend. I saw him earlier that day. His friend picked him up from my house, we said goodbye and said I love you to each other. I jokingly told him to stay out of trouble. I had lost my job a couple of months earlier due to health, I was hospitalized soon after. I had only been out for a week when I got that dreadful knock on the door at 3am. I haven't been the same since.

I am a single mother who just recently lost my one and only child my son, Nicholas, on June 24, 2018. He was only 17 years old. He was at a friend's house, in a very well-to-do side of town. He and his friend were going to get something out of my son's car, when a SUV pulled up and the guy in the car said, "Give me your money." The boys ran and the guy fired his gun and shot my son in the back of his head. The shooter got nothing from the boys but will now face life in prison with no parole. My heart is so very very broken. The crying seems to never stop. I miss him every minute of every hour of every day. I feel this pain will never stop, never go away. It will never stop hurting. He was my whole world, my everything. Now I'm so lost. I can't even imagine how I will ever get through life without him. So many things I still wanted to show him, teach him, and I wasn't done seeing the world through his eyes. How will I ever get through this pain?

My son Kieron died two years, 11 months, and 14 days ago at the age of 29. It was three weeks before his 30th birthday.

He was a lovely, kind, handsome boy. His death has left me devoid of any emotion. I get up, I eat, and I sleep with help from pills. I do all the things I'm supposed to do. I'm still a mum to two other boys and two daughters. I'm a nan to nine and another one on way. I smile, I laugh, but it's not heartfelt or joyous anymore. I do it because it's expected from me. I wish or have wished more than once that I could be with him.

I've had people, friends, or who I thought we're friends, stop talking to me or visiting. I have no Idea why. I've had people tell me I should be feeling better by now. I don't feel better.

At times I hate my life now. I cry now when I'm on my own, because others, even family, think I should not be grieving as much or as often. I look at my son's photos and videos and wish I could turn the clock back.

Both of my sons died in 2001, Daniel 5/20/01 and Jack 10/20/01. I still grieve for them. There is not a day that goes by that I don't miss them. The pain for me never goes away; it's just different. Some days without warning it will hit me hard and at those times it feels like it just happened. It will get better, but don't let anyone tell you when or how to grieve the loss of your child. No one can understand unless they have walked a mile in your shoes. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Hi, I share your pain. You described exactly how I feel. My son, Arthur, was murdered three years ago. He was twenty and had his twenty first birthday in the hospital. I was there with him for two months praying he would survive, but God took him home. I now feel my life is a task. I miss my son so much. God bless all us mothers.

Oh, I am so sorry for the loss of your son. When reading it, it was as if I had written it myself. I, too, lost my dear son, my friend, my life. I have a daughter who I love so, so much, but I cannot help myself wanting to be with my son. He was only 27 years old, a month before his 28th birthday. Unlike you, I have no family, just me and my daughter. My parents died so suddenly after my son. I miss them so much, but it's nothing to how I feel about my son.

His anniversary is on the 31st of this month, Halloween night, a night we all used to laugh and joke. Now I cannot bear to go out the door. If it was not for my daughter, God only knows, but till the day I die I will yearn and be sad because no matter what happy event was to occur, nothing will replace my son. I am often told you are too young to be in the house and not go out. I feel like screaming, "My son was too young to be taken." My heart is broken. I miss him so much. God bless you and your family.

Find a grief recovery group. Those helpful to me in the early stages have been those whose loved ones share a similar cause of death & where the loved one was the griever's off-spring. However, if you cannot find that, other grief support groups dealing with the passing of a loved one will be more helpful than friends and family who are working to "get on" with their lives.

A Chinese restaurateur (who later told me he lost both parents and brother in one year) comforted me and said, pointing to the space beside me, "Your son's spirit is right here beside you. Would you cry in front of him?" I said, "No." He went on, "Well, he's right here. A bit of Chinese philosophy." People at support groups will understand your struggle and may be better able to help you move forward, but most will say that it is a project without end. God bless.

My handsome 24 year old son was murdered August 23, 2016. Born on Christmas Eve 1991 he was a joy to be around. Not a mean bone in his body. I had prayed for a baby boy and he was everything I envisioned and more. Blonde hair, blue eyes. Polite, funny. He had a short time of heavy drinking and did smoke pot. For the past two years was doing well, and had obtained his Associates degree. I can not believe someone shot him in the back through the heart and left him to die without calling an ambulance. How I would love to turn back time. His best friend, sister Rose and I (mama) have a heavy heart and a void that will never be filled in our life..

This is my story. I've read some of the stories and poems, all bringing tears streaming down my face. My throat tightens as I try to force back the tears.
In February of 2013, it was a Sunday morning, I'll never forget it. My daughter Angie gets the phone call, I didn't understand at first, I heard but I didn't hear. I asked her, what's going on? She said we gotta go now! Why? She says Tony's dead!!
I couldn't believe it. Shocked, dismayed.
Yes,it was true my baby boy was gone. That alone the pain was unbearable.
In August of 2014,I get a call from the emergency room. My oldest son.
He died. That was even worse. I lost my oldest son and my youngest son in 18 months. So I understand the pain everyday. So does my daughter. She lost two brothers. She tries to be strong for me, but she too has a hard time dealing with it too.

GOD BLESS All of you who lost their children. This is my story. My son Michail lost his life in the car accident on June 11 2014, one week before Father's Day and my birthday. I was on the way home from Ohio. We rented the house at the beach for our vacation. I was so excited to spend some time with my family, instead I used my vacation to bury my son. He was killed by the drunk driver. He was 23 years old. I miss him so dearly.

I feel the pain of every mother on this page. I lost my 26 year old son 6 weeks ago. He was involved in a car accident in Tanzania. He died in a foreign land, so far from home. His lasts words were Happy birthday mum and he died the day after my birthday. I keep expecting to see him come home from work, hear his voice. I cannot accept I'll never see him again. He has left a fiance and a two year old who asks for his daddy everyday. My friends avoid me, I don't know whether it's cuz they don't know how to deal with my grief. I try to be normal around people but deep down, the pain is unbearable. My son should have buried me, not me burying him. Life will never be the same again.

I know how you feel. We lost our 39 year old son 4 weeks ago today in an ATV accident, he was killed instantly. My heart is broken, the only thing that keeps me going Is knowing we need to be here for his 10 year old son. I still sometimes can't believe he is gone

I am so touched by the stories I have read here. I sometimes think that I am holding too long onto my son's memory and like one mother said here, I sometimes get some rude looks when I talk about my son to people I know even from family members. But reading this blog has helped a lot. My son passed away January 5, 2010 at 8pm. He had a massive seizure at 22.blame myself for not rushing him to the hospital when I noticed he was not quite right. We were on vacation and that is also another reason I blame myself for. For having taken him away on vacation. I miss him so much and mornings and bedtimes are worse. Before I fall off to sleep and soon as I wake, I wish I cremated his body cause I am always wondering how he looks like in his coffin. I wish I truly believed that one day I will see him but I have that feeling that dying is dying and final. I sometimes appreciate that I was his mother but other times, I regret having ever had him cause I failed him. I miss my son so much.

After reading your story about losing your son, you definitely struck a nerve with me. Any mother that has been through this can relate. There are times I feel so alone and have experienced some very unusual thoughts, that is until I read your story. I sleep with his pillows. Although they are too big, I wear his workout pants to bed. But the one that got to me the most is when you wished you had cremated him because you think what he looks like. I thought I was the only one that had thoughts like this. There are days when I go to his gravesite and just stand there. Never thought I would be standing at the foot of his grave. I still have this hope that he will walk into the house, I will turn around and he will be standing there. My son Gabriel was 36 when he died. Best looking guy on the planet. Being with him again cannot come soon enough!

I pray peace and strength. I too have lost the most important person in my life, my son Barquette Jr. He was a tender age of 17 and soon it will be 3 years, since he was taken to Heaven. I believe in Heaven which helps me get through each day. I spoke with a medium a couple of months ago and was able to speak with my son. I am a realist and things have to make sense for me, she was able to give me info that no one except my son would know. I cried sad tears, angry years and happy years. He is my only child. I continue to feel that my entire life is a dream, with none of my life being real. No one should have to live with such a great pain of losing a child. I pray for all of you, I pray for everyone who unfortunately understands my loss. If anyone ever needs to chat at anytime, please let's connect. No one understands this overwhelming pain we feel each day. So many want to help, but their quest to make it better, to make me better is impossible... for that so rely on my Faith in God. Much love!

I know how you feel. I just lost my only child, sunshine and my joy in a motorcycle accident a month ago. The pain is unbearable, the emptiness deep and not seeing his smiling face makes me restless. He was my everything - full of life and energy.

What comforts me to know is that he is sleeping. The Bible tells us that they are conscious of nothing - so I know he is not suffering and neither is your son. They are asleep and are in God's memory.

You will see him again soon - Jesus promised a resurrection to life, just as he resurrected Lazarus. You will see him right here on earth, in a beautiful paradise.

Rejoice in his memories and hang on to hope for it is very much alive.

email me if you want to know the scriptures as to what happens to us when we die. You will be so comforted.

I don't know if I am right, of course, but your actions did not determine the fate of your son. You weren't given that choice. And, neither was I. We are doomed to continue life on this planet. We obviously still have things to learn and experience. We will never be the same. We will never stop hurting. We will always miss him. I think it gets harder as time passes. I miss him more. I don't think time makes this any easier. People don't know how to handle grief. There is no one way. I refuse to not talk about Ryan as though he never existed! I speak of him just as I always did. Recalling things from his childhood or conversations that we have had. Maybe people think I'm in denial. Celebrate him. Keep his Memory very much alive. The spirit of your son was and will always be very much be a wonderful part of you! Thank you again for honestly putting your innermost thoughts on the table. That was a very brave thing to do. You are stronger than you realize.
Take Care......

Dear Nyora,
I felt the need to tell you that I firmly believe that there is no such thing as holding on to your sons memory for too long! May his memory live on within you for forever! I lost my Ryan on December 20, 2013. He was the driver, when his vehicle was struck by an oncoming SUV. It was at a notoriously bad intersection and there was no fault cited on the other driver or my son. It was an accident in the truest sense of the word. I also cannot place blame on any of those involved. You are not to blame either! I don't know why these things happen, but you were given the gift of 22 years of his life and that is to be treasured for eternity. I am not a religious person at all, but I feel that I am somewhat of a spiritual person who believes that there are things going on around us that is higher than ourselves.I believe that for whatever reason our sons time here on Earth had been completed and have moved on to bigger things.

My beloved son Shemrod Isaac was killed on Feb 23' 2015. He was a very good son and Father to his kids. He loved me, and his family. He was a handsome loving man. He had a promising music career. I know he had a lot of friends, but I was surprised how many people knew and loved him. My son was so welled loved that his good friends took care of all the funeral finances, they told my other son to just take care of putting the service together. So called family showed little or no emotional support but offered money which I refused. He was all I had, he was my best friend, he was much closer to me than his brothers.The light has gone out my life. I feel like I am in a trance while the world continues. Only who feel such pain and anguish knows it. I thank God for the 33 years he was with us.

I lost my son (Karlton) on September 30,2014, he was murdered (shot several times while I was on the phone with him). He just turned 35. My life would never be the same again. All I do is cry every time his name is mentioned. He was my life, my protector, my friend, my companion. I do not know how I am going to get through with this. His birthday is about to come around again. I missed him for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The hurt will not go away. I know I will never forget him. He was a good son, a good father and family man. I thank God for the 35 years he lived on earth with me.

My story resembles one down below. My angels name is Jonathan David McManus born Aug 20,1988. He entered Heavens gates July 26,2014 at the age of 25. He joined the marines May 2006. He was discharged after 4 yrs. active duty Sept 2010. He came home and lived with us for a while until he met someone He was involved in playing a game every weekend called drunken kickball His girlfriend was having a girls night and he was playing his game. She showed up where he was because she was mad where he was playing the game. They argued, she left. He later went home upon arriving there were lots of people there outside. He was very drunk. Went inside and seen all the lights on and no one inside. He was mad because of wasting electricity. He liked to conserve. He went outside after their arguing got his pistol out waving it around making threats to himself, he stumbles from being so drunk that the trigger was very easy that the gun went off and hit him in the back of his head. 911 was called. They tried to keep him. Transported to ER where he later passed. I feel like a part of me is gone. I will no longer be the same person. I know he was a Christian. So I look forward to the day I can see him again. I'm constantly looking for him to drive up, call or text. He is greatly missed by his family. Not a day that goes by that he's not thought about and tears shed.

My warrior is named Matthew. Matty was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma (cancer) on the May 20, 2014... thanks to a charity called the 11 Angels, I was guided by a lady doctor call Dr. Sue Walters who is a pain specialist. My Matty never complained about the fact that his condition was incurable (Matty at this stage was 18 years and 3 months). Never have I had the privilege of knowing such strength in someone so young. To my Matty, my warrior, my strength, my inspiration. Matty you are so loved and so missed. I hope that you were there on your special day to see all the people's lives that you touched in your so very short life span. You are truly an amazing angel that we all had the privilege of interacting with. Thank you for touching all our lives and for teaching us that no matter the moment we should always love laugh and embrace life. We live in your honour, our son, brother, nephew, grandchild. Loving you was the easiest emotion, your loss the hardest. You fought and baffled all the doctors and the world against all odds. Thank you, my Matty. Love and miss you so very much. No words explain my loss. May God's angels guide you and keep you safe. See you at the pearly gates.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Your Matty must have been a remarkable young man. The spirit and strength of these young people facing the end of their life is truly amazing. We lost our Jimmy to Medullablastoma on March 1, 2008. He made it almost 6 months after he was diagnosed. 6'2" and 225 lbs. and determined to live. Sadly it wasn't to be. I miss him very much and I have fond memories of Jimmy as you have of your Matty. I pray God's peace for you and your family.

My son was born 18 August, 1985, in Hanford, CA. He departed this world just a few short days ago, on 08 August 2014. Some may say that his life was too short, others that he led a full life. As for myself, I have never been so proud and elated as when he joined the US Army in 2006, and continued a tradition of service of our family. He was, as are all young men of 20 or so years, full of the fascination of his future and the anticipation of new and wonderful events and history. As a troop in the Army, he elected to serve as a part of the Field Artillery, "The King of Battle". His pride in his ability in rapidly learning new skills, his attention to detail both out in the field as well as in the barracks, was noted by many, and surpassed by none. He received the Army Commendation Medal for being a bright and superior example to those new soldiers just entering the service, a figure whose superlative example of abilities and excellence was a challenge for them to try and match.
During his slightly less than eight years in the Army, he progressed in gaining new skills and advancing in rank at a rate rarely seen, at any time in the history of the Army. After less than a full eight years, he achieved the rank of Staff Sargent, an accomplished that brought him to the fore in recognition by both his fellow NCO's and his superior officers. It was through his dedication, and his real fascination with "his" Army and the traditions it embodies that propelled him throughout his short career in the service.
Tragically, on 08 August 2014, he died. Some will claim it was a suicide, but they are wrong. Yes, he did shoot himself, when he was drinking and arguing. Yes, he did pick up a semi-automatic pistol, and placed against his head. I believe, however, he was in his own way, trying to convey a point to someone, and that he knew he could stop at any time. Unfortunately, the pistol was a relatively new one, and the hammer release was half of what he was used to having. Whatever the reason, he did shoot himself, leaving behind many, many grieving family and friends, and especially me, his father. In the weeks just prior to this happening, we had made plans for a fishing trip, as well as deer and turkey hunting. He was proud of his promotion, his upcoming re-enlistment, and transfer to Washington state. His wife, Wendy, and he had made plans to start a family.
Now, he's no longer physically with us. I cry, most every day, for the loss of our companionship and his future. I must say this, however: as long as there is one person that remembers his name, laughs about some of his actions and practical jokes, sees him in there mind's eye, he will never be gone. He's just stepped out for a few minutes for a beer or Pepsi. He'll be back, and we will be with him, sooner than we could ever imagine. Good-bye, son. Keep the motor running for us

I lost my youngest son Aaron only three days ago due to complications from diabetes. He was only 23 years old. Right now I feel every emotion, yet at the same time I feel nothing at all. I'm angry at him because he didn't have to die. He chose to ignore his diabetes, even though the doctors warned him. I told him that he was slowly killing himself and that a mother shouldn't have to bury her babies. Why didn't he listen? The pain inside my heart is indescribable. I'm afraid to cry because I don't think I'll ever stop. How am I supposed to resume my normal life after this?? I miss you so much Aaron. I wish I could see you smile just one last time.

My son was a procrastinator and ignored his signs of diabetes. He was in Texas and we live in PA. It was Nov. 25th 2012 (anniversary around the corner). Your story mirrored mine and I just wanted to let you know. I held my son and he passed in my arms 20 minutes later. I feel for you so much. May you find peace. I miss David every day.

To all who have lost a loved one most especially a child, my deepest sympathies to you. I lost my younger boy on 15 Aug 2014 under tragic circumstances. He had just completed his 22nd birthday on 3 Aug. He committed suicide due to the callous treatment of the Police. He was beaten up because he questioned why they were hitting some stray dogs and a case of drunken driving was fostered on him. I'm a single mom and have an older boy aged 27 years. We went hunting for him and eventually through his friends came to know where he was taken. My older son compromised with the Police personnel and got my son out. The whole way home he was crying, we reassured him not to worry and that everything was sorted out. I could see that he was punched on the mouth due to his swollen discolored lip. We didn't even have the slightest indication that he would commit suicide. We reached home around 2 am on the 14 Aug. I asked him to have his dinner and go to bed. My older son and myself got into bed as it was an exhausting day. I got up with a start at 3:24 am on the 15 Aug and found that he was not in the bedroom. On searching the house I found he had hanged himself. It was traumatic for me because part of me knew he had gone, and yet part of me still had hope. I couldn't even get him down. We managed ultimately get him down and rush him to a hospital, but he was declared dead on arrival. The Police refused to file an FIR as I had stuck to the above version. All this while it was getting close to 1 pm. His body was lying at a Government Hospital mortuary and post mortem could not be done due to police not filing an FIR. He was kept on a stretcher in a room which was not even air conditioned. A friend advised me that the mortuary conditions were not good in preservation of bodies and the way the police were passing the buck it would take at least 2 to 3 days to file have an FIR filed. He advised me to withdraw my complaint and give a different version eliminating the police beating and make it as though there was an indication of a misunderstanding but now everything has been compromised between us and the Police. It broke my heart, but realizing that it would be better to bury my son appropriately rather than waiting for an inordinate time and allowing his body to deteriorate I withdrew my compliant. I completed his funeral on the 16 Aug evening. On the way to the cemetery his body was already badly deteriorating. It was unbearable to sit beside his coffin all the way to the cemetery and see his beautiful face so badly discolored. I think I did the right choice to bury my son with dignity. I am still unable to come to terms with this huge loss. He was my rock and we had an extra special kind of relationship right from the moment he was born. I will never get to see his children or enjoy the jokes, vacations or simple treats. I am unable to look at his pictures and see those twinkling eyes and naughty smile.

My deepest sympathies to all who've lost their piece of heart. My 9 year piece of heart, Ogden, passed away on Jan 11, 2016. I clearly recall that day. He called me up when I was enroute to Changi airport, and the first thing he said was, "Papa you are bringing in a surprise for me, nah?" Yes, I promised him a surprise on my return. I remember that giggle when Og got excited every time I returned from a tour.

On reaching Mumbai, I was expecting my brother at the airport, but there was no reply as I called. I returned home by a cab, and my wife told me that Jose and Og went to pick me up. After a long 3 hours, my brother called me up and told me that their car had met with an accident, and I rushed to the nursing home where they were. I was worried about Og in ITU. The staff informed me to see my child who was in convulsion, and the doctor informed me of him being medically no more. I cannot tell how I saw Og in his last moments. His presence still lingers here, and the pain will not be gone.

These stories are so sad. I feel your pain. I'm sorry for the lost of all the sons mentioned here. I lost my oldest son on 07/07/2013. He was 27, I had him at 7 months, This happened on the 7th day of the 7th month, 7th day of the week. His burial plot ends in 7. The #7 means spiritual completion. My birthday is 01/23. I believe his death date means the end of our life together. The day he died he told me that he had a relationship with GOD and said he prays and read the bible. It was one of our last conversations before he was murdered. It's horrible to think about. My life will never be the same. I often go to his grave site and sit on his bench, looking in the sky just wishing he would appear. Being without him hurts so bad. I feel bad that I'm here and he is not. I know I have to go on because I have two other kids that I love just as much as I did Glenn. He leaves behind a younger brother and sister and 3 sons. My son was so loved, had no enemies. I've never seen a home going service as big as his. It really showed me how many people truly loved my son. It showed how much of a good man I raised. He loved us and we loved him. He knew that that helps me some. I'll be praying for strength for us all. Everybody be blessed.

I read your story Lisa Clark. I too lost my son on 7/7/13. My son, Ryan, was 24. His motorcycle # was 777. He too left behind a younger brother and sister. He was such a remarkable person to all that knew him. He will always serve as an example for how a life should be lived! In Christianity when a number is repeated three times, it means perfect. So 777 means perfect complete completion. I really want to connect with you Lisa. Finding some reassurance of hope in the horrible depths of our grief. I hope we can visit sometime.

My heart is aching reading everyone's sad stories about loosing their son. My son Craig died 2 years ago 29/4/12 , He was a fit healthy boy with his whole life ahead, he has 2 sons Joshua and Riley who now have to live without truly knowing their daddy's love. My son went to hospital the day before with football injury and was sent home, later doctor was called to the house who diagnosed anxiety. I found my son dead after going to collect his 2 little boys from his ex. I knew he was dead but instinctively I tried to give him CPR hoping for a miracle. my grandsons were watching me, it still haunts me to this day. I still don't have answers as to why my son was sent home to die. Post mortem showed he had a ruptured spleen and my son died an agonizing death. He was my first born, my first true love, my best friend and soul mate. 2 years have passed and I still hurt like it was that first day I found him. I love you son from the bottom of my broken heart xxxxxx

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!

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.

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.

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

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...

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

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.

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.

I just lost 20 year old son on the 11th October, 2013, a week before his 21st birthday which should have been on the 18th October. He feel down from the 14th floor of his apartment. Until now the Police is investigating as we suspect he was killed as he called me and his younger brother asking for help. I have 5 kids and he was my middle child. He cooks for me and is a very good boy. Please God, who would kill such a timid and innocent boy who did not do any harm to anyone. I miss his voice, his cooking, his teasing. Everything reminds me about him and it hurts so bad. I feel like I going crazy. Today is my 48th birthday and I really do not wish it to be my birthday. I wished I could be with him. I was always there for my children since the day they were born. I feel so guilty for not being there for me when someone was hurting him. My younger son went but he was 16 minutes too late. Please pray for my family and my son so that we could find justice.

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.

May 18th 2012 was the day I lost not only my first born son Ben but that too was the day I lost my mind!! Went down to Tampa from Pensacola with supposed friend Joe. 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 !!!!

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

I hurt for all the women who have lost their son. My son Andrew Lee McFadden killed himself June 5 2011. I cry so much and my heart is so very heavy. I miss him every day I think about him every day. Can some one tell me when this hurt will go away. My family says the hurt will get easier but I really don't want it to go away, I'm afraid that if I don't think of him daily I might just explode.

I lost my 11 1/2 yr old son, 10 months ago. A drunk driver blew through a red light and hit us. The impact was on the passengers side where Noah sat. I escaped unharmed. I know God has a plan for my life. God is who carries me daily it is through his strength I find peace. I know one day I'll see my son in Heaven. One week after the accident I took a picture on the Amtrak and I turned it upside down and there was an image of Noah formed in the clouds. God Bless You all Jennifer.

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 feel the pain that all of us are going through it's a pain that no one will ever ever understand till they have to go through losing a child. I'm a single mother of three but I lost my oldest son who was 13 years old on May 20th 2010 due to a ATV accident. I will never forget that day it was the worst day of my life and that my life changed and will never be the same. Michael was such a wonderful son and a good boy he had his whole life ahead of him and had so much to look forward to. He would of been in the 10th grade this year and I so look forward to seeing him go to the prom and just watch him grow up into the young man that he was. I think of him each and everyday and still ask god why? I still wake up everyday and see that beautiful smile that he always had on his face no matter what kind of day he was having. I miss him more then words can say and love him with every beat of my heart .Love you son and miss you so much to. Love you with all our hearts Mommy and brothers Brett, Jacob

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.

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

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 these moms feel. I lost my oldest son Frank Nicholas Leist age 17 in 2009 from a house fire. Nicholas didn't make it out. 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. God Bless the parents that have lost their son or daughter to the great heavens above. I love you my Nicholas son and I miss you so much it hurts!!

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

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 am so sorry for your loss, and I fully understand what you feel.
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.

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.

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 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

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.

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.

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 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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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

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.

He had been trucking for a mere 3 1/2 months when he was taken from me and his family. He died in Granitville SC...It was a train derailment toxic chlorine gas filled the air...It took him in his sleep!!!! It was January 6 2005 and it still feels like yesterday!!!! I still have many questions and expect him to walk through the door or hear his voice on the phone.I know in reality this will never be....My heart is half of what I had...I miss and love you JOEY!!!!

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 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

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 lost my wonderful son at the tender age of 26 years old. My heart aches every day. I will never see him marry, have my grandchildren, laugh, cry, fuss, hug, have talks about life 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 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 .

hello my heart goes out to all you parents that have lost your sons, my son Robert was shot in senseless drive by shooting that left him a quadriplegic like Christopher Reeves after a surgery Robert regained use of his arms but not hands, but after 7 yrs of living this way he couldn't handle life so he took all his medication (Oxycodone) and died, he left 2 daughters and a wife Robert was my only child he was 34 yrs of age, and I'm totally devastated!!! he passed away Oct 28th 07 I just feel so lonely and sad I was his only parent his father also passed away, I too need someone to talk to!!! I feel like I have been stripped of my title (Mother) and I feel like a failure because he didn't feel like he could come to me to tell me how bad he was feeling maybe I could have helped him, so I blame myself for not being there for him and not seeing the signs!!! I miss him terribly I thought of suicide many times but that will not bring him back!! than my grand daughters wont have a dad or a grandma!

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

My best friend and confidant and most of all my son, passed away nine months ago. I nearly died when he was born and I felt a closeness to him all 44 years of his life. He had many near death experiences, the cord was wrapped around his neck when he was born several times and his fiance shot him with a twelve gauge shotgun in 1999. God brought him back to me from Colorado to Michigan in 2012 for two years. He stopped drinking and smoking, but then he started having seizures. The medical examiner wrote on the death certificate that cause of death was undetermined, but I know it was due to a seizure. I wish God would've taken me instead, as he was such a kind loving person, and things were starting to go so good for him finally. But God just loaned him to me (and all of us) for those extra years. Son, you're missed and loved so very much. I look forward to seeing you again in heaven, as I know that's where you are.
