6/16/2006 WAS THE WORST DAY IN MY LIFE. A LITTLE AFTER 6 PM i FOUND OUT MY 19 YEAR OLD SON HAD DIED AT 5:02 PM...AS THE DAYS PASSED I FOUND OUT THAT MY SON JOHNNY BAIST HAD BEGUN USING HEROIN A COUPLE MONTHS PRIOR. I ALSO FOUND OUT THAT HE ALWAYS "SNORTED" IT UNTIL 6/16/2006 WHEN HE DECIDED HE WANTED TO TRY SHOOTING IT UP...THERE WAS APROX. 5 OR 6 PEOPLE THERE THAT DAY AND ALL KNEW BY 2:38 (ACCORDING TO CELL PHONE RECORDS) THAT HE HAD OVERDOSED.YET THOSE PEOPLE SPENT 2 HOURS COMING UP W/ A STORY AND CLEANING UP THE HOUSE OF ALL DRUG RELATED ITEMS. THEY JUST LEFT HIM GASPING FOR EACH BREATH FOR OVER 2 HOURS. BY THE TIME PARAMEDICS ARRIVED JOHNNY'S HEART HAD JUST STOPPED. ACCORDING TO HOSPITAL RECORDS AFTER INJECTING HIM W/ A DOSE OF NARCAN HIS HEART BRIEFLY RESTARTED. HOWEVER AFTER A FEW MINUTES HIS HEART HAD STOPPED. HE DIED AT 5:02 PM ON 6/16/2006. NOW THAT IT IS 5 YEARS LATER I STILL HAVE NOT RECOVERED FROM THE SUDDEN AND TRAGIC DEATH OF MY ONLY SON. I STILL CRY FOR HIM EVERYDAY AND DREAM OF THE TYPE OF MAN HE WOULD BE NOW...THE PAIN OF LOSING MY SON HAS BEEN MORE THAN I CAN BEAR AT TIMES. JOHNNY WAS AN EXTREMELY TALENTED ARTIST AND HE WAS ATTENDING SCHOOL FOR GRAPHIC ARTS AND ANIMATION AND HAD SO MUCH POTENTIAL IN LIFE IS GONE FOREVER BECAUSE HE MADE A STUPID DECISION AND ALSO TRUSTED THE SCUMBAGS HE WAS WITH.

Today would be my only son's 32nd birthday. Like your son he overdosed on heroin. Like you, I will never get over this. Never! For me the hardest part is not having a chance to say goodbye. Not being there for him. I remember this day he was born just like it just happened. I asked God for a boy before I even got pregnant and I was blessed. I was so happy on this day 32 years ago. Now on this day I hang my head and cry because this never should of happened. My birthday is 11 days from now. Where we live it is custom to celebrate the dead. We will do that this year. I have watched this event but I have never been involved. I never thought I would celebrate my son's life on my birthday. Now this will become an annual event so that people will know that maybe he wasn't perfect he was loved very much. May god touch your heart and give some comfort,because He is the strongest thing you can hold on to. With the blind faith that he will welcome you at the end of your life journey. God Bless You.

Mom,

My condolences to you. I can't began to comprehend how you feel as a Mom. That is something only a mother can feel. I don't know that. Your loss is senseless.

If you son could talk to you he would tell you how sorry he is for putting you and your family through this. He didn't see the danger in his generations choice of cocktails. It was innocent fun at the time as hard as it is for you to understand that.

Those were no friends of your son's. I hope you got justice for him. All they had to do was call 911. How selfish of all of them. The most all of them at that time would have gotten if anything would have been a slap on the wrist for their hard partying ways. I just can't wrap my head around not calling 911.

Unfortunately, your son's life was cut short from it but he has graduated to heaven now the best part of all. Visit his grave, place flowers, trinlets, talk to him and in this way you are honoring him and his memory.

Try to go on. He would want you to do that. If he could do a do over he would. He loves you and will always be with you. You will meet again. If you have other children love them. They need you.

God bless you during this very difficult time in your life. You may read my post under "Poster Child for Tragedy. Hugs and prayers.
