Cosmo, I grieve with you. I lost a child year ago, and presently have a 21 year old that has been using Heroin.

I have watched him withdraw three times, the last time about 2 months ago. I truly understand and my prayers are with you in this time of need.

Cosmo, I am deeply saddened by your loss, as others have said, to outlive a child is any parents greatest fear. I will keep you and Peg and your entire family in my thoughts and prayers. You have many friends here who are offering support.......lean on them in your times of need.

I know God is holding Matt in his arms.........take comfort that he is at peace, I know this may be a small comfort, I cannot imagine what you are going through. I pray that you will be able to celebrate his life at the wake and funeral. I'm so sorry.

I don't know you and Peg. But I too have a son and am feeling terribly vunerable. There's no preparation for such a tragedy. Please take strength in the fact that you gave life to someone and shared in the many bright moments of that life. My condolences.

I am sad to see your son go. I lost my brother back in January 2003, and this is a poem I wrote.

White Smoke
Tires Burning
Flashy Cars
Heads Turnin
It’s a race to the finish
And someone will win
The track will close down
The races will end
Victory is for the best
And only dust left for the rest
But one must look at the race in irony and see
That it’s a metaphor for life and how it will be
Starting so slow and ending so fast
The clock starts to tick but only seconds it lasts
But being the first to finish
May make you lose in the end
When the race is so slow, “Are you sure you want to win”
You had it in your heart and it was surely in your soul
We all knew the end of that strip was always your goal
I look up to heaven and I see my brothers face
He was the best driver
He finally won the race
In loving memory of Joey Conner(9-23-77/1-17-03)
