Re: my son was killed a year ago

Julie - I will google your son and read about him - I understand completely how hard it is to talk about. most times when I write on here I am so glad there are no webcams or cameras because I am crying my eyes out. You know - I feel the same way - about not wanting to be here anymore. My only salvation is my other two children. They are the only reason I stay here on this earth as I feel like I am dead inside and most days it is exhausting to try and appear "normal" and like your life has not been destroyed from under you.

My son, David. In short - he was 18, just graduated High school in 2011. His 'roommate' I say that because he was staying with him but most of his things (bed, clothes, dresser) were still at home - he still showered most the time at home, still had me do his laundry, came and went, and ate at home more times than not... His roommate shot him in the back with a high powered pellet gun piercing his aorta resulting in his death. At the time the roommate told ems (when he finally bothered to call them about an hour later) that him and my son had been smoking a synthetic marijuna called "Mr. Nice Guy" and that David had a seizure and could not breathe. The medical examiner found the hole in Davids back about 14 hours later and called the detective on the case - at which point they picked up the kid again and it took him about 6 hours of intense investigation before he told the 'truth' which I still don't believe. He called my son his best friend - dont think that is how friends - much less best ones behave.... That is the short of the story - I have alot more on this site if you want to puruse....

My son, like yours and many others on this board, was a wonderful kid - he was working in the family business with the goal of taking it over one day - he had his entire life in front of him. He was my middle child and I have an older son who is 21 and a younger daughter who just turned 13.

Thank god for them - or I would be with David now - the pain, like you said, most days is so great and so overwhelming I don't believe that even those I am closest to fully understand or comprehend...

Love to you! This board has been wonderful for me and the women on it have been amazing. They have helped me to vent during times of need and I want to do the same... I look forward to speaking with you more. I can't tell you it will get better or easier because I still dont believe that myself - but I guess we do the best we can to survive....

Re: my son was killed a year ago

Try calling the District Attorney,s office and see if you can get a victim advocate. I am so sorry to hear about your son's Death. It is hard enough to deal with this and I cannot imagine how hard it would be not to get justice. I hope you will but I must say that the pain continues. My daughter Keara was murdered almost 6 years ago and I am such a mess.
