Not the natural order of things
by: Virginia Peck

It is not the natural order of life for a child to predecease their parent. I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my daughter over 6 years ago. Everyone deals with the loss of a child differently. When my daughter died, I resolved to not let my grief over losing her cloud the love I have for her sister, my husband and my grandchildren. I did not want to send them a message that she was the most important person in my life and their place was secondary. I have tried to re-direct the love I directed to her to the rest of my family and show the love I have for them even more so. The last words we spoke were, "I love you." and "I love you too mom." That brings some solace. Just take it a day at a time. The loss is too raw, too fresh to even consider how you feel. Know you are not alone.

Jennifer I am so sorry for your loss of your young precious son to an untimely sudden death. As a Mom your heart will hurt for a long time as you try to process your loss and how short your son's life was.
This is a mom's worst nightmare. The thought of losing a child at any age. We are not meant to live with this fear so we soldier on taking care of our loved one's on a wing and a prayer for their safety and long life. It is a parent's hope that her children will live long happy lives. But this is not the case. WE are losing our children more and more at a young age. The earth is claiming the lives of many children. You can feel secure that you gave your son the best life you could and that you told him You loved him in words and deeds. This is all a parent can do. Only time will heal those scars and dry your tears. This is a very painful journey you and many parents take when losing a child. May God comfort you and strengthen you in the days, months, and years ahead as you recover from your grief.

Our last words...
by: Lisa

Dear Jennifer, your words touched me.
My son called my four year old grandson to say he was on his way, but he never arrived.
Instead he hit a particularly nasty piece of road and died.(We discovered later that road had already taken four other young motorcyclists lives).
The police tried to tell me his helmet wasn't fastened, but they didn't know Aaron. (He was involved in a previous incident where he knew his helmet saved his life.)

Nearly six years have passed now and I've learnt so much about myself through my grief.
There are times when I blame myself... If I'd been a better mother etc.
If I'd gone to visit when I could have...
So many regrets if I'm honest.
But I do know my last words were: LOVE YOU as we hung up the phone.

The coroner told me if he'd lived he would have been quadriplegic and I KNOW with every ounce of my being that he'd have hated that.
A stranger was at my son's side. She heard the crash from her kitchen.
I found out about her when I went to buy a local newspaper and the shop girl thought she recognised me from the front page, but it was the stranger.
How Divine was that? A total stranger who could be my twin was at my son's side.

I'm a devout believer that there's more to life than the one we see, and live here on Earth,(and I accept a lot of people think I'm crazy).
It makes me happy to imagine the existence he knows now.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your son Matthew - it is one of the most um-imaginable experiences on earth. Please know that you are not alone in your suffering; we are many. My only child died from an accidental overdose on June 9, 2014. He was the love of my life.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
