Jason’s birthday

From my journal dated July 29, 2002:

Jason's birthday - July 29, 1982

Jason’s birthday.

Jason would have been 20 years old today. It would have been a great day to celebrate. 9 lbs. 10 1/2 oz., 7:15 a.m., 7/29/82, auburn hair (that quickly turned blond), beautiful baby boy. Such a fun little guy. I am so glad he was born in our family. I’m so sad he’s gone.

About Rebecca Carney - One Woman's Perspective

My name is Becky Carney. My husband, Joe, and I have been married for 44 years. We have two living children, Eric (41) and Jenna (36). We lost a baby in utero at 19 weeks in 1987. In 2002, our middle son, Jason (19), and his best friend, Alina (20), were broadsided by a drunk driver who was going at least twice the speed limit. They both died instantly. This blog is written from my perspective as a bereaved parent. I don't claim to know what it's like to walk in anyone else's shoes. Each situation is different; each person is different. Everyone handles grief differently. But if I can create any degree of understanding of what it's like to be a parent who has lost a child, then I have succeeded in my reason for writing this blog.
