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.

  1. Thinking about you and your family today and remembering your Jason. I’ve loved getting to know about him through your blog. I’m only almost 3 years along this horrible grief journey after losing my dear Noah, but I appreciate you and everything you share from your heart.

  2. Somehow I missed some of the pictures earlier, they all are good, but I love the one of Jason holding the trophy.
