“In Memory” Day: Wednesday, March 18

Jeff Williams, IN MEMORY of his son, Kyle Williams


“I have no doubt that if we had known the signs of inhalant abuse, we would have seen that Kyle was exhibiting them and been able to deal with this. I fully believe that if Kyle knew the truth about inhalants, he wouldn’t have used them and would still be alive. Since Kyle’s death I have found out that all of my beliefs about inhalants were wrong. Most inhalants are common household products with 6th through 10th graders having the highest starting rate of abuse. I know this isn’t about Kyle but it just amazes me how wrong we were.  The saying that I find best describes how I feel was said by Rose Kennedy, who lost two of her sons. She said. “It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.” On March 2nd, 2005, Kyle passed away, but he still affects us, his family, and every day.  I don’t think I could have ever imagined how much losing a child would change the rest of our lives, but not a day passes that I don’t continue to see the major effects losing Kyle has, and continues to have, on all of us.”

Mary Kunik, IN MEMORY of her son, Gregory Munsch


“I wouldn't wish this on any parent. Greg was my first born child. I lost him. I will never see him again. Until we meet in heaven one day. All I have now is memories and pictures. His ashes sit on my dresser along with a picture of him, an angel and the Blessed Mother. I miss him all day, every day. I hate the fact that he died alone. I hate the fact that I couldn't be there to help. Please do not ever consider doing this or any other inhalant. And/or drugs. No Mother deserves to go through what I go through on a daily basis. He is my every thought and I miss him & love him to death! I don't even have a place of rest for him so I often go up to behind Walmart, place a cross on a telephone pole by where he was found, a Christmas branch with a bulb on it, roses for Valentine’s Day, a green shamrock necklace for St. Patrick’s Day. This is not the way it is supposed to be!”


Julie Millard, IN MEMORY of her son, Matthew Young

“We learned of Matt's inhaling refrigerant from the parent of one of his friends during the summer of 2004, when he turned 13 years old.  In 2013, almost nine years after the first refrigerant incident in our backyard, Matt was found dead on an air conditioning unit in the backyard of one of my neighbors. The friend that he had scared several years before ended up being one of the pallbearers that carried Matt to his grave.  Rest In Peace, Matt..”

 

 Kim Manlove, IN MEMORY of his son, David Manlove


“As parents who spent our teen and young adult years in the late 60's and 70's, we believed that we would know the signs of serious drug use, and thought David's actions were just the experimentation that lots of kids go through. But we were wrong. The toxic chemical in the [computer duster] propellant had frozen David's lungs and interrupted the electrical activity of his heart, putting him into cardiac arrest. After almost an hour of life-saving efforts, after being assured by the doctor in the emergency room that they had done everything they could, we did one of the hardest things a parent will ever do - we asked the team to stop, and they did.”

 

“Two weeks before David died, we had a suspicion that he was inhaling computer duster. When confronted about it, he denied it vehemently, declared that he knew how dangerous it was, and vowed that he would never do something so stupid. Exasperated, we asked "David, where are you going with all this, what are you doing with your life?" With all the earnestness of his 16 years, he replied "I want to do something with my life. I want to be a doctor like my grandfather. I want to make a difference." In sharing his story, we believe David is making a difference.”

In memory of my son, Josh.  It has been nearly 20 years and as you can see I still reach out to forums for comfort and acknowledgement.  I miss him everyday and pray that in some way his death saved another person and family from such a great loss.  Just had to share when I saw this link.  My thoughts and prayers to all who have lost someone to inhalant abuse.  Forever in my heart, Joshua Gene Elliott10891536_10204211589584001_1878028279614145579_n.jpg
