Remembering my son


Today is the 11th Anniversary of my son's passing  from this disease.  I intend to spend it remembering his smile, laugh and spirit   and will not be posting or responding to posts.  See you tomorrow

Oh DEAR (((((((((((((((Betty))))))))))))))))) big hugs and love and compassion from me to you for your loss....NO parent should ever have to bury a child but often times this happens..and you miss them forever...I love your attitude about remembering his smile...the happier things you shared with him, because the alcohol was NOT him..Just something real sad that happened to him...the "HE" of him is in the happy place, smiling down on his lovely Mama.....Xo

I can hear the rumble of that Chevy motor as if I was there.  It fills my chest with excitement as maybe it did yours.  I remember running alongside a yellow Camaro in Hilo long ago and told you about it and how it reminded me of you and  your story.  Bless the memories.  Bless you and your son. (((((hugs))))) smile

(((Betty)))

The memory of Stephen's passing really brings home the "realness" of our programs, both on the AA-side AND to our own.  Kudos to you for being such an amazing human being, and continuing to help so many others with your beautiful spirit, long after your special son has left this world.  We always talk about how we don't "should" each other in our program, but just think of the power/credibility that you bring to any discussion, where your words are not simply words/directives, but spoken from the loving heart of a person who has lost a beloved son to this awful disease.

Thank you Betty - for everything you do.

 

Tom

Hi Betty

It's been one year for me and I see all the good you have done for the community and think......why can't I do more??

Prayers for you and hugs to go with it.

Take care

Cathy.... be gentle on yourself.  Many times we need that reminder that we are "exactly where we need to be" in our own recovery.  Your loss was tremendous, and we all figure out our own path, after such a traumatic event.  Sometimes one foot in front of the other is all we are capable of for a while.  Glad you're still here, and participating in your recovery....

(((hugs))))

Tom

Betty, my warmest and most sincere wishes and thoughts go out to you. I was so hoping -- and so glad to hear -- that your day was filled with warm memories and quiet reflection. I hope the warmth and peace was comforting, and I am sure you felt the love that comes with that warmth and peace.

All the best.

Bo

Thank you Bo  and Jitsuku I appreciate your kind words and prayers .  Cathy I agree with Tom your recovery is impressive. I am so glad that you continue to share here The loss of a child is overwhelming and I know how difficult this road is.   Just being able to put one foot in front of the other at first is a gift  You and Graceland  are doing great.

 Betty- your love for Stephen saved your own life- literally!

 You know what i am saying... what a gift you are...!

 We must continue to stand on hallowed ground. We cannot fight the disease head-on- though we all wish we could!

 But we can band together and seek solutions... a priceless gift of love... smile ...
