On Wednesday, April 8, 2020 I was awoken by Ken on the phone saying that I needed to come to his house that my son needed me. I though my son was having a mental breakdown and needed me to talk to him and help him through whatever it was he was going through.
When I got to the house there were emergency personnel on site, an ambulance, state police and the sherriff's patrol vehicles. My son was sitting in a sherriff's SUV sobbing hysterically. He was and still is very distraught.
The picture on the left is his Christmas picture. He is a beautiful child, an angel now.
I can't stop crying. I am trying to hold it together to help my son, but I don't know how to help him, other than just being there and hugging him and holding his hand. I keep reassuring him that I love him.
I am trying to raise $2,000.00 to cover any expenses, the ambulance, the cremation, urn and burial plot. I am so grateful to anyone that can help. I don't know what else to do.
What I didn't know is they were there for my son, he awoke to finding his little Owen, 4 and 1/2 months old dead in his bed. My family is in crisis. We have to try to hold it together for Owen's Mom and Dad. They are so grief stricken that I am worried about there mental health. I have done nothing but cry. I am appealing to all of you for help. I would like to try to get some donation's for them to help defray the cost of Owen's final expenses. Can you help, will you help, even if it is just sharing this post. I am making a donation button that is linked to my pay pal account. This money will be used to pay for his cremation, urn and a final resting spot.
I am sorry to post such a tragic event but my family is in crisis and we need help. I loved Owen to the moon and back and am forever gratefull that I was allowed to hold him and kiss him good by before the coroner took him from us.
