RIP my beloved Son!!

RIP my beloved Son!!

My son, I remember when you came to me, and said goodbye, and hugged me, you were on your way to college in Hawaii. I never thought that I said my last goodbyes.

It was so devastating to me, to learn just by searching the web, that I came pass a obituary, that you had your calling May 21, 2009, and you were just short of becoming 24 yrs on May 22. I was never informed of your death by any family members.

I don't know why you left this world so quick. I would love to have closure on this so I can mourn your death, I put a memorial site on myspace: benjaminfbanghart55. Your in heaven now my son, the angels are rejoicing for you were a very special child, giving, friendly, people person, very talented in what you did, you loved sports, your loved the world.

I will always carry you in my heart, and love you, and remember my Carl!! RIP my son til we met in heaven someday.

Your father Benjamin F. Banghart.

Oh sorry.
by: Sandy Blumhagen Wolff

You have a class reunion coming up so people have been asking about you. I was so shocked to find first, Carl's obit without mention of you and then, this letter to your son. He looks just like you!

I remember Mr. Masters and band. His kindness was what kept me sane during high school. I think he was probably that kind of refuge to you too.

Oh! Remember choir and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego in the fiery furnace??

Years ago, my now ex & I went through all the paperwork and classes to become foster parents. But right as everything was almost finalized, we ended up adopting a baby. I knew what kind of parent I wanted to be and knew that kids needed safe, nurturing homes. But it made me think of you and wondered what you life was like.

Please feel free to get in touch.
In Him,

Was one of Carl's friends from 24 Hour Fitness Hawaii Kai. I was cleaning up my room today and found his old contact info he wrote on a piece of paper for me. Still remember the day I found out about Carl. One of the worst days in my life. Couldn't believe it. Still can't. And I honestly still don't what happened, or why. Wish I could have hung out with him more. He was an amazing person, and I miss talking to him at the front desk. Last time we spoke about the future he seemed intent on going back to the mainland and becoming a firefighter. He had such potential. I am so sorry for your loss.

So sorry for you loss>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.
by: Carl Hagerman Jr.

I was just looking for you on the internet and found this memorial about Carl and could not believe what I was reading. I am so sorry for your loss, my heart aches for you and the family. I remember Carl when Brenda and I visited you and Darleen in 1988. He was 2 years old and was so cute, had a smile on his face and seemed to love life. Please send me you e-mail address when you find the time. This is my e-mail address> It's been a long time since we last communicated with each other. I can't wait to hear from you and catch up on the past memories we shared in our youth.....Carl Hagerman Jr. 409 Dalton rd. Seneca, SC 29678

God Bless

God Bless you and your son. I cannot imagine the anguish you feel by finding out about your son's passing. That, for me, would be a most difficult "forgiveness" task, but one that must be accomplished for your own sake and no one else. I wish for you much peace throughout your grieving process and much joy when you find your conclusion to it all.

Although my story is not quite the same, it has a bit of familiarity in that I was not informed of my sister's passing at the time of her death, and I had to work that out inside of my heart, too. I found an awful lot of anger there, as I can only imagine you feel even more.

Please don't live with that inside of you. Your joyful life is worthy of so much more than the ignorance of others. And your Son's blessed memory is, too. Don't taint it with anger. Find someone, preferably a grief counselor who knows the ropes, to talk to about it. A professional can walk you through it and help you "sweep away the dirt", if you know what I mean.

Anyway, that's just a suggestion. I am truly sorry for your pain.

From one who's suffering to another ... God Bless you and yours.
