My Son is Gone
My son, Willie, passed away on December 28, 2013 in Scottsdale, Arizona. I live in Connecticut and was in Arizona visiting him for 6 weeks and flew home October 26, 2013. I still do not know what happened to him as autopsy is still pending. I spoke to him on the phone the night before he passed. He was happy, he bought a new pair of sneakers that day. I had the office of his apartment complex check because I could not reach him and he was found in his bed dead. About 3 1/2 years ago, he was in a very bad auto accident. He almost did not make it then, he had to have emergency brain surgery to save his life. He did recover and said God was not ready for him - that he still had a purpose to be on earth, but did not know what it was. I think it was so I could spend more time with him before he had to go. We were always close, but after his brain surgery, we become even closer. We spoke every day. He was a very good son, never disrespectful or mean and often told me he loved me, and I know he did. I miss him more each day. I think at first I was in shock and numb. As time goes by it is sinking in deeper and hurting more and more. How do mothers and fathers handle this hurt that never goes away?
