Michael was the best son i could have ever asked for. He was always so loving and so good. It will be 2 years since my son passed away from a undetected heart problem. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. He was always so healthy i still cant believe this has happened. Our family will never be the same. My husband and i and his 4 sisters are forever devastated without him.

Lost my only son Michael
by: Pam

Your title caught my eye...MICHAEL ♥. I too lost my only child MICHAEL 7.11.10. He was 25 years old and like you my life is forever changed. Devastating! I’m not good with words or giving advise about losing a child, but want to send you hope for the future.

Hi Linda, I can relate to your case, my beloved and only brother died suddenly 2 months ago from a heart condition, he was so healthy, such a beautiful young man, always laughing, he was only 26 and with a bright future ahead like your Michael, my whole family is devastated, mom couldn’t stop crying, nothing will be the same, I cannot imagine my future without my brother, everyone keeps saying that time will heal this, but dear Lord this is getting harder every day…Why? Why this happen to good people? Is the question that drill my head every day…the pain is unbearable, I have tried to resume my normal activities like work but is impossible…coming daily to this grief site and reading all the stories is the only time of peace on my day, at least I realized I am not alone, you are not alone…wish you all the best to you and your family.

I am so sorry for the loss of your dear son. I too lost my only son Michael 2 years ago (he was 26yrs old) from a heart condition. He was infact my only child. He died in his sleep. We will never be the same, this does change us forever. I pray for you as I pray for me that it can be manageable. I think I feel that it is as though grief has carved out its very own spot in my being. Its always there, its never going away as it should not, not for our children. We make room for this grief because it comes from our love for them and it is awful that they are not here. Sometimes I deny the grief because if I do not I would just die. Its okay to do that cause it will always be there and I can go there anytime, in my time, my rules. Hope you can have a better day tomorrow.
