Marty Loflin gone from me for 2 years

(Bear Creek, NC, USA)
October 3, 1975 - January 19, 2010
My beautiful, 34 year old son Marty died on January 19, 2010 at First Health of the Carolinas in Pinehurst, NC. He walked into that facility healthy and left 14 days later in a body bag. He had been told by a cardiovascular surgeon there that he desperately needed an aortic valve replacement. He couldn't understand why he had no symptoms, but because of their insisting that he was in danger, he agreed to the procedure. After performing the procedure Marty suffered a stroke.He stayed in a coma until his death Jan. 19th 2010. A nurse at the facility said I would never have peace with how my son died. She is right, I will never. Marty is a wonderful son. He was a compassionate caring, and peaceful person who loved to do things to make others feel better. He loved all sports, especially UNC basketball and football. Marty enjoyed skiing and spending time at Ocean Isle Beach, NC. I miss him so much my heart aches with pain. Each day without him is agony and suffering. I will spend all the time I have doing things to honor Marty and holding accountable those who cause harm and pain to others. I Love Marty and miss him every second of every day.
