Brett"s Story

Hello, i want to share my story with you. My son Brett Alexander Wells was shot and killed a month and half ago in my house . he was only 16 Years old. I miss him everyday of my life. I dont know how to move on with-out him. I need him so much. It was a sensless tragedy,  why do bad things happen to good people? Can someone help me . Somtimes I just want to leave this world too be with-him.<3

Yes it the worst thing we will ever go through, i lost my son in march of this year, it was an accident but i am very angry and also feel like dying, but have to go on for my other kids and grandkids. they say it gets easier with time, i hope so. and that we have to grieve to heal, i get that but sometimes its so overwhelming . we are not alone but it is pretty lonely, lonely for my son. i still can't believe it at times. every morning when i wake up i say "damn i am still here" without him. i have not even dreamed about him, i think i am scared to and also have not accepted it yet. Can I ever?

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your precious Brett. I too wanted to die after my son's death, because it seemed like my only chance to be with him, and I didn't feel I could live without him.<br />

Take it day by day. The pain will always be with you, but you will learn to manage it better. I am still working on getting to the day where I want to live more than I want to die. I have made progress on it, but it takes a lot of time.<br />

All my sympathies.

I am so sorry. I can't even begin to imagine how this would feel. It makes me ill to even try.
