I will go on

Thursday, April 18, 2019

I will never forget that morning, June 30, 2018. I received a text from one of Donny's friends asking if Chris had gotten in touch with me. He hadn't, but I knew something bad was up. Finally after several hours of trying to figure out what was going on, we got the news....Donny was dead, stabbed to death by a random stranger who, after being released from prison 8 days earlier, decided to try to kick in Donny's door. Its probably the worst thing that can happen to a parent, to lose a child, the pain is sometimes unbearable, but we go on. Everyday is a struggle sometimes, but there is also joy in every day, my other two kids have been incredible support for my husband and I. Literally hundreds of Donny's friends have rallied around us and supported us in so many ways and I will be eternally grateful for them and their love. Life will never be the same, the pain of his loss will never go away, but I will go on and I will find joy in each and every day. I will cry, I will hurt and I will smile. Love you forever Donny and you are always with me.
