My Son.....Age 21

Erick, You left us too soon, my love. I know how you struggled with this monster, how it consumed your very being. I know you feel you let me down. I never stopped loving you through this hell, I wish you knew how many people truly loved and cared about you. I hope you know how hard my John tried to save you that night until the paramedics got there, but you didn't want to come back. I wish our fight would have been successful for you, there are so many things I wish you could see, feel, experience, that you never will. I remember 3 days before you died how you went out back and organized the little kids on the block to play basketball, how you played ball with the mentally challenged boy down the street. This proves to me your spirit was not dead. It just felt like it was to you. I pray you forgive me and yourself for things done and not done. I miss you so much, I feel like my heart has been pounded on and shredded. I never knew what pain was until now. You were the first gift of life to me, how do I go on without you? I love you so much and don't know what to do with that love now. Your sister Jessica and brother Christopher will always love you too, and be sure to let their children know about their big brother. I continue to pray for your friends all the time, they love you and miss you too. I know your hell is over and you finally have peace. So until I see you again, "Sleep in heavenly peace". With all my love, now and forever,
Mom Written on www.ourwall.net shortly after his death. Please sign Erick's guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember him forever.






Though Erick died clean of drugs and didn't die as a direct result of drugs, e.g. overdose, Erick struggled for years with drug use until it destroyed his mind, body and soul so much he saw no hope, and he took his life the night of April 4, 2001. We believe he was bi-polar, thus not being able to stay off of drugs long enough to establish a life he could accept and thrive in. In a group I am in online, POS, their saying is "The time came when the pain to stay was greater than the pain to go." I believe this. I believe Erick suffered a pain few of us could understand. He is free at last, in pain no more, and at peace. It is us, left behind who are in pain now, we miss him so, somedays are almost impossible to keep on top of this overwhelming loss. Though I know Erick didn't mean this for any of us, someday's it's a small tradeoff for how much I long to hug and kiss him, and just talk to him, hear his laugh, bust my sides at some of his jokes. He was my firstborn, and always will be in my heart until my last breath. My very broken heart. Love you Erick, Mom


Music by Enya - "Only Time" ONLY TIME by Enya Who can say where the road goes,
Where the day flows?
Only time... And who can say if your love grows,
As your heart chose?
Only time... Who can say why your heart sighs,
As your love flies?
Only time...



And who can say why your heart cries,
When your love dies?
Only time... Who can say when the roads meet,
That love might be,
In your heart. And who can say when the day sleeps,
The moon still keeps on moving
If the night keeps all your heart?
Night keeps all your heart... Who can say if your love grows,
As your heart chose?
Only time... And who can say where the road goes,
Where the day flows?
Only time... Who knows? Only time... Who knows? Only time...
