My Story

Timothy is my son.  He was 27 years old when he passed away and I remember right from the start we had a hard time.  When I went into labor with him his Dr. was out of town and was due back.  The hospital called him and he told them he would be there in time because I wasn't ready yet and he had plenty of time.  I was in labor for 42 hours and he was my 4th child to be born.  I knew something wasn't right.  When he finally got here he wasn't breathing so with dr's help and oxygen he finally breathed.  He was so pretty.  He had blond hair and big blue eyes.
As he grew, it seemed that he was the one out of my five sons that would always be getting hurt. As I look back now I realize what a hard time he had through out his young life. As it turned out he was the only one that I had to graduate from High School and start College.  He met a older girl and married her.  She had a daughter and they had 2 more daughters.  He eventually adopted the oldest one.  He did several job's including driving a truck.  He got to go everywhere.  Now I understand why.  He love New York and went there several times. He also went to Las Vegas and loved that also. 
About 3 months after his youngest daughter was born he was helping his brother paint an apartment and fell with a seizer.  After a trip to the ER we were told that he had a mass on his brain.  He was transferred to an out of town hospital and had brain surgery and was dignosed with brain cancer.
My darling son and all of us fought this desease and refused to let him give up.  His poor body just couldn't take any more.  He passed away on July 31, 2006 and left 3 beautiful little girls.  They are so young and don't understand why their daddy had to go.  I really can't expect them to understand because I don't either.
