    I’m sorry you had to go through that with your son. Thank you for your kind words. I’m having a bad day. It’s so hard.

    What’s killing me today, is that his car was brought to us two nights ago. This is the car that he passed away in. I don’t know what to do. I’m trying not to look at it when I go in to the garage to get in my car, but I just imagine him dying in the driver seat.

    lovemyson1 ...
    Gentle hugs for the deep pain you are in on this day.
    I am so very sorry you are going through this time in your life...I wish I knew exactly what to say to comfort you.

    What would your son want you to do about the car? I can't imagine what it must be like to have this reminder.

    God hold you in His loving arms

    I am sorry for your loss. Addiction is so painful. It robs us of our loved ones and robs them of their lives too. I'm so happy you at least had a few years to see him I'm sure as he surely wished he could have remained. Sober and accomplished.

    There are really no words that will heal you but I do pray you lean on God. He will give you strength.

    Prayers to you and your family.

    Oh you poor thing. Call a friend, one that doesn't live too near you, and ask them to come take the car to their home until you are ready to figure out what to do with it! People always say, "If there's anything I can do..." and they mean it, but there's nothing to be done. Well this is a concrete thing someone CAN do for you! You must know someone who would get it out of your sight for a few weeks at least. It's a very small thing to ask of someone and they will feel better for having lent you a hand.

    I am sending you a big hug to help carry you a little through this terribly painful time and your immeasurable loss. I can only imagine how heart-wrenching it must be to have your son's car delivered to you.It makes his sudden death so painfully real. I am so sorry.

    I am so sorry. What a painful reminder. That is too too much to deal with. I agree with Lil about someone holding the car for you. Is there anyone you can call? Maybe one of his fellow servicemen?

    Perhaps have somebody else sell it and put the money into a charity, that he would care about, in his name. Just an idea.

    I am so sad for you. I lost a younger child, a beautiful son. Cancer. We give to St. Jude in his name. We think he would have liked that.

    I feel his essence often. It almost seems as if my little boy is sometimes right next to me. I believe I will see him again. You will see your son too and maybe you will feel him with you sometimes. I hope so. I find it very comforting.

    God bless.

    Dear Lovemyson1,
    I am thankful for your son's life. I remember your posts telling of him years back, and I gave thanks for him then and now. I believe the plan and purpose of his life has reaped rewards and will continue to bless in ways we may never know. It is always a painful but necessary loss anytime a life passes, as a part of us dies also, but a new part grows with a contentment of heart in making a peace with your son, and in glad thankfulness for his short life.
    ... Love, thoughts,and prayers to you, sweet mother. You will come through this.
    ... Take care ~

    Thank you all for your tender & thoughtful words. my son was so proud of this car he had really fixed it up nice and only had it for about four months. It’s not even paid off. My husband takes a lot of pride in everything our son did. It was his idea to have the car brought to us. I told him yesterday that I just can’t look at it so he covered it up with a car cover. I’m hoping that he’ll sell it but first we have to pay it off. I try not to look at it when I go to the garage, but yet there it is. Thank you all again for your comfort.

    Terribly sorry to hear of the loss of your son. It is the thing that every parent of a child with addiction issues fears the most. Please accept my heart-felt condolences and a big virtual hug. I will keep you in my prayers.
