Terence Joseph Warren
My Marine- Terence J Warren
June 19, 2010 is the day that I will consider that part of the world ended.
At4:47 a.m. a knock at the door, I was thinking it was my beloved son Terence coming home, but it was a local police officer. My first reaction "What kind of trouble is he in", but no I was told to call the County Medical Examiners office because there was an accident involving my son.
I really can't remember what else happened, all I know is that my son was dead. How can a 27 year old ex Marine be dead? Someone who was in combat serving their country and now die at home.
My son was such a handsome man, also a ladies man for that matter. I love him so much. His little sister who is 19 yrs. old was the apple of his eye. He was so proud of her and she of him. He always considered her the "smart one".
We still can't believe that we will never get to hold him again, joke with him or even me having to yell at him for a knucklehead decision.
I had some questions that needed to be answered. I just had to know. I spent 1 1/2 hrs with the Chief Medical Examiner asking questions about my son's death. I found my answers.
Today is 13 days since his passing and I cannot figure out how to go on, but I must because of my daughter.
I will love you Terence until the day I die. It just was not supposed to happen this way.
I have you with me forever. God blessed me with you for 27 years and now he decided that he needs you with him.
All I ask is that God above help me go on living and giving me strength for me and my daughter.
I miss and love you.
