   I'm so glad you are sharing your story as painful as it is . I do believe Michael will help save others. By you opening up to us and letting people know what you and your family have gone through and letting everyone know what type of person Michael is, is a blessing to some one out there who may be feeling they don't have anything left to live for in this world.
   I think once someone reads Michael's story it will make them think about what  is really going on in their life and how it may be effecting their family.  Its so hard for us as parents to understand what our kids have to deal with each day but, their are others out there that may have the same thoughts as Michael and realize this is not the thing to do.
   God Bless You, Liza and Michael is a gardian angel in heaven now watching over everyone.

Liza, I am so sorry for your loss. My heart is breaking for you and I don't even know you!!! It's sad and an awful loss. Nothing I can say here will take away your pain, but we all DO care.

Find a good therapist and start healing. It will take a long time, and it will be painful, but don't go through it alone, don't isolate yourself ever. Always reach out.

I will write more later this morning, I read your post and had to reply to it now before I head out for afew hours.

Love your daughter, and your family. Keep them close.

Hugs to you because you need as many as you can get right now.

I have two grown children and a stepson. You raised your family as well as you could, and by your words it seems you are a great mother. You can be the best there is, but there is nothing you can do to put yourself in the mind of your offspring.

I sat here and cried reading about your situation. There is nothing to do but grieve for him and let time heal the hurt. I know that is easy to say when you are not faced with the tragedy in you lives, but I have lost loved ones and their memory remains with me.

You have us to comfort you and feel free to talk to us when you can. You are a most brave and courageous person to share and perhaps help someone facing the same situation in their lives.

Oh Liza. I would like to wrap my arms around you right now and give you a great big hug. My heart is breaking for you and your family. Thank you for sharing the story of your incredible boy with us. I pray for peace and comfort for you during this time Liza.
God Bless, Softy

Liza, There is really nothing anyone can say at a time like this.As the mother of a son with bipolar, I walk in fear of what you and your family are experiencing right now.The Serenity prayer is really all that helps me when I have to go to his apartment after not hearing from him for days, and not know WHAT I'm going to find.No one that isn't in our shoes, doesn't know what tha not know 'what we'll find'But honestly, there are things we just can't change(we're not meant to for what reason we'll find out in God's plan)I know this may not help but I agree just don't shut yourself , cry, rage(in a controlled way)to get the hurt out.God bless and comfort all your family

Dear Liza,
That was extremely touching. The fact that at this time, you are thinking how you can help others in a similar position shows what a caring , loving person you are.
My heart goes out to you.

As I read this story, I kept saying "Oh my God". This is a chilling story of true life and Liza, God bless you for what you have had to endure. No one knows what our thoughts and feelings are. We keep them deep inside and can hide them real good. Sometimes we even can fool ourselves. My prayers are with you. Please post again. You can be a help to a lot of members.



There is no such word as can't. Can't simply means wouln't. Grab as much as life as you can. Future is a long way away for those who don't believe. Don't build a foundation of life on sand. It will take it away with the tide. Love a little more, be unkind a lot less.

There are no words to express what you must be feeling, I have 4 children of my own ages 27 - 9 , I just cant imagine losing a single one of them, although I nearly lost my oldest son to a car wreck 12 years ago..was in intensive care many days and has metal plates in head, but he is alive and doing ok. I am just so sorry for your loss, and grieve as well, all my love to you and your family. May God be with you.

Hi Lisa and everyone who has contributed to this conversation. I am so sorry for your loss. You must be going through hell. My beautiful 17 year old daughter was murdered three years ago. Unfortunately she got involved with drugs and this led to her murder. She was strangled and left naked in a back alley. I couldn`t have her funeral for 1 month. I couldn`t kiss her goodbye, because of the murder investigation and could only see her through a glass screen for a short time. The pain was unbearable. I try to get on with my life, but its not easy. It`s true what they say, time does heal and it does get easier. It helps to talk to other people who have gone through similar experiences. God bless you all. Vanessa

Liza, your post really touches me that after all you are going through, you are trying to help other people. I can't imagine the pain you are going through. I'm so sorry for your loss of Michael.
