I am so sorry for your loss LMS. May his memory be a blessing.
I’m sorry you had to go through that with your son. Thank you for your kind words. I’m having a bad day. It’s so hard.I am so sorry, lovemyson1. I too remember your son’s journey, and yours as well. He gave many of us hope and lived his new life with passion and purpose.
My son was just released from the hospital after spending 2 days intubated and a week in the ICU. He could have easily been your son with just a tweak of timing. As you said, with addiction a single mistake can have fatal consequences. I am so very sorry this has happened.
Oh you poor thing. Call a friend, one that doesn't live too near you, and ask them to come take the car to their home until you are ready to figure out what to do with it! People always say, "If there's anything I can do..." and they mean it, but there's nothing to be done. Well this is a concrete thing someone CAN do for you! You must know someone who would get it out of your sight for a few weeks at least. It's a very small thing to ask of someone and they will feel better for having lent you a hand.What’s killing me today, is that his car was brought to us two nights ago. This is the car that he passed away in. I don’t know what to do. I’m trying not to look at it when I go in to the garage to get in my car, but I just imagine him dying in the driver seat.
So sorry for your loss. I am glad he will be remembered as a great guy to so many and hope that brings you some degree of compfort.Most of you have read my journey from several years ago. It’s been the hardest experience of my life. And then he got better God rescued him and he was a healthy Marine Sniper, bodybuilder had many girlfriends, friends that loved him and a family who adored him. But last month he showed up to a birthday party while he was on leave, and we saw the signs that he was using again. That night, he left us for good to be with the Lord. Our handsome, charismatic, buffed & loved son passed away. I struggle with sharing this with you all because I was so happy and optimistic about his future but I feel it’s my responsibility to tell you all because I know you’re going through it. Heroin and really all drugs are so evil. It’s truly unacceptable to me. Addiction is so very very sad. He had been 100% clean for three years and chose to party and I believe drinking was a gateway to the next level for him, he had an opportunity he took it and it was lethal. I don’t even know what words I have to tell you all about what to do about your sons daughters brother sisters husbands I just know that I am hurting so bad and that relapse is real. He literally was the healthiest I’ve ever seen him the day he passed away. He was honored greatly with a military honors burial and over 20 Marines came from out of state to pay their respects. He was greatly loved, he encouraged people, motivated people and was a light in this world. We are truly devastated beyond comprehension.
