I don't normally discuss private things like this... but I am sure there are people who want to share but don't know what to say. I am sure there are people who can offer healing thoughts if I let them in.

Monday February 2, my ONLY biological son, Jason, (age 27) was killed in an car accident. I have one biological grandson, who happens to look pretty much like his father. My grandson, James will be the big focus of my healing aspect as I move through this horrible ordeal.

I am lucky to have very close step children who are really not step children... but REAL children in my heart. My family has been brought closer together through all of this. I have other grandchildren who bring lots of great happiness in my life.

My advice to all - hug your loved ones and tell them what they mean to you.

I was lucky enough to have spent one last wonderful weekend with Jason and the rest of the family ... and was able to tell him I love him and gave him a big hug that Saturday evening before he went home. Little did I know at the time... that would be the last hug.

Deb,
I just read your post as I am a new member. We lost a child, and everyone deals with the loss differently. I hope this finds you on an "up" day. Please do not hesitate to share your pain with those who love you as they will help you. This is such a blow. We never expect to lose our children. I don't know whether this helps you at all, but know that people who don't even know you care about you!

Deb, I know it has been too soon for the pain to lessen much, but it will get easier as time passes. The loss will always be a part of you, but you will learn how to deal with it and focus on the happy times and fond memories. James will help you find the strength you need, and other family members and friends will always be there to offer a little extra support in difficult times. Hang in there!

The good Lord calls on all of us to be strong and to give freely to him those that he needs.What I can't understand is how our world - our lives - have become so "busy" that we seldom find the time to spend with those that mean so much to us. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family during this period of loss. You are so fortunate that you DID have time for a hug and a "I Love You" before he left. May the goodness of your friends and family help you find peace in the coming days.

I can't even begin to imagine what you must be going through at this time. I have two boys, and I know that I would lose a piece of my heart if something so tragic should ever occur. You have reminded me that I need to slow down and appreciate the little things that are often taken for granted. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Words cannot express the emotion. Please know that you and your family are in my prayers and in my heart.
