About my Loss:
My son passed away early morning of November 22 of an accidental overdose. He had insomnia and someone had sold him a fentanyl patch to "slow him down." It worked one night, but didn't the next and then someone gave him Xanax. Died of respiratory failure. I was sleeping next to him. He had called me to come (he lived in TX but was moving to Florida). He had no idea what the patch really was. I am having the woman who sold it prosecuted. I am heartbroken.

Oh Jill, that is so awful...my son was into Xanax with his friends. I don't understand why. Good for you to have her prosecuted, I only wish I could find the person that turned my son onto heroin, ultimately I know it was his choice to do it of course. Hugs to you, I'm so sorry.

When I was twelve my mother was murdered then my beloved sweet grandmother died when I was 18. My maternal grandfather died when I was 22. My maternal grandmother died when I was 33 and my final living parent/grandparent died when I was 35. I lived with a lot of loss most of it came at a sudden clip. I'm left with incredible feeling of loneliness even though I've been married for 20+ years and have two wonderful children. It's tough to share my true feelings with my wife because it's so hard…See More
When I was twelve years old, my mother was brutally murdered during a robbery of our home. I came within minutes of finding her body but by sheer chance I didn't. It has been over 35 years since that day but it still effects my life today. As a child, I went through the trial of the man convicted of killing my beautiful mother then as a man I went through his parole process finally his death from illness in prison. See More
