Time passing too quickly.......

Sunday, February 12, 2017

This is a pic of my beautiful boy Justin when he was probably 16 doing what he loved best. Taking pics and traveling. It will be 5 yrs on the 23rd since he has left this earth to a higher plane. Such a talented young man and gone to soon to drugs. Thankfully we didnt have all the issues many have due to we werent aware until the day he died. Such a loving peaceful gentle soul whose spirit i believe was just too sensitive for this world.

Anyone he came into contact with he made a connection. Always a champion of the underdog. He rescued his pup Hutch after he was left at the truck stop where he worked. He then fought the cause of promoting Pitbulls as the gentle breed they are. I have continued that fight. He has made a forever lasting mark on this world and we will never forget him.

Time is ever fleeting and the missing is always there. You are always with me Justin and i will continue the fight for you. I am involved in a group that raises awareness about drugs and to erase the stigma that is labeled onto addicts and their families. Many not able to get treatment and Judged. Addiction is an illness and should be treated as such. It happens to all walks of life and is not a moral failing.

Mom misses you ever so much and till we meet again.........

    Oh, Maureen, this is a beautiful blog! Our Justin and Josh were kindred souls. I'm so happy they have most likely met by now and reinforce each other in their angel duties. You are a wise and wonderful woman and your efforts are SO appreciated.

    I reached out to a friend of a sparky friend that lost her son. She was in shock and hurting so deeply. I did my best to share my story and attempt to comfort her. Sadly she said she was going to go to the doctor and get tranquilizers. I haven't heard from her since. All people deal with tragedy in different ways...I just fear that by tranquilizing herself she will slow down or permanently postpone the grief she needs to face and work through.

    Not to say that we don't sometimes need some relief..but so many mothers just do not face the truth and by not facing nor sharing I sadly say they help no one...least of all themselves. emoticon

    I'm SO proud of us for not shying away from the pain..and then recovering to the point that we can help others if they are willing to accept it. emoticon

    It will be ELEVEN long years on May 16th that our beautiful boy has been gone...just unbelievable to me STILL! emoticon

    I'm sorry about your loss. It is inspiring to hear though that you are keeping his memory alive with advocating a better life life for Pitbulls and helping families in their time of need.
