Our only child Josh lawhorn

Our only child Josh Lawhorn. My son passed away on jan. 13, 2011 he had just turned twenty on Dec. 14, 2010. We lost our son in a car accident. He had worked all night and was driving to see his little boy because he hated to miss out on anything. He fell asleep at the wheel, crossed the line and collided with another truck. Josh died instantly from blunt force trauma to the head. I remind myself that God is in control and will carry us when we are not carrying ourselves. One month after my son passed away his dad my husband had his first seizure. Wow, I thought o.k. God how much more? I remind myself the entire time just take a breath and remember it is only for a short time. I hope all the other parents who have lost a child can find a way to just breath even when it feels like someone is sitting on your chest.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on your loss.
I am in the tenth month of my son passing away. He was murdered at 21. I feel your pain and grief but GOD is in it with us. So, take it all to the one who can comfort you most and best, GOD. Take each day as it comes, one day, one step at a time.
It is well

I am so sorry for the loss of your gorgeous boy lovely pic of him.The pain us mums feel is just so unbearable, our beautiful children taken so suddenly from our lives is something we must live with for the rest of our lives.....how we do it is beyond me.....I lost my son Dean 23 last year to a car accident on his way to work, he also died instantly blunt force head trauma. My heart still aches every day and night and I think it will for as Long as I live. when I come to this site and see the loss of so many of our sons and daughters.....it just breaks my heart.....because I know the pain we are all living with. I send my love and a message of healing to you. My thoughts are with you .xxx

I love the photo of your son...so handsome and he looked so happy. I too lost my son, Dimitri. He was diagnosed with leukemia and dead 10 weeks later. My "first" anniversary is coming up August 9th. I'm still in shock. I don't think I'll ever understand. I miss him so so much. I don't think I'll ever recover from this....it's too awful to comprehend. I pray for some sort of peace every day but have yet to find it. Sending hugs to you and know that you can come here and just "chat" anytime you need to.

A similar story

Dana, I could have almost described the same car crash of my son Matt. He was a musician and played in a band, he was 26. He worked all day at his job as a chef for O'Charlies, and then played with the band that night at a Mexican Restaurant. He, too, fell asleep and hit a truck, and his ending was exactly the same...instant due to head trauma. It has been 5 years for me, and I have finally realized that I must let my anger with God go. I have been a Christian for many years, but after this happened, I just shut down. It has taken it's toll on my spirit. I have started grief counseling and have been asking God back into my life, and it has been about 6 weeks, and I must say I do feel better. Also, I am doing some new therapy that is sort of groundbreaking but is really helping. I will pray for you & your family. Blessings to you, Patti Meadows
