My Beloved Son

My son, Christopher Lee Doyle, died on August 2, 2011. He was riding his bike to work in Brooklyn. NewYork when he was struck and run over twice by a delivery truck driver. Chris was 29 years old. He was my pride and joy, the light of my life. I miss him and my heart is broken, but yet, I know he is happier now then he ever was on this planet we call Earth.

I can relate also, my son was 28, i just lost him in march of this year. My sister lost her daughter 4 years ago and I thought how is she going to get through this. she has but its taken its toll on her, she has aged and her health is not good, mental or physical. all she says it that it doesn't get easier, she has to now get shock treatments cause she is suicidal. well that doesn't give me much hope, but I am learning from her. she didn't deal with it right away, she blocked her feelings and tried many different medications. non of them worked, just made it worse. So, i started counselling and going to a group called compassionate friends. it helps, at least i am talking about it. I read books on grief and talk to friends and family about my feelings, i have lots of support. I also have other kids and they still need me, i don't wanna hurt this bad forever so i will do whatever it takes to try and heal. we can't do this alone, thanks for your stories. we can help each other heal. hugs

My son was 29 when he died, also.<br />

It will always be the worst day of my life. I can say that with certainity, despite the fact that I have no idea what is ahead for me. It is hard to put into words the horror and the pain of losing a child.<br />

Like you, I believe that my son is in a better place. But it is still hard to go on without him. All my best to you as you continue your journey forward. You are not alone in what you are feeling.
