Prayer said...God Bless him and his family in their time of need.
I have joined the prayer group.
Our prayers are with him and his family and friends. He is so fortunate to have a friend like you. God bless.
Thank you John and Thank you all.
This past Monday our only child lost his 20 year long battle with hard drug addiction. He suffered a massive heart attack brought on by a fatal drug over dose. We have been holding a family vigil at his bedside in ICU since then. Last night he was declared brain dead and the family will be gathering this morning at his bedside to remove his life support and say our last goodbyes. He was a kind and gentle person who was liked and loved by all that knew him, he just wasn't able to fight the demons within himself. So today on my 65th birthday I will be handing our son over to God to watch over. Having your children pass on before yourself is just not right.
Thank you all for your prayers Jay Buscio
I'm so sorry, Jay.
Oh Jay. Dammit man. We're so sorry to hear this. I can't imagine what you're going through. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and yours. Take care.
Danial and Carol
So sad Jay. Our sincere condolences.
Once again we are reminded just how fragile life is - it is precious and highly valued....unfortunately mainly by us "older folks".
Such a shame that young ones just don't realize how fleeting good health is - until it's gone.
I wish there was a way to help. I'm so sorry.
I'm so sorry to hear that, Jay.
Prayers are still going to you and your family.
Deepest condolences, Jay. May God strengthen you and your family through this terrible trial. You're in my thoughts and prayers.
Prayers and thoughts from Atlanta. So sorry to hear of this tragedy.
Prayers and condolences from Houston, so sorry for your loss.
Remember the good, and relish all the favorable memories.
Try to see it as a temporary good-bye. He is simply going on ahead of you to help make a place for you. You will see him again one day. I recently saw the movie, based on a true story, "Heaven is For Real" which may help you through this tragedy. God be with you. Jim Patrick
Continued prayers for you and your family

My heart is saddened as I bow my head in prayer for you and your family.
Our hearts go out to you and your family, Jay.
Dick & Shera Lynn
My sincere condolences to you and your family Jay.
We all love you and feel your pain. Our family has fought drug addiction and suffered a loss also! Move forward as you can and spread the word that drugs will kill.
I'm so sorry Jay. If there is anything I can do please call. You and your family are in my prayers.
You and your family are in our hearts and prayers. I've had dear friends and a wonderful nurse addicted to narcotics and it is exceedingly difficult to get away from and stay away from "Slick". He is a persuasive conniving devil! Your son is away from him now in a much better place, and it is only a temporary absence until you see him again. You are right, a father should never have to lose a son! I am so sorry for you.
Noel and Teresa Chicoine
Since John R's post, I have wondered who and what. However, Jay, this I did not expect. My deepest condolences to you and your family.
Praying for peace in this time of need for you and you family Jay.
Jay, continued prayers and condolences from Denise & I
Jay, I can't imagine your pain! No parent should ever have to bury their child. Hope you find peace!
Oh, Jay. I'm so sorry.
Condolences to you and those whom you love and love you.
Though we would rather he were in your hands still, we are relieved to know who's hands he is now within. GOD bless and keep you guys.
Erich and Ralene
Sorry to hear such tough news. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
I hope and pray God may grant you and your family strength, peace, and hope, and surround you with his love during this most difficult time. Please know we are all praying for you and your family.
So Sorry, our Prayers are with you and your family...
Sorry to hear about the death of your son Jay. I pray for peace and strength for you and your family as you mourn for him.
John in Milwaukee
I'm so sad to hear of your loss. Please accept our condolences and peace for you and your family.
John R. Regan. Thank you for alerting us to Jay's ordeal in such a tactful way, by first protecting his privacy and allowing him to make the choice as to whether or not to go public, so we, as a group, can at least try to ease his pain. You are a good man. Jim Patrick
Thoughts and prayer will be with you and yours
It might be a good time to cry or curse depending on how you are feeling. And you may even want to do both at the same time. A song that I like during times of loss is by Brad Paisley called “When I Get Where I am Going.” And yes – there will be some sort of 30 second commercial for something at the beginning – but after 10 seconds you click “skip” and then the song starts. It is located at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYHT-TF4KO4 . And remember to “turn off the video at the end or at least hit replay” as sometimes the song that follows doesn’t fit in at all.
Grief – it is a normal and necessary part of loss even though it isn’t an easy part either. I was glad I knew my parents had gone to heaven but I still missed them dearly. Funny, I don’t even use hand gestures at the people who cut me off in traffic but I sure felt that way towards God -- especially about a month after my Mom passed away. And I know God is “big enough” to let me be real with Him about that. If you haven’t read through the 5 stages of grief lately, I recommend you take a look at them (one summary is at: http://www.way2hope.org/5_stages_of_grief_and_loss.htm -- disclaimer -- I liked their explanation of the 5 stages of grief but I haven’t looked at the rest of their site.) Most folks go through them to one degree or another. We will be praying for you and your family during this time.

Jay I was shocked to read it was you John was referring to. Really sorry. I think many of us have dealt with drug/alcohol addiction in some form or another, but honestly just can't imagine loosing someone you hold dear to it.
So sorry Jay,
We are all born human and all have flaws, some are more apparent than others but we are all broken people no matter what we think. There is no shame with your son and he just had a bad demon that he couldn't put back in the cage and it was one of the worst. I have them, you do also and every person here has had something wrong at some time, if not now it is soon to come and we have all had them in the past...just human nature, our gift from Eve for eating the forbidden fruit. The first human mistake that set the standard for all of us.
I pray for peace to you and all involved, we will all be reunited in a perfect place someday.
Jay, my heartfelt sympathy and prayers go to you and your family. At times like these, the song "Amazing Grace" always comes to mind.
Hang tough. He's at peace with himself and with his Lord now.
so sorry praying for you all
After recently spending time with you and your wife and seeing the joy and excitement you two have for the passions in life that you love, I am so so sorry to hear this. I can't imagine.
Jay, the loss of a spouse is the worst that I have ever experienced. It was very hard, to put it gently. I cannot even imagine the loss of a child. As hard as it is, losing a spouse is at least within the natural order of things. Losing a child is not. You have my heartfelt condolences and my prayers at what has to be the most difficult time of your life.
Jay - It's hard for me to imagine how you feel, but please know know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. You have our most sincere condolences and sympathy.
Keith and Carol
Sorry for your loss, may the love of God, the peace of Jesus, the guidance of the Holy Spirit be with you.
Jay,I don't know you but have enjoyed your posts over the years. I am so sorry for your loss.I have walked in those shoes,I lost my son 14 years ago at age 24.It will take time to heal but in time the pain will slowly ease.God bless you and yours.
My condolences. May God help you and your family to bear this difficult burden.
Jay, this poem has helped me through losses that I have suffered, prayers for your comfort at this difficult time.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!
Jay, stunned to read your words and struck with sorrow for you and your family. You all are and shall remain in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
Jay, Linda's & my thoughts and prayers are with you. I know faith will carry you through this.
Jay, when John made the post I thought of someone else who need some payers, now with the facts it's better to "send" them in the right direction. More to follow(payers). Having never been in those "shoes" I only have a hint of what your family is going thru, keep in mind the support you have here. J
At the club meeting tonight we had a time of silence to honor the memory of your son and reflect on your loss prayerfully. I personally am beyond being able to wrap my mind around such a loss, even though I know some who have endured it. Tonight I pray that the peace of God which passeth understanding be with you and remain with you in your time of trial.
Jay...The news is a shock to me. My prayers are for comfort for you and your wife. We do not have an "awful Waffle" seminar scheduled, but you are welcome at my place anytime. Take care.
Jay,....you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Some things are just impossible to understand, except that it is true as it is said that He works in mysterious ways......
Very sad. I am sorry to hear of your misfortune Jay. Take care my friend.
Incredibly sad tragedy. No family should be faced with these challenges. There is no doubt much comfort in knowing that your son is finally free of his demons and safe in God's comforting hands. My prayers are with you all.
So very sorry to hear of your tragic loss.
Thank you for the poem, Ed.
I hope it helps you, Jay, in this time of awful grief.
Jay, I am so heartfelt at your loss.
Death will reach us all but ...... Surround your self with those you love and who love you. You'll make.
Jay I am sorry to hear this.
You are in our prayers.
So sorry for your loss. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. It warms our hearts to know the Model T family is here for people when they need it most. God bless
I lost my son 25 years ago, he was 16. I didnt know what had happened to him and I looked for him 8 years. Then he was identified as a drowning victim in the river. Im sorry for your loss, but there is something worse than death. At least you didnt have to look for him also. Anyone who tells you they know how you feel is a liar, unless they have lost a child. Michael was my only child, hope you have others. And, not to sound calloused, by it wont get any better my friend. im saying a prayer for you
My sympathy to you and your family Jay.
I lost my 41 year old brother for, pretty much, the same thing plus alcohol.
I have first hand experience how hard it is to try to get them to straighten out and the sadness when they can't or won't.
Lord only knows what's going on inside them and now the Lord does.
My prayers are with you and your family.
Losing my first born son is the greatest pain I have ever endured.
