In Memory of....

mom 2 Waylon Kitchens Happy Birthday October 19, 2009
Peggy Burke December 27, 2008

 I am having a problem with my new laptop computer. I am not used to it and I mess up alot. I apologize. I told you above about loosing my son,Paul to an accidental drug overdose. I was one of those women that wanted to have at least 4 kids and raise them up all happy and bake cookies and be the room mother at school. I had 1 child with a very difficult pregnecy. I was advised not to have any more. I got married again when Steven,my oldest so was 4. I became pregnant again soon. My Paul was born 1 year and 2 months after I got married. I did stay at home an play house and act like Suzie Homemaker for those years. I did not go back to work until Paul Started to Kindergarten. I made those boys my life. I  loved thm so very much.

   Paul's death in 2003 destroyed  me and it destroyed Steven, my oldest son. Steven fell downward and farther dpwnward into depression. December 10, 2007 Steven took his own life . He never could come to accept Paul's death.

    I am a Mom  with out any children. I lost a great deal of my self with each of the dearhs of my boys. I do understand how you feel. I truelly know the grief and the pain that you and your family are going through. I understand how insensitive that people can be and how bad they can hurt you. Aug. 21,2008 me step daughter got to the point that she could no lomger deal with her pain. No matter how much we talked to her, she still blamed herself for Steven's death. Karla died at the age of 33 by a self inflicted gunshot wound.

   I did not think I was going to be able to go on I was ready just to give up. I had gone about as far down as a person could. I was so in the dark. I could see a few tiny points of light. That light was my husband and my grand kids. I then knew I couuld go on and that I must go on. I went on towards that light and I slowly started  to take baby steps forward. I did not move fast but I did move. I tried to put a few pieces of my shattered life back together.

    I just wanted to share my hearache and my grief with you all, hoping that you will see that you can make yourselved a new life, It takes a long time to get to the place where you can laugh and play again. My grand kids taught me how to do that again. My husband taught me how to let go and love with all my heart again. I learned strenght from prayer and from reading the Bible, I give the credit of my new life to God, family  and friends. I was a total mess. I was only a part of person. Now I am beginning to be a diffrent person. I will never be the same person I was, or will I have the same life as I had before. I am going to try my best to live my life for the living. I will pray for your family and for yall to feel God's healing power in all of your lives. I will have you in my thoughts and prayers. I wish for God to help you all through the hard times a head. I know it takes many years to recover. You will make it. It mat be hard at unexpected times, but that is all right. You grieve in yoour own way and in your own time. I will be with you in my heart, for I know what pain you have. I love you and will be thinking of you. Love Peggy
