My only son was taken by gun violence. No one can fully understand the pain that is experienced as a result of the loss of a child. Not a day passes that he is not in my thoughts, my heart and spirit. I thank God for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of your life.
My life has changed dramatically. Once filled with joy and happiness; now pain and emptiness. You brought me joy, happiness and love. You were always different, independent and strong. It was a joy watching you develop into a young man. I am strengthened by your memory and have found meaning and hope. I will do my best to continue to be the mother that I was. I will love you always.
