Family tragedy has happened life forever altered

Post by Don B » Mar 12, 2016 9:13 pm

Well I lost my son/best friend yesterday. My 26 year old son died. he was my everything fishing bud, hunting bud we was going to test the boat together. we was close. My life is broken now. I dont know how to even go on. He had a rare blood disorder called Itp he was in remission for the last 2 years. We thought he made it. then Thursday at noon he felt sick at work so he went home.keep getting worse so he called a ambulance.at the hospital his condition just kept getting worse he squeezed me and my wife's hand and said I am dieing. We had no idea. So sudden. I will be naming my boat after him. But for now I've lost the reason to care about anything. RIP My beloved son ADAM

My stream will be a sorta memorial. But it was for us to play so for now it will be hard to even look at it. no need to reply I just needed to say this. That said I am forever at a loss with no way out. RIP ADAM will be my boats name in time.

I hate to hear that - I'm very sorry for your loss.

I can't imagine how difficult it must be for you. My father lost his twin sister at a young age and I later saw how that affected my grandparents. They moved on and were happy, but that obviously stayed with them forever as it will stay with you. It changed the meaning of everything for them. They saw joy and beauty in things that they hadn't seen before. They were grateful for the time they new her.

Focus on the joy that he brought you and the rest of the world. Its hard now (I can only imagine) but you'll get through it. Keep him in your heart. Think how special that first ride in the 'Stream will be now...

I am so sorry to hear this. I can't imagine what you and your family are going through right now. I hope you can find an escape from the grief - if only for a moment - while restoring your beautiful Stream. Hang in there!
