Just like in the Movies. That knock on the Door! I love you my Stephen alway!
by C.D. Easton
It was his 34th Birthday June 12, 2012 having fun at the beach enjoying life with friends.I had called him about 2:00 to wish him a Happy Birthday as our call ended he said " Love you Mama...Always" As they where coming home a terrible accident took his life instantly a little before 8:00 p.m..He was the only one.
Around 11;00 p.m. there was that knock on the door... I was already asleep.They informed my husband and then asked if he wanted them to tell me. He awoke me and told me to come into the living room. As I came around the corner there where two State trooper standing there. Not really awake they told me. I said not my son what kind of car? Black Jeep.The rest is a blur.
We had to inform his older sister who was only minutes away from the Hospital they had taken him to but she drove 35 miles to come and get us.No one spoke, all silent on the way there. When we arrived He looked like he was sleeping and had a small smile on his face. I started hitting him on his chest telling him to wake up--- this isn't funny son WAKE UP!( His girlfriend was a RPN Nurse and He the Jokester.) I was wishing It was a sick joke and not for real. My Daughter said Mom stop! I laid my head on his chest and said I'm sorry son. I love you---Always.
I still don't understand why God would take a beautiful young man in perfect health that did so much for his Family, friends and Community. There where over 500 people at his Services.People came from over 3000 miles away to be there.I was proud and will alway be of my son.
Today is Halloween one of his favorite Holidays and a hard one for me as I'm sure they all will be without him. RIP my Son.I will LOVE YOU ALWAYS.
