My Angels

It has been four weeks since we had a knock at the door from the police officer. He was here to tell us of the death of our precious 26 year old son. The policeman gave us the phone number of the county coroner and said we were to phone him.

Adam was killed instantly when he rolled his truck and received major blunt force trauma to his head. We didn't get to see him for 2 1/2 days. It was good to see him as it felt as if he was still here on earth with us. It was a time I had always dreaded, having to go to the morgue to view one of my sons.

30 years ago we buried our stillborn son and have almost recovered from that hurt. This pain is different but so similar too. Both sons had such potential to make the world a better place. Our family is just not the same and will never be the same. We move one foot in front of the other and hope for the best.

thank you for listening. -K-

Add another angel to the list

That would be my angel, Dimitri. He was only 23. He suffered for 2 years with cancer and other health issues. He had been such a healthy robust young man. Just started college, had a girlfriend, coached youth basketball, hung out with his two brothers and two sisters.....a normal life. Normal that is, until he was struck down with an illness that no one could define. Leukemia was the final straw in the two year roller coaster we were on. August 9th, 2010 he left us. I am coping but not well. I don't understand why we have to lose our children. It's not right. It's not fair. I just want to scream and scream and scream.

One foot in front of the other is the only way I can get through each day any more. I understand your pain because I lost my 19 year old daughter on May 13 of this year. I lost 4 others in early pregnancy, the feelings as you say are similar but at the same time they are different. Yes I understand your pain and walk a similar path.
