Son Killed By Motorists
My son was struck and killed by motorists who refused to stop and render aid to him. I buried him Saturday--July 26,2008. Needless to say I was devastated but God has strengthened me for the journey. Where was God in all of this? He was only 24 yrs old.

I don't know what to say. The Lord Giveth and the Lord Taketh away, Blessed be the name of the Lord. He is with God, awaiting the Last Day and will be reunited with you then (I firmly believe). I will be praying for you immediately - Psalm 130.

Sorry, my brain is overworked these days. I meant Robyn but include Lynne also. Robyn I cannot believe this. How terrible. You certainly are in my thoughts and prayers.

Robyn, I am so very sorry for you & your family. We lost our precious grandson, Jimmy, a little over 2 years ago, after heart surgery, at 10 yrs. old. I have come a long way, but it will never be "easy." As for wanting to hold him, to hug him--I ask God every day in my prayers to please give him a big hug from his Grandma. And I believe He does. Please know that I will be praying for your comfort.

Lyn: Thank you and I will pray for you as well. How are you coping and dealing with your loss? I still cry and wish I could have him back. I wish I could just touch him.hold him and let him know how much we still love and care for him but I know that is impossible,now. He will always be in my heart. My thoughts get the better of me,some days but I am getting better. Day by day.
My prayers and condolences to you,beloved.

my son was killed by a 30yr old driver of a black sports car 6 years ago. He was 18yrs 7 months just starting his life. I feel for you.

It has been over a month now that my son has been gone. I am doing much better by the grace of God, but I feel, some days a sadness and emptiness inside. Knowing I will never see my son again, on this earth. That is a bitter cup to have to drink from. I have had to fight the urge to become angry,to not pray and just want to blame someone for what has happened.
I cry some days just out of the blue. I look at beautiful pictures of this beautiful baby then boy then young man. It breaks my heart.
Please continue to pray for me and my family.
I still trust and believe God through it all.

We are still in prayer for you and your family Robyn.
Take time to go through all the feelings and emotions that come to the surface after such a tragedy.
What a friend we have in Jesus who helps us through such terrible times! HE is the only one who can heal our broken hearts.
God bless you sis, and LOTS of hugs.

Thanks to all for your very warm and encouraging words. I have had so much love and support shown to me and my family over these last few weeks.
I am much stronger today. Thanks be to God. I will always love and miss my son. He will always be in my heart. I pray that whomever did this will come forward and give our family closure.Do the right thing.
He was a very bright and intelligent young man whose life was just beginning. But God loved him best and called him home.Thank again to all for your prayers and heartfelt words of encouragement.
---Robyn on 7/30/08|
My sympathies go out to you and your family and friends who will miss your son.
I have no answer to why such tragadies happen. Just know that you will be in my prayers and I pray God gives you peace.

I am so sorry.
My sister lost her husband on June the 6th. He was only 41 years old.
She as well questioned God's hand being still.
All I could tell her was that one hand was holding Randy and the other holding her up.
My sister states she has been through days and weeks not remembering what she did or how she moved around. In a daze.
She doesn't remember much of the planning or having the funeral. She askes me who and why this and that decision was made. I had to remind her that she made all of them.
It's like the footprints poem.
Yet, losing a child, I believe is the hardest death of all the deaths to accept from God.
My prayers are with you and your family.

I am so sorry this happened. My heart goes out to you. Take care of yourself dear.
---Kella3336 on 7/30/08|
Robyn, as a mother I can, in some way, imagine how you feel right now, but on the other hand I cannot because I have never been where you are right now. I am so sorry for your loss and you are in my prayers.
---RitaH on 7/29/08|
I am sorry for your lost. I will try and quote what I heard one time about a woman in a similar situation as yours. when she asked God "where were you"? And God said, "at the same place when my Son was murdered".... An unthinkable act upon a very selfish individual.... These men in power, also an act of selfishness, among being evil and wicked, who murdered our Lord and Saviour. It was God's will, on the otherhand, the worst crime in human history. Just amagine how Mary the mother of God felt watching her beloved son tortured for the likes of me.

As a parent your tragedy rips my heart out, it is my greatest fear. Please take care of yourself, take time to talk to a good Christian Counselor, join a Christian support group if one is offerred at your place of worship. I will promise to pray for you.

Words cannot convey how very sorry I am dear.
---Mary on 7/28/08|
Robyn, my heart breaks for your loss at this time. I have three children, my daughter just turned 32, a son 31, and a son 25, so I certainly understand your pain. It feels so wrong to have to bury a child.
God is the same loving God who loves you and loved your son from the time he was conceived. Only God knows the number of our days, and He chose a certain number for your son. Why he chose a low number is not for me to say, but He has His perfect will and reasons.
My best suggestion is to meditate on Psalm 139, and really pray for the Lord to heal your hurting heart. He loves you and sees your pain.
---Trish9863 on 7/28/08|
robyn,iam truly sorry for your loss.trying to make sense at a time like this is nearly impossible.but dearas I believe donna said God was in the same place he was as his son hung on the cross.death is a part of life because of sin.yes its a sorry state that some people would run from their actions,but its not unnatural.I will keep you in my prayers,and just say again only those who have experienced what you have, know how you feel.so sorry for your loss,may God comfort you.
---tom2 on 7/28/08|
God was the same place HE has always been. It was not God that did this, but people. I am so sorry for your hurt and pain during this. As the mother of three sons myself, I can't imagine what you are going through. But, I will be praying for you and your family.
---SusieB on 7/28/08|
Well, He strengthened you, Robyn.
So . . . thank You for what You have done.
And we pray Your mercy for those people. These are ones like those criminals hanging with Jesus on the cross, who may be where she will be able to reach them, and that "thief" next to Jesus then gave himself to Jesus who was God's Son being killed.
Please bless her with any suprising way You will have her seeing things now. This world has trained us how to see things. Now it's *Your* turn, LORD.
---Bill_bila5659 on 7/28/08|
Robyn - my heart truly goes out to you. You have my deepest compassion and sympahty and prayers. I am so very sorry to hear about your son passing on ((((huggss))))).
Where was God in all of this? The same place he was when His son was dying on the cross. And He has a ton of compassion for you and loves you and your son deeply.
We live in a corrupted world with unsaved people who are unsaved heathen people who are demonically driven.
There will come a day when you will see your son again in heaven. God is the only one who can tell you why this happened. Pray and ask for Him to show you. Ask God to comfort you as He is not the author of what happend - the devil is.
---donna8365 on 7/28/08|
I'm so sorry for your loss and It takes guts to acknowledge God when you have tried to live a Christian life yet come across tragedy. There are no answers no one knows why? because life is a process and we have rain and we have sun and God never promised we'd live forever but promised eternal life and with that hope we go by his mercy and grace.
We still have the consequences of Tragedy and we unfortunately are not promised blue skies and rainbows but we're promised the strength to bare all, It's easily said than practiced but in it all I hope you still remain thankful and grateful for his Life with you and celebrated The Lord him.
---Carla5754 on 7/28/08|
Oh Robyn ... I don't have an answer, but ..
My prayers are with you.
---alan_of_UK on 7/28/08|
Oh Robyn my heart breaks for you. My most sincere sympathies to you and your family.
This world is full of evil and we have little control over the awful things that happen.
Don't loose sight of the fact that God loves you and is holding you tight whether you 'feel' it or not. Depend on Him to see you through something that was a random act against your son.
I can only imagine how you feel. My son had his 35th birthday yesterday, I can't bring myself to know how I'd feel if something happened to him.
Bless you sister, never loose sight of God's love, HE had no part in this act.
