A little help

  1. Congratulations to your son! That's wonderful news. When one good thing happens it lifts the spirits, making way for more good things to come in.

    Son is in California for 12 days getting acquainted with his new employers. He does seem in much better spirits since this happened.
    However I seem to be losing faith in the human race. Two different animal abuse case on the news today have me wondering what people are becoming and why I should be nice to them. One was a 4 month old puppy that someone set fire to. She has 2nd and 3rd degree burns over half of her body. The other was a dog found in the Ozarks area chained to a large concrete block at the edge of a lake. Apparently someone was hoping the animal would drown. The more I hear stuff like this, the more I want to retreat from "civilised" people and live with just animals in the wild. :mad::(

    That's one reason I moved to the Smoky mountains. Being a refugee from the Atlanta area. As retired as LEO we have witnessed the bottom of the trash pile where these animals exist. As Lt. Joe Kendra said once, he has left some places where he wanted to burn his clothes. Been there. Youngest son married into one of those familys and divorced out. We've always gone through tough times. I try to remember this too shall pass.

    Update;
    One of the things I and probably most cops dislike is making death notifications. Late last night I found out what it is like to be on the other end of one. My old dept showed up to tell me that my son was dead. It turns out that he was obsessed with his ex girl friend and committed suicide in front of their old home which she still owns. I guess I need some heavy prayer this week for my family and his two kids.

    Thanks folks. I will pass it all on to the family and his kids.
    The only other thing I ask is this; If you are considering suicide GET HELP. The pain, anguish and even anger does NOT end with you gone. If you know someone considering suicide get them help if at all possible. Even if you only spend time with them encouraging them that things will end well, DO something for them. I ask this in the name of my son and his kids.

    I may or may not be on here over the next 4-5 days folks. We made final arrangements today and visitation will be Wed evening with services Thursday morning. I am not looking forward to this. It will probably be the roughest week since I buried my Dad many years ago. The hardest part for me will be to keep it all together for the rest of the family simply because I have to. My son had many friends some of those we consider as close as sons and daughters. I know this too shall pas eventually but still I do not look forward to it this week.
