My son Scott was killed.

Thursday, February 28, 2008

My son Scott was killed this afternoon. His 28th birthday is next week. I just finished making arrangements to donate his organs & tissues. I can't think now of all that has to be done - but I'll have to face it tomorrow.
I don't know when I'll be back on Spark, but wanted to quickly let you know why I won't be on the boards for awhile. He was an amazing, wonderful young man. Please think of our family and his many friends. We are devastated.

    I am sorry to hear about your loss and I'm here if you need me. It really hurts when your child leaves this earth before you do. It's not fair neither. Take care, Lady. Stay strong and it will take time. Time goes on and will never stop.... Always, ERNA

    My heart goes out to you. I'm sure that you're in a state of shock right now and please know that I'm here to help in any way that I can. My mother died when I was 16 and my father lived until he was 95. When I say my prayers at night, I pray to G-d and I see my parents as my guardian angels. I speak to them almost every night and I know that they are with me always. I know that Scott is looking down from heaven and will be with you every second of your life.

    I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. I wish there was something i could say or do to make you feel better; however, I know that is just not possible. So i will just say that i will keep you in my prayers.
    I would like to say thank you for your bravery to donate his organs and tissues. I hope it eases your pain a little to know that by doing this his life does not end, he goes on to save others. God Bless you dear.

    This is horrible news and my heart goes out to you. I will pray for you and for your son Scott. He sounds like he was a wonderful man and son. To be saving a kitten, well...you must have been very proud of him. May you both find some peace.

    you are in our thoughts and prayers, something like this will take time to heal, it is one fear a mother always has is to lose a child first, we are the ones to protect our young and to have no control over something so tragic, is so hard, if you need to talk to anyone , I'm here and let god know your feeling as he will lift your spirits up and let you know everything happens for as reason , and we may not think that at the time ,but its true. It is great that you are donating his organs as he can live through someone else , keep his memory alive always, and pray, be strong but remember crying is ok too. hope the rest of the family is well also jill
