On 5/28/11 my 24yr old son was at a friends house all nite working on a car they were to race the following nite. Mike was up all nite (his job was 3rd shift) so he was used to that. At sometime during the nite everyone one else went to sleep except for Mike. I had his beautiful daughter Alivia that nite and she poked herself in the eye with a stick and when she woke up her eye was swollen shut. It was very early but I thought I would try calling my son. It was 7:42 am the 29th and he answered and I told him about Alivia and he said him and her mama would take her when he got home. He told me he had just started walking home which is about a 6 mile walk, without any sleep makes it harder. I told him I would pick him up it was on my way to their house anyway, he said no. I asked him which way he was walking and he said along the railroad track, I said "Michael Scott get off them tracks NOW" and of course Mike being Mike had to argue and said "mom its not like I'm a 90yr old man and going to fall down or anything" I said "Mike I love you get off them tracks people get killed like that PLEASE" and Mike's last spoken words were "mom I love you and I will be ok" he was killed by a train 30 min later.....I don't know how to go on at this point the sadness is sooooo deep and horrible I'm sick I have lost 14 lbs since he died 19 days ago. I need help and support. Michael was my heart and I was his, he was to be married aug 20th and has a beautiful 3 1/2 yr old daughter. He was a firefighter and a 1st responder (we both are) the pain the pain.........Jackie
