Peace to all the wonderful people here.
Blume (for now).
On Feb. 1, 2009 (Super Bowl Sunday that year) my 21 yr. old son Mark took his life.....we found him in our home office as we were getting
ready to leave for church.
Almost one year later, our 22 yr. old niece (she was a twin) also took her life.
Before my son left us, I felt life here was hard....I'd lost two siblings, had parents who had many issues and didn't parent us well,
etc. etc. I had absolutely no clue about how hard life could be until I saw my precious son lying on the floor that day.
I have one child still here--well, she's almost 25 now.....she lives w/ us along w/ her 2 yr. old son whom I care for much of the time.
It's hard raising another child at my age and in my grief; yet I can't imagine where I'd be if it weren't for my grandson.
While I want to stay here for those I love, a big part of me wants to join my son in Heaven.....I know it will always be that way until I
