My Tribute: My heart has not stopped aching for you since Nov 26th – the night I received the ‘knock on the door’ that no parent wants to get. These 7 months have been a blur, a completely empty life, just going through the motions… not living, just existing. I’m trying to check back into life for Emily & Alexandra, but my heart aches for my lost boy…. Just to hear you call me “mommoi’ one more time!
My sweet Drew – You came into this world so full of life – you loved everything about nature, electronics, music, creating things. You were so bright and talented and I always believed, after the drugs took over that if I could just hold on a little longer, I would see the man I knew you could become. You would once in a while let me see that man, but mostly it was just so much rebellion….. I have come to accept you were the man you were supposed to be – I just didn’t see that at the time. you were a good man!
So many friends at your service – so many unique people, from all walks of life. People you knew from your childhood, through high school, college, all your workplaces – you were a friend to so many people, and so many people loved you! Did you know so many people cared about you? I wish you had understood that when you were here.
Do you know how much your sister’s miss you? You will not be there for Emily’s graduation, or Alex’s wedding — I don’t know how I will handle these life events without you being there.
I love you and pray your hurts are all gone and you are enjoying all the life in heaven! I love you, Mommoi
