Cosmo, you have my deepest sympathy. Un fortunately, I can say I know exactly how you feel right now, as I too lost my son at his prime (33) although he committed suicide. It's not easy to deal with, and no matter what anyone says, it will not get any better. Just don't blame yourself because it won't help.

You, your son and your family wiill be in my prayers. If you would like to talk (it might help) please feel free to get in touch.

Cosmo,

Nothing any of us can say or do, can lessen the pain a parent feels at a time like this. Our prayers go with you and your family. Only time will ease the hurt.

My wife and I lost our son in '88. Our hearts go out to you and your family. Remember the good times and do your best to forget the bad.

Vaughn

Cosmo - I am so deeply saddened to hear the news of your loss. After being away for a month I was hoping to catch up on some cheerful information. This thread certainly was not the case.

In any case, I am sure your son is in a much better place and I am sure there will be a day that you reunite with him once again.

All the best to you Cosmo as you go forward. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

Hi Coz!

It's good to hear from you. You are on the minds of a LOT of people. You take it easy and give peg and your family our love. Need anything, just ask.

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)
That is awesome.
