Missing you Michael

Our 26 year old son Michael passed away unexpectedly May 19th 2007. He just got out of bed and collapsed on the floor. The paramedics tried for some time to revive him with no luck. The Medical Examiner said he died from sudden cardiac death. That was something I had never heard of. I (we) miss Michael every single day. It has not gotten any easier for me. What I would give for just one more day with him.

Love you Michael forever and always
Mom, Dad, Matthew & Ethan

Your son
by: Kate

I'm so sorry you lost your son. I too,know this horrible heartbreak. Nothing is ever the same. It is soon 17 months. That my son died at 39. His dad died 20 years ago. Death is so hard!! It changes us, and we are never the same again. My heart goes out there as I walk the path of losing too. God be with us all.

The loss of your Son
by: Wendy (Kyle's Mom)

May 19th is a bad day for me as well. My 21 year old Son died suddenly on May 19, 2009. His death was attributed to a recall that happened after his death. The recall was an infusion set that he was wearing at the time of his death for his insulin pump to control his Type I diabetes. I wish you wellness on your grief journey. Many people to support you on this website.

Missing you Michael
by: Doreen UK

Sharianne I am so sorry for your loss of your young son to a sudden death 7yrs. ago. It is a parents biggest worry and concern to lose a child/adult child. After laying my mother to rest 11yrs. ago I could not bear to see her lying in her coffin, not knowing that 9yrs. later I would be laying my husband to rest. I have 3 Adult children and I worry all the time if I should ever lose any one of them. My heart goes out to you for having lost your son who would have been the same age as my youngest daughter is now. One just doesn't know what will happen from one day to the next. This is a loss that no mother will ever get over. I hope the pain of your grief gets less over time and that you can feel comfort and peace to continue living.

I am sad to hear of the loss of your son, Michael. Sudden cardiac arrest is how my wonderful husband of 43 years died also. It will soon be 17 months since he died. It is a shocking and sudden end to our happy lives when SCA occurs---any passing of our loved ones is shocking. I wish I could say that time has made it easier to face each day but I can't say that and be honest. As the weeks pass by I miss my husband more; the sorrow goes deeper and I am still in shock at times realizing that I don't have my only love by my side anymore. I am able to take care of myself and my home and be a part time caregiver for my elderly parents. Some people might think I am moving on and doing better but I cry almost every day and night. My heart breaks even more when I hear a song that my husband and I listened to, a certain smell or the way the sky looks at any given moment. I will never be happy again; I will be able to function in life but the joy left me when my husband died on Nov 18, 2012. I understand your longing for your dear son; I wish I could make our sorrows less harsh and more bearable, but we carry deep scars of having our hearts broken. May God help us all.

Dear Shariann,

I am so sorry to read about your son. My father died the same way last year. I will never get over the shock of it. I know how hard it is, and I understand what you are feeling. Wishing you peace and comfort, Barb
