It seems too trite to say "I'm sorry for your loss", b/c when one loses their child...it is MUCH MORE important than to just say "I'm sorry" !!
I lost a baby boy @ 10 wks old, and "sorry" just did not cut it :-(
I will spend the rest of my life fighting addiction of ALL types, namely heroin. My 32yr old daughter had been addicted to heroin since she was 27!
Addiction has NO limits. What many people fail to realize is that attorneys- - doctors - - police officers and many other high profiled people are addicted to heroin. It is NOT just a young persons addiction....too many people pass judgement thinking that it's just a slacker young people's issues. I am here to help knowledge people that this is just NOT true !!
I will however be praying for your breaking heart. Plz know that I will keep fighting for a cure & a solution to fight addiction for the rest of my entire life.
May God have mercy on your family..may God help you to find some kind of peace to know that you did all that you could to help your beloved son.
I'm sending much love & comforting hugs to you & Michael.
