Hey Mary, It's hard to believe it has been 6 years since we lost our children. I really shouldn't say lost because we know through our faith in a Loving God exactly where they are... with Him. I pray you are filled with total peace and hope today, tomorrow and always. Love, Bren Close

I understand this journey we walk together Mary. Our paths were crossed when Jamie and Wendy brought us together. When you struggle I will help you as you helped me first. We live so many miles a part but in my heart you and Jamie will always live there daily. I am always here for you any hour of the day my beloved friend. Love Bren Close

Happy Birthday in Heaven today Jamie.

Mary I was so sad to have learned about this today and on his birthday to boot. Things always happen for a reason so they say so I believe there was definately a reason I just found you on here today.

From one mother to another this sure is a difficult road we travel. All my love and thoughts and prayers are with you.

Birthdays are easier for me than angel dates because at least the day they were born was one of the happiest times of our lifes.

I wish so much I could change things for the both of us and bring our boys back to us.

Methadone is such a horrible dangerous drug and it makes me so mad that doctors are useing it for pain for people. Its just as bad as Herion to me

All my love Janeane

Missing You  / Bren ONeal (An Angel )
We have so many unanswered questions about our childrens death. That causes us to ask "why" over & over as we cry out to God.  Our faith in a Loving God shows us mercy on those of us left behind. Daily we pray for peace & hope knowing one day we will meet face to face....then it will not matter all of those  millions of times we ask"why why why ? I love you Mary. Love Bren Close

Sending Love & Prayers  / Bren O'Neal (Friend)

Mary & Jamie, You both changed my life forever & for that reason I'm truly thankful for the ultimate sacrifice. Without a doubt I know Jamie & Wendy brought us together as mothers. Mother to mother we understand each others heartache, the loss we have suffered can feel overwhelming at times. It will never feel natural to bury our children first.  Our lives have been forever changed, it has brought us to roads we never wanted to travel. We have found a new purpose in our lives unfortunately, one that is met with great controversary. Trying to save lives from a monster named methadone that seeks to devour lives of innocent victims. I'm honored to stand by your side Mary to bring about awareness & change so that others may not have to learn  to live with our pain & sorrow. All My Love, Bren

Such a handsome young man.  / Tonja Brown
Like my son Timmy, both handsome young men taken by methadone.

How I pray that this drug had never been invented.

But it has.  We need to do all we can to help other parents from suffering the heartbreaking loss this drug can cause.

One day at a time.

Sincerely,

Tonja Brown

I got clean on Dec 10, 2007. Had it not been for you Mother's valiant fight in your name, I might have fallen, and others too. You are still with us because by living on through your mother, she has reached out to those addicted, and shared you with us. Now you live on in our hearts. God Bless You Mary.  Jamie we never met, but I know you through your mother and you are missed. Close

For a life taken too young  / Mike Vukmanovic (none)
I did not know you personally but I have known many like you.  When I was your age and as were my friends and associates, we did things which were foolish and we were bulletproof.

I walk this world alone now wondering how was I spared when so many of 'my people' were not.

I feel betrayed, angered, alone and ashamed.  Then I also feel blessed because maybe I was spared so that I may be here today sharing my experiences with someone who may need to hear that they are not alone anymore.

Whatever the reasons are, your life and flame were extinguished way too early.

The Empty Chair, by Baydon S.  / Mary Haynes (Mother)

This is a letter I recently received in the mail after I was 
contacted by phone by this guy named Baydon whom 
I never met but this was the best Christmas present that 
I could have wished for. Baydon, if you ever see this, I 
want you to know that this has meant the world to me 
and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for not 
forgetting my boy. Here is the letter I received on 12/15/07. 
Love, Mary (Jamie's Mom)

Mary, Jamie chaired the first NA meeting I went to after rehab. He treated me so well that night that he was a big part of why I kept coming back. His passing hit me hard and had a profound effect on my recovery. I wrote these lyrics in memory of Jamie. Thanks to Jamie, I just picked up my one year key tag. I want you to have it. This song has touched alot of people in recovery, not just here in Concord either, all across the US, Virgin Islands and Scotland. I just wanted you to know that his life counted for something and continues to help other sick and suffering addicts. I hope you find some comfort in knowing that. Baydon

Lyrics
The Empty Chair...by Baydon
in grateful memory of Jamie P.

1. There's an empty chair in the room tonight.
Im listening to my home group share why he's not here tonight.
He was a runaway train on a broken track.
At the end of the line was a heart attack.
We're all dressed in black.
That train ain't coming back
to his empty chair in the room tonight.

2. There's an empty chair in the room tonight.
I'm remembering what he shared for me when it was my first night.
He could tell that I was in alot of pain.
He told me that I never had to use again...
He didn't die in vain,
he helps flag down trains
from his empty chair in the room tonight.

(Instrumental)

There's an empty chair in the room tonight.
I listen while we share for the newcomers here tonight.
They alread know it won't get better out there.
Maybe I could tell them "about the empty chair".
How trains that don't stop here
run til they crash somewhere.
Leaving empty chairs in the rooms tonight.

There are too many empty chairs in the rooms tonight. Close

Jamie use to sing this song, by Sammy Hagar, when we were younger and thinking about it now brings a smile to my face. Jamie left me with tons of wonderful, exciting and CRAZY memories. I miss him so much. Those who knew Jamie knew how he loved to crack jokes. I miss that so much too. Jamie, I love you and know that one day we'll laugh together again.

I have known Jamie and Don and Mary for quite a few years now.
I know how much Don and Mary loved him and wanted the very best for Jamie and I am sure that Jamie knew this. I am so thankful that they  have been given a chance to love his child now, I pray that Jamie can see this child from Heaven just as I pray that my brother Jon can see his children.

Love Lane
