Still waiting for you to walk in the door (I can hear the swoosh now), laugh your famous 1/2 laugh, 1/2 chuckle, and say - "HA, I REALLY FOOLED YOU ALL...this has to be the best joke ever." and then you sit down with a Red Bull for Steak and Baked Potatoes, or maybe some Roast or even spaghetti. Whatever you want!

Good nite Mr. Mudd,

In a week it will be 15 months, a drop in time but forever in all our memories... Things are moving slow but I do make progress. Your brother and sisters miss you so much as do all of us. There are so many things you should be doing!!!! I look at your pictures every day, listen to your music most every day, think about you countless times EVERY DAY!

Who Am I by Casting Crowns

Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name
Would care to feel my hurt

Who am I, that the Bright and Morning Star
Would choose to light the way
For my ever wandering heart

Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You are

I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
A vapor in the wind

Still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling
And You've told me who I am

I am Yours, I am Yours

Who Am I, that the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love and watch me rise again

Who Am I, that the voice that calmed the sea
Would call out through the rain
And calm the storm in me

Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You are

I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
A vapor in the wind

Still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling
And You've told me who I am

I am Yours, I am Yours

I am Yours
Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear
'Cause I am Yours
I am Yours


...and now, my sweet PJ, you know the truth of the Heavens...and you, who came as such a gift, are back with He who made you. I treasure the time that you were here and know that you are always close.

Hey PJ..... found one more picture of you in a group of undeveloped rolls of film. You were at Grandma's house playing ball if I remember correctly, Ha... my memory.... I've been thinking (and dreaming) a lot about death lately.... yours, my own. You'll laugh at the thought that just now rolled thru my head..... "now's not the right time". I've got some things to finish up first! I'm laughing and shaking my head right now, but you probably know that! Do you? Things are still so fucked up right now.....................................Night PJ

I believe we place our happiness in other people's hands

I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe you can't control or choose your sexuality
I believe that trust is more important than monogamy

I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe forgiveness is the key to your unhappiness
I believe that wedded bliss negates the need to be undressed

I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye.

Thanks, Samantha, for being the littlest sister that PJ loved.

I believe the sun should set on Love

I believe happiness comes from within and Love

I believe I'm loved completely by the people I love


I believe you can appreciate real love as long as you want it

I believe there is NEVER a reason to see if the grass is greener on the other side

I believe when you have true love , contentment , happiness , family and friends , you do know what you have , it's just very painful to say goodbye , when life sends it our way

I believe wedding bliss is happiness

I BELIEVE IN LOVE SURVIVING DEATH INTO ETERNITY

Hi Mr Mudd... I worked the other day just down the road from that shit-hole of a place you died in. I was down on the main-line of the freeway so I didn't have to look at the place for 12 hours! I might have burned it down or blown it up. Not a threat just a reflection. I thought about you all day. No closer to figuring things out or understading anything still.

Broken Wings by Flyleaf

Thank you for being
such a friend to me
Oh I pray a friend for life
And have I ever told you
how much you mean to me
Oh you're everything to me
I'm thinkin all the time
how to tell what I feel
I'm contimplating phrases
I'm gazing at eternity
I am floating in serenity

And I am so lost for words
And I am so overwhelmed

Please don't go just yet
Can you stay a moment please?
We can dance together
and we can dance forever

Under your stars tonight
We'll live and breathe this dream

Close your eyes
but don't dream too deep
and please pass me some memories
But I fall you're underneath
a thousand broken hearts
Carried by a thousand broken wings
A thousand broken wings

Hey Mr. PJ,
We never climbed Squaw Peak together but I've left your calling card twice on top the Mountain. I figure it's paper and degradable. You know what they say, ashes to ashes, dust to dust. You've been there and done that! Huh!

I'm at the Grand Canyon today. I ran down to the rim and walked for a bit along it's edge. Stopped a few times but finally found a spot just a bit off the walkway. Kinda quiet, off the beaten path. I just sat there and took it all in. Heard and saw some birds flying, soaring through space. I wondered if you can do that now in your own way! I'd like to think so. Monday was a hard day for some reason. I always get teary when I look back over the years in 36 minutes, even more so yesterday.

Today was sort of the other end of the spectrum... hopeful for lots of reasons. It's going to be cold here tonite. I'll look for you in the Sunrise tomorrow!

Nite Nite, I Love you!

Hey PJ,
well, I'm finally painting the rest of the house. took long enough! Your sister got me off my ass! When we got started I thought back to when I was redoing the Master bedroom, I was sleeping on Andy's bed, you were in my room on the floor. I was painting, patching, etc in my room. I remember waking up to wake you up so you could drive that green Chevy of Carls to work security at the old Williams AFB for that movie they were filming... The Kingdom.... You were such an extreme....... I don't know what to call it. There were so many things you were unable (maybe unwilling) to do yet you could score heroin just like ordering a cheeseburger. I'll never understand but maybe someday you'll be able to explain it to me!

Anyway the house is coming along, have a bunch of crap I need to get rid of.

Iknow, I know.... I always do

Love You as always and as much!!

Well, now you have Scamper up there with you. Hope he's having fun, making noise and keeping you awake...like he used to do while playing on his wheel in your room. The two of you made good roomies, since he liked being up at night and so did you! Love you..........................

Anonymous said...

Wow, so much drama...and started by somebody who wanted to be ANONYMOUS. You have a right to your opinion...thing is so do I.

Plus, I think my opinion and feelings count more than yours, this time, anyway!!!

I knew PJ since conception and for most of his life, he was someone to be proud of.

If you really knew PJ you would know that any threats came from the drugs talking, not him. I am sorry that you had to endure this, I apologize for that.

I lost my son, even when he was alive, to those drugs, and I know that that THING that he became was not him. Stealing, Lying, Dishonest...that describes the drug addict...sounds like most addicts, doesn't it?

If you only knew that PJ, you really missed out!

The great thing, and the saddest, is that PJ tried, hard, in the end, to overcome all of that. We, his family, had OUR PJ back! That's why his last slip was SO hard. We all, including PJ, were positive he could overcome this and be better for it.

Unfortunately, GOD had other plans.

No one, especially me, has put PJ on a pedestal - but I do thank him for making me a more compassionate and pro-active person when it comes to addiction, the people and families that live with it.

Funny you should say he was a "brat" because of all the things, good and bad, you can say about him, "brat" is probably the most inaccurate!

I love and will always love my child, my son, unconditionally. I will not apologize for that.

It was hell going through this with him and we will never be the same. But, I choose to celebrate the person Paul Mudd, Jr. truly was. The sensitive, honest, caring individual that gave homeless people his last dollars and shared his cheeseburgers with them! That was who he was for most of his life.

If you want to carry hatred and anger around, too bad. We're not asking anyone to read, write or visit this blog. Please don't, if it upsets you too much. On the other hand, if you want to continue in this way - feel free, just be up front and sign your blog. Don't be a coward.

By the way, if you look at the PJ Gear, it clearly says no one is making a profit on this. It is more an inside joke - PJ loved music and wanted to be a touring star...all tours have t-shirts. Get it...you probably don't.

And in closing, I have never left God, nor He me. If you are such a know-it-all on us (me), then you would know that, too.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I always enjoy a good debate! Just ask Paul, Sr!

Just three comments:

#1. Looking over this blog again I don't see any posting that puts him on a pedestal; just a group of family and friends grieving for their son/brother/friend.

#2. "...requirements of God"? Doesn't the bible say (paraphrasing here) "let the person who is free of all sin cast the first stone."? Unless that earlier post was from the Big Guy himself - I don't think anyone commenting to this blog has the right to call someone out about the requirements of God.

#3. The reality is that PJ/Paul is gone. You (earlier post person)might not miss him but there are plenty of people out there that still do. This is something we started to help us share stories, thoughts, memories, etc. about him- leave us to do that...

Mr or Mrs or Miss Anonymous.... I wasn't going to reply but .... will offer the following. I loved (and still do) my son unconditionally as I do ALL my children. I offer no excuses for him and his behavior during his short time here with us, just as I offer none for my own. I'll leave it up to God to judge PJ and myself for our sins while on this earth. PJ has already paid a high price as have all of us who knew and loved him, be they his family or friends!

I got a bit excited, wondering if she knew you..... She didn't..... What was I thinking, a city this size, wondering if one heroin user knew another! He told her your story, she cried a little.

Unfortunately I'm the first to leave a message on this 2 year mark. Hard to believe it has been that long already. I feel like I just found out. My heart still hurts when I think about all you're missing out on with us. I know things are better for you and you're not in pain. I just wish I could go back and shake you until you realized how much I (we) love you. Do you know that now? I'm sorry I couldn't save you. I feel like I let you down. I thought I was doing the right thing- being tough; letting you know that we were serious this time. If I had tried harder would you still be here? I love you so much.

Sorry you missed the roast, potatoes, fruit salad, salads, pie, mousse cake and brownies - hope you know how much we all love you. Even brought "shrimpies" and A-1 in your honor!!

Hey Mr. Mudd.... another day, another..... day without you around. Family was over...... Didn't think about it till everyone was gone but.... we didn't really talk about .... You! Not good, not bad.... just the way it was. We've all cried so many tears, thought all those thoughts, tried all that bargaining.... but things are the way things are.

We can try and change ourselves, we can work on changing the future but we can't change the past Son.... Much as I want to!

...... First tears I've cried today.... I Love you PJ!

..... stand on my porch, I see you sitting there on the swing. I present options to you,.... you don't like them. You walk away down the road....... looking like so many I see walking down my street. Is their story the same as yours?

I made choices, you made choices, we all do. Who would have thought life could be so fucked up! Would you have done things different? We won't know! I would have! Would it have changed things? We won't know!

Okay, so I found the picture album that had the "new" pics in it...was that what the light was all about? Strange, it went off right after I found it...and stayed off! Love you.

Going through my things and found a dvd that wasn't labeled. Popped it into my player and realized it was your movie. From the start of the first song I was crying, sometimes laughing, but mostly crying. I miss you so much. There were so many pictures I had forgotten about. Hearing you strum your guitar in one part brought me to tears again. I've already started to forget what your playing sounded like.

You're missing out on so much- not being here. I've gotten past the "wishing you would somehow call me so I can hear your voice again" phase; the staying up all night crying/heaving/can't breathe phase, and many more - so I know I'm getting better at dealing with you being gone. It still hurts so much. I've been hearing your songs playing a lot lately at different places I've been- and it's comforting, yet hurts my heart to hear them.

Saw a double rainbow a few weeks ago while driving. Also saw the sun's rays shining from behind a cloud. Seeing things like this makes me think of you automatically. Other people may look at things like that and just marvel at them; I see those things and want to believe you're saying "hi" and checking up on all of us. I miss you so much.

I just wonder what all of our lives would be like if you were still here. I like to think that you made it, you did it, all by yourself like you said you would and that you were finding a way to accept your struggles without drugs or alcohol. I don't think everyone would be one big happy family, but at least you were here on earth and I could call you whenever I wanted, and grab you and hug you at any time. It's so hard knowing that I can't do those things- I look at those pictures and I'm so frustrated. There won't be any more to take with you; everything with you is done at 22, but I wasn't ready to be done.

People say everything happens for a reason- what's the reason for this? Why?

Anonymous said...

WOW, Ditto to all that was written in that last note. I see things also ..... that traffic light that stays green just long enough for me to get through it..... legally. Thanks PJ.... I drive past the Hilton, see their shuttle van on the road... yeah, I'll sometimes speed up, pull up next to it to see if you might be driving... How F_ _ ked up is that PJ :)I wish I could see dead people, wish I could see you one last time.

Someone told me recently that I needed to forgive myself, for what I'm still holding onto. That at 22 years of age you were an adult, making adult choices. That "YOU" don't hold me responsible, that God doesn't even hold me responsible for what happened. That you were simply "on loan" to me, subject to being called back to heaven at a moments notice. I'm trying to work on those thoughts. Maybe you can help me with that PJ. I LOVE YOU!!

I'm sure your big sis would have loved your help right now...even if you don't know the difference between a wrench and a screw driver...HA...thinking about your homemade t-shirt when we were working on Vernon...the one with the big L on it...you always made me laugh even when I was REALLY mad! Love you...miss you!

Well, 13 years ago tonight your little sister Samantha was born. It was a happy time for us all, and you welcomed her with open arms.

Everytime we celebrate a family milestone, it's always bittersweet these days. Would have been different having you eat Fondue with us this evening (we wouldn't have said No thanks to the shrimp on the menu like we did for starters!).

Hoping you are watching over Samantha as she makes her way through life. She misses her big brother so much -- she tells us that all the time in her own way.

Nite nite PJ. I know you're here with us, just not the way we all want you to be.

:)

Just living life and moving through, enjoying your sisters and trying to make a difference and SLAM right in the face something reminds me of you and this intense pain just rushes through me.

Wow, 3 years since you were hanging out in the back of your dad's truck...how awful a time was that...somehow, even with the pain, I know you are so much better off now. Just wish it could have been different for you. I'm so sorry.

Saw John Carlson last night. He asked about everybody..... Wish he could have asked about you!

PJ..please help your family get through what would have been your 25th birthday. I know they all need to know that you are doing better up there than they are all doing down here. I can't imagine it gets any easier for them but just show them that rainbow..or the sun behind the cloud..or anything to make them remember that while you were only here for such a short time...you loved them as much as they still love you.

Happy Birthday Mr. Mudd, 25 years since you came into this world. What was your hurry to leave it? Life has it's daily challenges but just a little time makes them easier to handle. Left your card on top Squaw Peak, yeah I littered. We never made it up there did we? You probably would have whined..... I miss that whine.

Love You! Miss You!

We should be shoveling gravel somewhere together today...remember, seemed like every year some fix-it project landed on your birthday out in the HOT sun...talk about whining...I miss it, too.
