I lost my son Danny on July 1, 2008, to an overdose of alcohol and prescription drugs. He was 22 years old, a beautiful mountain of a kid with his whole life ahead of him, gone in an instant due to an error in judgment.
In the last two and a half years since that harrowing day in July when his father and I discovered him, I have been on a mission to find Danny through any means available to me. I am currently working on a book to share some of the roads I have explored in my search for Dan, all which have led me to one conclusion: Danny exists!
Minus his physical body, everything that I know to be true about Danny from his inner strength to his humorous personality exists. Although he is no longer here with me in physical reality, he has by no means been erased from the universe. He has made his presence known in so many ways, through so many different means that I would be in denial not to accept the validity of Danny’s continued existence.
While going through some of my recordings and notes from the past 2 and a half years, and I came across a message that came through medium Roland Comtois that I would like to share. Roland, who is both a gifted and compassionate medium, receives messages sometimes months before he actually meets up with the person who the message is for. He jots the messages down on big pieces of lilac construction paper and he is working on a book now about what he calls his “Purple Papers.”
In the fall of 2010, I took a workshop with Roland and we were given the opportunity to ask a question. I asked if Danny had any message for the other parents who had lost children. The following is copied directly from my “Purple Paper.”
“Tell them that our hearts and our love goes on. Tell them to look everywhere, every day, without pain and without sadness. We are all in the most holiest of healing light. Just know we are not gone. Keep telling them I exist.”
I think this is really an important thing to consider. I can live with the idea of being separated from Danny, but the idea that he has been erased from the entire universe is something entirely unacceptable and I believe erroneous! I do understand that many suffer from the delusion that only the physical is real and that their loved ones have been totally annihilated. For those I offer this quote from Albert Einstein: “Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.”
To those of you who are open to prayer I offer The Prayer Registry. This free website service is dedicated to all of the families who have lost children, whatever age that child was when they passed. This site registers the anniversary day of our children’s crossing.
