My #1 Duke Fan A Home-Cameron Crazy went home to be with the Lord

We lost our son on May 25, 2011 after having a seizure that lasted so long it caused his brain to swell and had no blood flow to his brain. He was then considered brain dead. It has been so hard for all of us. He left a wife and a 6 year old daughter who was a Daddy's girl. It has left such a large hole in my heart. He was a wonderful son and he loved the Lord and his family; but it has been so hard to go forward. He was a huge Duke basketball fan and loved watching them play. He would clap, shout, dress in his Duke clothes and would tell everyone he met that Duke was the best. We haven't been able to watch a game this year but hopefully we will sometime this season. I dread the holidays without him. He always read the Christmas story on Christmas Eve and we would always talk about the true meaning of Christmas; the birth of Jesus. This year our oldest grandson is 10 and he is going to read the Christmas story and it is going to be our tribute to David. We miss him so much. He was 27 years old and I thank God that I had him for those years; but I wasn't ready to give him up. God was ready for him that day in May. May God be with all of you that have lost a child. Nothing will ever replace that emptiness but through the help of family and friends praying for us we know we will make it. God Bless each and everyone of you. Libby and Tim

Grieving mom
by: Shirley

I too am a grieving mom. Dimitri was 23 and died of leukemia 16 months ago. This is my second Christmas without my beautiful boy and it is worse than the first one. I was numb last Christmas...this year reality has set in. Dimitri was a BIG Ohio State Buckeye fan. He also had the jersey and would root like crazy for them. Whenever they played in California he would get tickets. One time he was in the hospital and had tickets for the Rose Bowl game and they weren't going to let him out. I begged and pleaded and his doctors finally relented. He went to the game and had the biggest grin on his face. He was right back in the hospital after but it gave him so much motivation. The only thing that has sustained me since he died are my other children and The Compassionate Friends. I go to my local chapter meetings every month. I also participate on their facebook page and another facebook group called Grieving Mothers. It helps to talk about my feelings. I will pray that God wraps His loving arms around you and your family this Christmas and brings you some peace.
