    Never take your children for granted. Not EVER!  Because life will throw crap at you that you don't expect, don't deserve, and can't change like your seemingly healthy 19 year-old dying of diabetes 2 when all you thought they had was the flu.So, for those who mutter about life not being fair. . . . . . . . that's the friggin' truth if I ever heard it!Here are some pix of my son, David Anthony Roberts, a/k/a Dilbert, RandomMan, the great big funny guy, etc.  He flew to heaven January 6, 2006, at the age of 19.  I mourn the world that they didn't get to meet such a wonderful man; a pure soul he was . . . . .

    May God bless you Loni, I am so sorry, I can not even begin to imagine the pain that you must feel each and every day. Take comfort in knowing that your beautiful son in with our Heavenly father watching over you. Thanks for sharing you beautiful pictures with us."

    Dearest Loni, My heart goes out to you and your family. I can't even imagine what you must go through each and every day. I can see through the pictures you've shared that he was and still is very much loved....From one MOM to another, be strong and stay strong for the others that need and love you...You will be with your son again someday and i'm sure there will be a rainbow in the sky when that day comes. I will keep you in my prayers. Always, Lyndalou

    The last thing I want to do is bum anybody out because of the loss I have suffered. But this has changed me; I am no longer the strong, got-it-all-together woman who held the position of Legal Assistant for over ten years, the last five with a firm that specialized in BKs and Trusts, and had just earned certification from Federal Court as a Certified Business Bankruptcy Specialist a month before david died.  But, amazingly, after five years of excellent employee reviews, and a distinguished reputation in the legal community of being a professional that anyone could call anytime if they needed help, I was fired because I couldn't keep up with the workload!  One day before my fifth anniversary (on which I would have earned three weeks vacation time to make up for the time I had to take off after his death. Cold, huh?I have attached some pictures of David, and a couple of him and me, too!Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts.

       Thank you all so much. It's hard to bare your soul as I have here, because it breaks caring people's hearts. I'm sorry for that, but let it be of some solace to you that the fact that you care counts as brownie points in my book, and it's kind of like a get into heaven free pass. <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="genmed">[​IMG]
