"I understand. If I could talk to my mom I would tell her that I am sorry for so many things. I really wish that I had appreciated her more when I was younger. I just sort of took it for granted that she would always be there.  "

"This is where it becomes about me. And I am sorry that any of this is about me. For all the love that my mom gave me in return, those four years were full of trauma, anxiety, worry, panic, sadness, fear. So many 911 calls. Every time I worried that…"

I have only been on this site for a few days. And I realize that I am an anonymous person to all of you. You are to me as well. Over time I hope to get to know many of you better, to find out your stories, who you lost, and why you loved them so much.

I don't want to be just a random name, or that kid who misses his mama. I want you to know who I am. The first and most important thing to know is that no one calls me Brett. My nickname is "Oatmeal." I have been called Oatmeal…

How Far is Heaven?

I'm a mamas boy. There was a time when I was embarrassed to say that. Not anymore. I would scream it from the mountain tops, especially if I thought that my mom could hear me. I was her caretaker. I couldn't stand the idea of my mom spending her last days (years) in assisted living. I wanted her to die in her own home, and I wanted to give something back to the woman who not only gave me life, but also loved me unconditionally until her last day on earth. She died on Christmas Eve, 2015. And…
