To my dear PT friends

Well, I've been over 24 hours without my dear son and I have survived. I felt like I was wrapped in a fog but the more I think about it perhaps it was the virtual arms of my PT family. I am amazed at your responses. I read every single one of them and they do make me feel better to know that so many people that don't know me or my son can be so caring. I know I'm still numb but I cry a lot too.

My mom eventually came to be with me yesterday. I feel bad for her because she is older (79) and she has lost her grandson. The two of them were very close. I worry about her. My daughter lives in Hawaii but flights out were almost a thousand dollars, which she didn't have, so friends from California, where I live, got the money together for a ticket and I picked her up at LAX last night. It is such a blessing to have her here with me. We cry and laugh together remembering our lost son and brother. I know there are a lot of painful times ahead, especially when my daughter leaves in a few days, but it is so good to have her to hold right now.

Teachers and admin at school have been very helpful. School goes through the 23rd but my princ told me to take off till break. She arranged for a sub and teachers have taken care of lesson plans. I am very thankful for that.

My son was a wonderfully creative witty man. It's hard to say man because he'll always be my little boy. He was so sensitive and caring his whole life. He was the child that the teacher said, "I wish they were all like him." He was a musician, a surfer and a writer. He had traveled the world with his band. He graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a major in religious studies. Although he was raised in Southern California my son wanted to experience the big city and he moved to NYC to get his masters from Columbia. He arrived there on September 10, 2001. I think that always effected him. He was a volunteer that made stretchers for bodies carried from the towers. He lived in NY and loved living there for 7 years but the poor economy finally brought him back home. He'd been living with me for the last year and struggling to find work. He moved out on December 6th. I can't help but wonder if he'd stayed with me if things would have been different. But I know he was a man and had a need to find his own way. I'm just so heart broken it ended this way. His body was burned beyond recognition. I'll have his ashes spread at sea... he loved the ocean and surfing so I think that's where he'd want to be.

I've rambled long enough but I just want anyone who wanted to know how I'm doing to know I'll be okay. I'm so glad you were there for me yesterday. I cried and read, cried and read. And I wanted you to know about my very special, much loved son, brother, grandson and friend. His name was Corby.

You are so strong. It is so wonderful that you can think of all the wonderful things at a time like this. What a blessing that he lived with you for the past year. He obviously left his mark on the world and I believe there is a special place for people like him. Keep surrounding yourself with those that love you and support you. You and your family continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

Oh gg.....you are in my thoughts and prayers. I understand completely about him being your little boy. He sounds like such an incredible person who experienced a lot in life. I am so glad your daughter was able to come. I am a single mom of 2 adult children who live far from me now. Know that many of us on PT are lifting you up and my personal prayer for you is for the "peace that passes understanding."

thank you so much for taking the time to update your PT family. I have tears in my eyes as I read your post. I am so thankful that your daughter was able to make it to be with you at this most difficult time.

I can only imagine how hard this is for you. Your news yesterday put my life into perspective and when I tucked my own little boys in bed last night, I held them a bit longer and told them I loved them dearly. I thought of you at that moment and of your precious son. From your description of your son and his life, I am positive he felt your love also. You took him back into your home this past year and gave him what he needed- not only a roof over his head, but also your support and encouragement. I would probably wonder as you do about "what if he'd stayed at home" but remember that you gave him the wings to fly, to be independent again, which is what he needed and I'm sure he appreciated that.

As you journey through the difficult hours, days, weeks, and months ahead, I hope you know that your PT friends are thinking of you. We mourn the loss of your wonderful little boy along with you. I feel very honored that you shared a bit about your son with us.
Please take good care of yourself at this time as I'm sure that is what your son would have wanted.

I am so incredibly sorry for you loss. I wasn't on yesterday so I didn't see the inital message, but I went back and found it. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm glad you have family around you now. I've only known one other person in my entire life named Corby and I always loved that name. Keep your strength going and take as much time as you need to go through the healing and grieving process.

I'm very happy to know you have people to support you through this difficult time. It's wonderful to know your friends were there for you to help your daughter come home and you have support from your school. I can't imagine what it feels like to experience the sadness you feel now. I wish the best for you.

I don't know what it is like to lose your child, however I watched my Mom go through so much when we lost my brother a couple of years ago. Please know that you are in my thoughts as well as your daughter. I won't say the atypical things that people normally say when they have nothing to say...simply because nothing that I say can take it away. I will say with time it gets easier....I'll pray for you....

I'm glad your mother and daughter are with you, as we all are with you in our hearts at this sad time. I can tell how proud you feel when you talk about your son. He had to know how much he was loved. I will think of you often and pray that you will continue to find comfort in your family and friends.

Gg,

I've been thinking of you since I read your post about your son yesterday. I am so glad that you have your mom and daughter with you for support. I know that God is holding all of you in His hand. I don't know why bad stuff like this has to happen. I lost my big brother 19 years ago and I still think about him every day. I know your daughter will be the same with her brother. Your family will continue to be in my prayers.

I want to thank you for introducing Corby....now the tears are streaming down my face as I type this. It was so wonderful to read how your colleagues came through, and let's not forget the admin.
Though "my feelings" aren't important, I will admit I feel so much better knowing you are not there alone. I understand your concern for your mother, but have you allowed her to comfort you-her baby?
I don't know..that last question was wishful thinking on my part. My mother passed years ago, but Lord knows I need to be wrapped in her arms and hear her tell me... "It's going to be alright".
Will continue to keep you in my prayers.

it sounds like Corby made the most of his precious years.
Thank you for your kind words and your sharing of personal
history. I love hearing about all of the special people that
have graced this earth. He was an extraordinary individual.

Your mom and daughter are, I am sure, a source of comfort to
you. I can see the pride in your words as you speak of Corby.
May you take some degree of comfort knowing that the world
and the people in it are better for either coming into contact with
him or as a ripple effect of his actions.
My thoughts and prayers remain with you and yours.

I am so sorry this happened to you and your family. Thank you for sharing Corby's story. He sounded like a wonderful person. I'm glad to hear you got some time off and that your colleagues are taking care of you at school. That's the last thing you need to be worrying about.

I'm praying for you and your family and sending hugs your way.

gg,

Thank you for sharing Corby with us. I'm so glad you have family with you so you can support each other through this difficult time. I love the idea of spreading his ashes at sea as he obviously loved the ocean. Again, please accept my sympathy.

Bless your dear heart.
I'm so, so very sorry for your pain and I wish I could reach out and give you a real hug.
I know that no words can truly comfort you at this time because what you really need is to have your son back.
But thank you for telling us about Corby.
He sounds like a strong, beautiful young man, and we know that he will always be your little boy.
I'm glad that your administrator is allowing you to take time off, and that friends provided for your daughter to be there with you. I hope that you can continue to comfort each other and your mom.
I will keep on praying for you.

Thank you for taking the time to share the story of your wonderful son's life. His selfless and giving nature has obviously been learned from an equally selfless and giving mother.

I'm so glad your daughter has been able to join you and your mother, and that your school family has been so supportive. Please remember to take care of yourself, too.

to hold you in my thoughts and prayers. Losing a son is so difficult. I lost mine eight years ago. When you shared your thoughts I immediately remembered the numbing feelings, the pain, the sadness. I will continue to remember and think of you. Be assured that you can turn to your friends here in PT.

You and your son have been in my heart these past two days. I have been praying for God's comfort for you and your family. I can not begin to fathom losing my son, but I have no doubt that a mother and son's bond can survive the temporary separation you two are facing. I will continue to pray for you during the quiet moments of my day. Thank you for sharing your story.

With Love,

Jessica

I am sitting here trying to see my screen as I type this because I am crying for you. Corby seemed like a wonderful person and I encourage you to continue remembering those memories you had with him with friends and family. Reach out to people who are willing to help and find that support system who you can go to when you need to cry, scream, be angry, etc. Take time for yourself and know that each and every one of us are here for you as well. Come and write out your feelings whenever you want...we can support you as well.

Your son sounds like he was a wonderful young man who brought great joy to your life. I am so glad you are not alone and that people have really come together for you at this time of sadness.

I continue to think of you and pray for you and your family. Please continue to lean on your PT friends. We are here for you.

I missed your original post, not being on here consistently. I am so sorry for your loss. My heart aches for you. Your son sounds like such a great person. He didn't live long enough, but he lived well. Many people don't make the most of their lives. It sounds like Corby did.

Sending you love and prayers.

Bless your heart....we all feel so much for you. I can't imagine how I would react, what I'd do, etc. if I lost someone so suddenly. I lost both my parents, but I know it's nothing like losing a child, especially one in the prime of his life. You'll go through a lot of feelings. Just allow it all to happen.

I haven't read responses, but please check into getting your daughter's airfare waved/reimbursed because of loss in the family. There is paperwork to be done, but if you pursue, it can happen. I know you have more on your plate right now than that, though.

Take care.

Thank you for your open response. Corby sounds like someone you should rightfully feel very proud of.

Take comfort in your family now. This season will be hard, and there will be more difficult times in the future. I lost my brother when I was 28, he was 26. (18 years ago). The most heart wrenching thing I have ever been through. I still remember how hard it was right afterward. Time does make it better, but... a lot of time.

God Bless you. Will be thinking of your through out the holidays. Take care of yourself, please.

Your family was on my mind all day. Thank you for allowing us to hear your story. Every day with our family and friends is a gift and it sounds like your son never wasted a day. Corby knew that he was loved. I am praying for you and wishing you peace.

I am so full of joy reading about your Corby. Sounds like he had quite a spirit about him that touched many. I'll continue to pray for you and everyone whose life he touched. Be strong, and know that your loved ones- real and virtual- are here to hear more any time you're ready.

I have been thinking about you since yesterday, and I was hoping (but did not think it would happen) that we would hear from you today. Thank you so much for telling us about your beautiful son Corby.

What a gift you had to be able to live with him for the last year. I know you are thinking about the "what ifs" but we can't do that. It will make you crazy, and won't change the horrible reality.

What a blessing you and your daughter's friends were to get her here! I am thankful for you.

You remain in my prayers. ((Hugs)) to
you.

Thank you so much for sharing a little bit of your son with us. He sounds like an incredible man; one we'd all like to be friends with.

GG, I know I can't fully understand what you are going through. I have never lost a child (I don't have any), but I did lose my father 7 years ago. I know how your heart feels, and I wish more than anything that you and your family weren't going through this. The hurt can be so overwhelming.

I'm not sure what your belief systems is, but who knows...maybe your son is giving God (and my father) one hell of a concert up in Heaven!


(((HUGS))) to you and your family.

I'm glad your family is with you and you have your virtual PT family here.

Corby sounds like an incredible person. I always think of close people I lost as angels in the sky, just looking out for me from above.

Enjoy the comfort of your daughter and mother.

I will continue to keep you all in my prayers!

Oh, gg, what an amazing mother you are, to take time out during your grieving to update us. Thank you for sharing precious Corby with us. After reading your post yesterday, it made me so sad. I stopped and said a prayer for Corby and you and for the so many others grieving for their children. I prayed for your comfort and peace. Your story made me stop and count my blessings. I am so sorry you are having to endure this. Please know we all are so truly concerned for you. Love and peace, gg.

It is wonderful that your school family is helping out during such a difficult time. Take time to grieve and rest. My thoughts will stay with you and your family.

GG, as you can see, we've all been thinking of you so much. I cannot imagine your heartache, but I am glad you took the time to tell us about your wonderful son, Corby. I'm also glad that your family is with you at this time. I told my mom about you last night, b/c I knew she would pray for you and keep you in her heart, as one grieving mother to another (we lost my 30 year old brother 8 years ago).

Your bond with Corby was, and is, special. That will never go away.

Rest in peace, Corby.

Thank you for sharing your heart with us. As a teacher, we all know how much children learn from their parents. Hearing you describe Corby and his life tells me a lot about what a special mom you were to him and are to your daughter. He was a blessing in your life, and you can be confident that you were a blessing in his.

You will be ok. Talking about him and sharing your feelings is exactly what you need to do to get through the grief you now experience. The pain will lessen, but the scar will always be there. Always remember Corby with joy.

I hope you will accept these words in love. May God continue to comfort you.

I have an 18 year old son, I can not even imagine loosing him to such a tragedy. I think as moms we always have a fear of loosing our children. My heart aches for you! One thing that I have learned in my life is that "time will heal". Take good care of yourself and may God continue to bless you and your family. "Hugs"

You and your family have been in my thoughts all day. We recently lost a student from our school in an accident and we posted this poem in our school newsletter. I hope it lightens your sorrow.

This poem was written by a 13 year old boy who died of a brain tumor that he had battled for four years. He died on December 14, 1997. He gave this to his mom before he died. His name was Ben.

My First Christmas in Heaven

I see the countless Christmas trees
around the world below
With tiny lights, like Heaven's stars,
reflecting on the snow.


The sight is so spectacular,
please wipe away the tear
For I am spending Christmas with
Jesus Christ this year.


I hear the many Christmas songs
that people hold so dear
But the sounds of music can't compare
with the Christmas choir up here.


I have no words to tell you,
the joy their voices bring,
For it is beyond description,
to hear the angels sing.


I know how much you miss me,
I see the pain inside your heart.
But I am not so far away,
We really aren't apart.


So be happy for me, dear ones,
You know I hold you dear.
And be glad I'm spending Christmas
with Jesus Christ this year.


I sent you each a special gift,
from my heavenly home above.
I sent you each a memory
of my undying love.


After all, love is a gift more precious
than pure gold.
it was always most important
in the stories Jesus told.


Please love and keep each other,
as my Father said to do.
for I can't count the blessing or love
He has for each of you.


So have a Merry Christmas and
Wipe away that tear
Remember, I am spending Christmas with
Jesus Christ this year.

for posting and thanks pt friends for posting the link so I could read.
I believe that your son knew that he was the luckiest man on earth to have such a wonderful mother. It is so clear from reading your post that you both had a special bond. Cherish it. God Bless you.

Thanks for posting about your wonderful son Corby. It makes me tear up and I can feel your pain through your posting. Prior to seeing this post I had posted on your original one. You and your family will continue to be in my thoughts. You are a strong woman. Please continue to post as I'm sure it will help you in the healing process to continue talking about him. He sounds like a wonderful man and I know that you are proud. We are here for you gg.

I also lost my son unexpectedly...

I lost my youngest son 10 years ago. It takes a long time for the heart ache to become bareable. I finally went on Celexia after a few months and that helped me to get a handle on my emotions.

As a Christian I know that I will someday see my son again. I asked my minister if those in heaven know what is going on here on earth and based on several scriptures he told me that he believed that they did. I ask God to let my son know all the thoughts that come to mind that I would like to say to him if he were here. I believe God shares those thoughts and that helps me too.

You are in my prayers.

My heart really does ache for you and your entire family. I am so glad your daughter is able to be with you right now. I think having him at sea is a wonderful idea. I hope you don't torture yourself with the "what if" game. So many things are out of our control. I hope you are able to keep your friends and family around you for support, and we at PT are always here for you too!

gg- I'm very sorry for the loss of your son. I can only imagine how heart-wrenching this must be for you. I did not see your original post about your loss, so I wanted to tell you now that I'm praying that God continue to help you heal and be strong. May God bless and comfort you and your family.

You have been in my thoughts and prayers. Your post has made me think about treasuring the moments I have with my sons even more. I'm so glad your community and school are taking care of you. Your son sounds like he was a wonderful, giving, and fun loving person. Cherish your memories of him. My heart aches for you.

I haven't been on PT for a few days and I missed your first post about your son and now am reading this one. I am so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine how you feel. I would be numb too. Your son sounds like a wonderful person. I hope you will find some peace with this and know you have many people thinking of you now.
