+Jade Smith what a wonderful dedication of creativity to your son. It means he was quite special to his friends, if they did something like that for him.
My best friend died suddenly at the age of 26 from carbon monoxide poisoning (it leaked into the car as her fiance ran the motor to keep them warm while talking on a winter night). She was a dynamo ,,, amazing. Her death changed us all. All her friends did something to honor her. That is why I know you son had to be special if his friends did that for him.
I am haunted by your son's death. It feels horribly ironic that you who have dedicated your life to help people who are dying to let go & not dread death, had a son that dreaded life. Totally inconceivable. Totally unfair.  
When my father committed suicide, he'd burned all his bridges ... had nothing left to turn to. But for a young man, like your son, such a situation does not seem possible. So I feel such sadness for him & you.

I took these at Twin Falls on a journey to find healing since my son just died 2 months ago. I miss Ian R. Bryson, aka Ianisyourmaster! He was my baby boy.

+Jade Smith, I feel so bad for her parents being put under the microscope ... being accused of not getting help for her or throwing her under the bus.
My mom brought my sister to the dr as a pre-teen & was told she was worrying too much; it was normal teen behavior. By the time that my sister was diagnosable, she was an adult & refused to allow drs to talk to my mom or me. Like Jodi, my sister's counselors only get my sister's version of the world, which she has altered (lied about) to fit how she needs to see herself. As an adult, there is absolutely nothing we can do to get her the help she needs. She is as secretive as Jodi & we have no idea why (no one has ever looked thru her stuff).
As for Jodi's parents throwing her under the bus. If my sister did something criminal/violent, no one who knows her would not be surprised. 
The only thing I find odd is her father referring to Jodi's mother as "his wife" in reference to Jodi vs. "her mother", which seems self-absorbed. That he doesn't call Jodi his daughter could be due to his having given up long ago from having any pleasant relationship with her.  But the mom seems legitimately overwhelmed. 
It hurts my heart to hear what strangers are saying about them from only a few minutes of interview tape.

Life is beautiful in all of it's utter unpredictability
Introduction
My name is Jade aka SmittyJade and I have worked as an emotional support volunteer for the terminally ill  and have dabbled in art therapy and care giving for the mentally and terminally ill. People seem to find this hard to understand and somehow unintentionally consider it must be depressing or unhealthy, however I have reaped the opposite reward.  I find it quite uplifting although at times naturally draining and that is why it is good I can say I am in my best mental and physical health ever. I write a blog I have been working at for a number of years with it's latest installment at:  http://www.smittyjadesjadedtales.com/

It is just about hospice and volunteer work and my experiences, but oh so much more, so stop by visit and take a read. Reading good!
Bragging rights
I like working with the terminally and the mentally ill, it not only gives me great joy to serve my community by volunteering time but it always reminds me how life is beautiful in all of it's utter unpredictability!
