My son Scott

by MOM
(Stephens City)

My son Scott past away on Dec 20 , 2011 at 33 years old. People say to me that he is in a better place. All I know is that he is no longer feeling the bad feeling and thought that he was living with . He struggled with drug addictions for many years . As his Mom I never gave up hope that he would be able to get to a life without drugs.The lose of my son has left a hole in my heart and so much pain. Times I feel like I can't breath. I don't want to live with out him but I know I will.I guess for me I move forward minute by minute , hour by hour and day by day. All I think about I hope he is at peace, not more sruggles. Here is a poem to my son:
I Thought of You Today
I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
I think of you in silence I often speak your name
All I have are memories and your picture in a frame
Your memory is my keepsake with which I will never part
God has you in His keeping I have you in my heart

Love always Mom

so sorry
by: Jen

I know exactly how you feel.....I buried my son Brandon on 10/25/2011 he died from a heroin overdose and was only 23yrs old. I was completely surprised about the heroin use let alone the call that he was dead. I knew that he had a pre-disposition for addiction and always thought it was just alcohol all along believing he would have his process/find his way into sobriety and live his life. I could totally relate to what you said about never giving up as a mom and hoping that they will find recovery. I am so heartbroken and devastated my son was my best friend even more so since my divorce 3-years ago we got really close. I also felt so mad that he was hiding his drug use (but that's what addicts try to do) - the coroner said that based on her findings it looked like he was in the experimental stages which is ultimately what killed him not knowing his doses he overdosed. But heroin is a VERY deadly drug so I've learned :(. I'm just beside myself and would love to chat anytime. my email is I will pray for you - thank you so much for sharing your story. I'm going to make a copy of your poem to look at everyday it's so helpful.

loss of a son
by: Bee-lieve

I am so sorry for your loss and I FEEL your pain. I lost my wonderful son Rick at age 41 just last month. H e died of complications of juvanile diabetes. I understand completely the hollow space in your heart anf the fact that I will never see his wonderful smile, hold his hand or hear his voice again on this earth, just saddens me to no end.He was in very bad pain the last few years and even though I know he is at peace now , I still mourn him every day. I wake up in the morning and the first thing I that enters my mind is hat I had a horrible dream... But it is not a dream.... my son really is gone.
I take each day moment by moment....
