Prayers for you
by: Tim's mom

I,too, lost my son to murder. He was 28. The police know who murdered him. I don't know if it makes it easier or not, as the men have not yet been arrested. They still live their lives as if nothing happened. I live in another state. My son's father lives in the same community as my son and these men live(d). He has to deal with this injustice daily. We are frustrated with the criminal justice system. Although law enforcement appears to be on "our side," the process is so slow. I understand your frustration, anger and sadness. I am praying for you and for justice for your son. Tim's mom

Your Poem
by: Tomeko

Cynthia...I know how you feel about losing your son, I just recently lost my son in March of this year. He wasnt murdered he had a medical condition but his death took us by surprise we didnt expect it. He was 24 years old and what make it so hard is im the one who found him. He looked just like his father im so thankful we are no longer together cause I dont think I would be able to deal with that kind of pain daily. When I was reading your poem that you wrote yourself it reached my heart cause it was like my son was speaking to me through those very words you typed. It brought tears to my eyes reading it. If you can find me im under my first adult child. There is a picture of us on there I had to put it on there cause he had such a contagious smile even when I look at it I cant help but smile back. I hope you do find out who did it so you can have some closure but one thing I do know is whoever did this is gonna pay dearly through God. I will keep you in prayer as I have to do the same for myself.
